Frida Kahlo's sunglasses
An exhibition after almost 50 years of her death threw open the doors of her wardrobe for the world to see, and surprisingly, the collection included a pair of sunglasses.
This is bit of a surprise because none of the artist’s portraits or her existing photographs show her as wearing these shades, yet the pair – a contemporary and chic cat-eye frame – is very much symbolic of Kahlo’s fashion-forwardness.
Also, the ultra-feminine design of the shades seems to reflect the feminist that she was.
