Frida Kahlo x Vans Vault Collection

Consistent muse and renowned Mexican artist Frida Kahlo is one of the few to make lasting impressions on this generation of self love; with her pieces, both of her likeness and others, catching waves decades after their conception, it’s only fitting to give the late creative her own spring of collaborative works. Sprawled heavy-handedly across even fast fashion, Anaheim-based imprint Vans is set to execute with more thoughtful expression as silhouettes from their arsenal of icons don some of the most famous of Kahlo’s works. The Slip-On features her most definitive of self-portraits, the Authentic freshens up in the all-over “watermelon” mosaic, and the Sk8-Hi arrives the most subdued as it sports “Las Dos Fridas” across its profile.
