A Lunar New Year Edition inspired by painter Frida Kahlo's style, art and colourful dresses.
Who was Frida Kahlo? Artist Frida Kahlo was considered one of Mexico's greatest artists who began painting mostly self-portraits after she was severely injured in a bus accident. Kahlo later became politically active and married fellow communist artist Diego Rivera in 1929. (paragraph extracted from biography.com)
She is remembered for her self-portraits, pain and passion, and bold, vibrant colors. She is celebrated in Mexico for her attention to Mexican and indigenous culture and by feminists for her depiction of the female experience and form. Kahlo, who suffered from polio as a child, nearly died in a bus accident as a teenager. She suffered multiple fractures of her spine, collarbone and ribs, a shattered pelvis, broken foot and a dislocated shoulder. She began to focus heavily on painting while recovering in a body cast. In her lifetime, she had 30 operations. (paragraph extracted from fridakahlo.org)
With 2020 behind us, we hope we could use the same strength Frida had for the new year 2021. The Holiday 2021 Collection is an interpretation of a modern day Frida in our society. Faced with multiple challenges in life, modern everyday women are strong yet vulnerable. With this collection, we introduce fuss free one-piece dresses in bold colours and cheongsams with a zipper back detail to save time from buttoning; each piece is made from lightweight and easy to iron materials.
We hope to dress every woman up in the most authentic way effortlessly. We believe it is an internal feeling that exude through clothing choices and we design outfits to express that part in every Y21 woman.
