On another note…
The renown Vault by Vans series which has previously released collections inspired on near-extinct animals by Ralph Steadman, and a military-inspired line by Japanese designer Taka Hayashi, has just dropped its latest footwear honoring Mexican artist Frida Kahlo..
A truly unique collection, one that brings a selection of Kahlo’s painting to life.. Kahlo’s works were best known for her self-portraits,others were inspired by the nature and culture of Mexico..
The collection consists of 3 sneakers..
Since her death in 1954, the Mexican painter has become a pop culture icon and a model for feminist ideologies.
Kahlo’s artwork and her image have been featured in museums around the world and on jewelry and clothing. Last year, Mattel launched a Frida Kahlo Barbie doll as part of a batch of dolls based on historical figures.
