We have already talked about how much we were influenced by various cultures to create the Folkcolor collection. Women like Iris Apfel and Frida Kahlo were our muses to bring to life many of our pieces.
For example, the Gaia necklaces
, Iris Apfel was the protagonist. Her unique and eclectic style dazzle us. This 91 years old -lady is known for breaking the stereotypes imposed by the fashion industry. The way she complements colors and textures buying clothes from flea markets to bigger designers, it’s impressive. Like us, Ms. Apfel believes that the key to personal style is to use accessories, as these can change the outfit completely and the image of a person.
On the other hand, our Frida Earrings
, are inspired by the famous Mexican painter Frida Kahlo, characterized by being an independent woman, who also is known in the fashion world for her original, bold and fearless style. We could not resist taking inspiration from her indigenous ethnic aesthetic, her flashy outfits and bright colors, in addition to its opulence accessories that made a big impact.
But more than anything, both of our muses transmitted us strength, empowerment, independence and great eye to detail. Qualities of a whole #NenaEla
