Zumiez debuts Lakai x Lena Dunham

Self-expression can take many forms, just one of which is fashion. So when fashion can communicate an important message while also benefitting a worthy cause, you can’t go wrong.

Cue Lena Dunham’s new collaboration with Zumiez, called the “Lakai x Lena Dunham.” Dubbed on Zumiez’s tumblr as “an ode to womanhood,” the collaboration features the brand’s iconic Lakai sneaker with sketches of “fantastical women”drawn by illustrator Joana Avillez, all laid over bubble gum pink and Fura white backgrounds.

Inspired by a “workshop Lena and her sister Grace attended while at Young Women Empowered,” Zumiez says that a portion of the proceeds will benefit Y-WE, an “organization that empowers young women from diverse backgrounds to step up as leaders in their schools, communities and the world.”
