A loose, comfortable, yet dreamy and whimsical item that comes in every size is hard to come by – as usually oversized items have a minimal or sporty feel. Layered to everyone’s delight and puffy sleeves for days, the Frida is as girly dreamy chic as it is lightweight and wearable in any situation.
Product fit details
- Sonia is wearing S and her height is 1.69m
- Standard length from waistline to hem is 55cms
- The fabric is a linen/cotton mix, which means it is not stretchy, but gets softer with every wash
- The dress itself is oversized & features a gather at the top, so you can tie it as loose or tight as you would like around the shoulders (so no elastic that digs in, nor a certain standard width)
Psst, wanna know who Frida is?
While Mexican artist Frida Kahlo was working at a time before the term ‘feminist art’ existed, her paintings, using a naive folk art style, explored questions of identity, gender, class, race and post-colonialism in Mexican society.
Kahlo is mostly known for her deeply personal self-portraits, and she often translated her own life experiences onto the canvas. Her work is retrospectively seen as feminist because the artist made it legitimate for women to outwardly display their pains, frustrations and passions, and therefore made steps towards making sense of and understanding them. Her conviction and raw talent, has meant she’s become a role model for many.
