Frida Kahlo – Fashioning her Identity
On building a timeless legacy through her art, style and joyful self-expression
Adornment of the body is perhaps the most intimate form of art. Linking the self to the senses, the cultural, and the social while expressing personal and collective identities and all the ways in which they intersect. Frida Kahlo was a master of adornment. Throughout her life, she transformed her tragedy into beauty; her resilience manifested in her sartorial choices, as much as it did in her artwork. Using her body as a canvas, Kahlo constructed and reconstructed her identity. She took control, as a woman, an artist, an activist and a person with disabilities – existing without limitations. She expanded ideas of beauty, gender and women’s liberation. Her powerful take on style was as vital to her legacy as her artwork—evidence of a life which while complex, and sometimes painful was an artistic triumph.
This Frida Kahlo Collector’s Box is a colorful celebration of the artist’s vibrant life, work and story. With only 9999 numbered editions available, the bright yellow box features stylized graphics that recall Kahlo’s iconic floral headdress. Flowers and leaves grace the cover of the Limited Edition Notebook, along with a sunny yellow elastic closure and one of Kahlo’s most unforgettable and inspiring quotes: “I am my own muse”.
A thoughtful gift for followers of the artist, the plain Frida Kahlo Limited Edition Notebook inside includes themed stickers with images and well-known quotes in the expandable pocket. The paperband b-side features a floral garland to color and make. Gently rounded corners protect the hard cover against wear and tear, while the color-coordinated bookmark ribbon quickly takes you to the right page. Unmistakably Moleskine, the ‘In case of loss’ notice at the beginning is yours to personalize however you like.
Frida Kahlo can also be found on the equally warm and colorful endpapers, with a cameo-style profile framed with stylized leaves and flowers. This notebook is designed as a celebration of Kahlo’s vibrant style, unapologetic introspection and representation of indigenous Mexican folklore. Its bright colors stir us to remember the extraordinary legacy of an iconic artist, and maybe even inspire us to explore our own colorful reality.
