The Frida Kahlo Corporation has partnered with the British designer Jan Constantine and Retro Peepers for new Frida Kahlo licensed products.

In a slate of deals secured by the Barcelona-based Art Ask Agency, Jan Constantine has signed up to produce a hand embroidered licensed Frida Kahlo cushion.

It joins the designer’s range of home interior products, a line that is distributed in stores such as Harrods, Selfridges, Liberty and Fortnum and Mason.

Meanwhile, Retro Peepers is launching a pair of officially licensed sunglasses based on those work by the seminal Mexican artist. The launch will coincide with the V&A’s much anticipated exhibition: Frida Kahlo – Making Her Self Up.

Each pair will be sold with a brightly coloured floral folding case and polishing cloth, also inspired by the artist’s work and Mexican heritage.

Products are available this month at Anthropologie in the UK and Harvey Nichols.

“Both of these items are in the higher end price bracket at over £140 each,” said Maria Strid, Art Ask Agency.

“With the level of work, craftsmanship and design involved, they are very much value for money. Heirlooms of the future.”
