RGB X BETTY BOOP COLLECTION TO DEBUT AT FRED SEGAL: Collaboration marks the debut of Betty of the People Initiative Celebrating Community and Inclusion!
Today marks the launch of a limited-edition RGB x Betty Boop collection and we truly could not be more excited! The collection, featuring T-shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies, and sweatpants is available right now, in stores and online, at Fred Segal.
The collaboration debuts Fleischer Studios’ Betty of the People initiative. The program, focused on embracing a broad range of identity communities around the world, showcases the style and artistry of a diverse variety of partners creating designs that celebrate community, equity, unity, and inclusion; values that central to the spirit of Betty Boop and the Fleischer Studios brand.
The inspiration for the BOOP Produced by: RGB collection came from RGB designer Antione Joyner. As a Black designer, Joyner wanted this collection to showcase the spectrum of shades people of color represent. As he incorporated the hues of the people in his life, he hopes this collection will inspire others to share the stories of color in their own community.
We certainly feel inspired and are thrilled to share these amazing designs with the world!
