The collection includes three silhouettes, each with a different piece Kahlo’s most influential artworks. The shoes aim to capture a piece of Kahlo’s style that is universally recognisable, celebrating her Mexican heritage and femininity in all its forms. Kahlo’s art remains influential today, inspiring biopics, biographies and exhibitions that explore the woman behind the striking portraits.
