Since its inception in 1995, Paul Frank Industries has sold $100 million worth of its cute but edgy clothes and accessories. Late last year, however, it lost the allegiance of Paul Frank himself, the design savant whose quirky creations, starting with Julius the monkey, gave birth to the brand itself.
