In Focus: Artful Accessories Inspired by Frida Kahlo

I paint flowers so that they will not die. - Frida Kahlo
Immortalize inimitable painter Frida Kahlo (Mexico, 1907–1954) with our new line of accessories inspired by and as bold and brilliant as the artist herself.

Frida Kahlo Floral Umbrella/Frida Kahlo Floral Print Scarf

An homage to Kahlo's folk art style, our Frida Kahlo Floral Umbrella and Frida Kahlo Jungle Print Scarf celebrate the vibrant colors of plant and animal life in the jungle.

 Frida Kahlo Rose Shawl

Roses were a common motif in Kahlo's early painting and provided a precursor to her profoundly symbolic work to follow. Wrap yourself in the voluminous vibrancy of our Frida Kahlo Rose Shawl and sartorially reflect this stylistic tendency.

Finally, artfully accessorize with our Frida Kahlo Eyeglass Case with Cloth. Inspired by Kahlo's self-portraiture, this item honors the genre for which the incomparble artist was most renowned. 

Choose one or choose all and celebrate the artist's singular style.
