from Paris to Mexico...
Can you hear the sound of the Mariachi and see their sombreros
dancing on the tops of their heads in the distance?
That’s right, this season we’re off to Mexico and taking inspiration
from its energy, colours, folklore and sunshine!
So who is Frida Kahlo? Frida Kahlo, our muse this season, was a Mexican artist born in 1907. She had a difficult childhood as she was struck down by illness and was a victim of an accident that left her bedbound. That’s when she taught herself to paint and did her first self-portraits.
She met the love of her life Diego Rivera and married him when she was 22. They shared a passion for art and their relationship was fiery but enriching.
This driven, anti-conformist, feminist and feminine woman has inspired us and takes us on a journey through her country.
An adventure in 6 stages
Frida Kahlo is taking us on a journey around her homeland.
Let’s join her to explore local crafts, lush nature, myriad landscapes and endless beaches...
She opens up and reflects on her relationship with the painter Diego Rivera. Let’s share in her love for colours and textiles.
She addresses the battles she went through in her lifetime be it against illness or for the evolution of women and mentalities.
Sometimes she leads us, sometimes she leaves us, over the course of a stage or stop.
te quiero mucho*
Frida Kahlo opens up to us and talks about her insane love to Diego Riviera.
An inspiring love story from turbulent times in their relationship to their common passion for art.
under the Maya sun
Here comes Soleil, the new French lace of the season. Maya yellow, navy blue, coral…
Inspired by the colors of the sun Frida Kahlo creates vibrant shades.
in the heart of a luxuriant nature
Frida Kahlo opens us the doors of Casa Azùl garden.
It was her harbor of peace, a place where she found strength.
viva la vida in Acapulco*
Frida Kahlo lets go of our hand for a while and invites us to explore the beaches of her country.
Swimming the breaststroke or butterfly, tanning or sipping a lemon cocktail: we slip into our Impala swimsuit and "viva la vida*"!
sundown at Playa del Carmen
The endless ocean, the sun goes down until the light totally disappears!
We spend a little time on this beach before leaving with Frida Kahlo for the end of our journey.
the aras of Frida Kahlo®
We're finishing our journey in Mexico with our muse.
She shows us her paintings and in particular her self portait "my parrots and I", where she painted herself surrounded by her aras.
