Women's History Month // Frida Kahlo

Released in March, during Women's history month, The ELLE collection is inspired by strong women who impacted our society and made a change in our culture.
All over the world, women have been fighting for our rights and equality and sacrificed for generations to come.

Named after a few of these women, this collection is an ode to their strength.

We hope each piece will adorn you and make you feel beautiful throughout your day and to remind you about your strength and how you can influence big changes in your lives.

Frida Kahlo

“I am my own muse. I am the subject I know best. The subject I want to better.”

Frida Kahlo de Rivera was born Magdalena Carmen Frida Kahlo y Calderón on July 6, 1907. Inspired by popular Mexican culture, she used a lot of native folk styles in her portraits and self-portaits. I am really inspired by Frida's life because she made a huge impact with her art, addressing political issues in her country as well as more personal struggles such as pain, miscarriage, and her injuries.
She fought with her gifts and skills and unique story.


pictured above are our new Frida earrings.
These were the first design of the new collection and Frida was the obvious namesake. As I was preparing for my upcoming trip to Mexico, I was inspired by the diverse architecture and motifs and the earrings were born out of that.
They are bold and meant to stand out, like our muse Frida.
