See Frida Kahlo’s Wardrobe

If you’ve seen Frida Kahlo’s artwork then you’re mostly likely familiar with her distinct, signature style. After she passed away in 1954, Kahlo’s wardrobe was locked away by husband Diego Rivera and declared it not to be opened again until 15 years after he died. Her closet was finally cracked open and photographer Ishiuchi Miyako was there to capture it all. Images of her classic cat-eye sunglasses, traditional Tehuana dresses, nail polish, prosthetic leg and even her full-body cast is now on display at London’s Michael Hoppen Gallery through 12 July.
