Brand: Frida Kahlo
Details: Own your own signature Frida Kahlo shoulder handbag. Born on July 6th, 1907, in Coyoacan, Mexico, Frida Kahlo's life evolved during a historic time in Mexico when the struggle for social change began to gain significance. The Mexican Revolution began when Frida was three years old in 1910; Frida always gave the year of her birth as 1910 in order for people to associate her directly with the revolution. From her early childhood, Frida started to show great personality and devotion to life by overcoming a severe case of polio. She fought for her life and for her emotional well-being, as she had to continue her life with the physical effects from the disease. On September 17, 1925, Frida was traveling on a bus when it crashed into a tramcar. This catastrophic event severely affected Frida's life, and it was the second time she almost died. Frida's road to physical recuperation was not an easy one, leaving her to spend several months with limited mobility as she learned to cope with the boredom of the recovery process. This led her to start painting self-portraits with the water colors of her father, Guillermo Kahlo.
