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.
With its vibrant cover and bright pink elastic closure, this Frida Kahlo Limited Edition Notebook is bursting with colorful creativity. Eye-catching flowers and leaves decorate the cover above an instantly-recognizable image representing Frida Kahlo and her distinctive floral headdress. “Viva la vida” is splashed across the cover – one of Kahlo’s most iconic and life-affirming quotes and the name given to her final work of art.
A thoughtful gift for fans of the artist, this ruled Frida Kahlo Limited Edition Notebook 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. Discreetly rounded corners protect the hard cover against wear and tear, while the matching bookmark ribbon takes you to the correct page every time. Unmistakably Moleskine, the ‘In case of loss’ notice at the start is yours to customize however you prefer.
Frida Kahlo also graces the equally colorful yellow endpapers inside, 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 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.
