The collaboration with the seventh-generation Navajo artist, which commenced in December, initially showcased her vibrant tapestries and ancestral designs. The latest collection, “Color in Motion,” lives up to its name by presenting richly pigmented apparel that incorporates Glasses’ traditional motifs, alongside her passion for skateboarding. Comprising women’s, men’s, and children’s clothing and accessories, the 24-piece range prominently features Navajo designs, proudly displaying four-directional crosses and wedge-weave emblems. Glasses’ heritage echoes throughout the collection, with a color palette of turquoise, orange, yellow, and red, paying homage to Navajo philosophy.

Glasses further honors her roots by including silver and turquoise jewelry crafted by Navajo and Hopi families. Speaking with Hypebeast, Glasses expressed, “Indigenous artists don’t usually get these big collaborations because no one really looks to our communities, but with this [partnership], it’s beautiful because we get to celebrate our artists and it’ll also open so many doors for others.”

“Color in Motion” is now available on Ralph Lauren’s online store, with a portion of proceeds supporting the Phoenix Children’s Foundation Patient and Family Assistance Funds for Native American Families and the Center for Cleft & Craniofacial Care.
