Sugar Skulls and All Things Frida

Detroit is all a-flutter about the new Diego River and Frida Kahlo in Detroit exhibit at the DIA.  Word is out that the exhibit is extraordinary, and everyone is getting inspired to explore the works of these two important artists and the culture that inspired them.  I call is Frida Fever, and it is everywhere.

Diego and Frida

I’m not immune to the buzz.  This season I’ve introduced several new motifs to the line, including new sugar skulls designed specifically for Divine Iguana as well as adaptations of the popular Mexican fortune telling cards, the Loteria.

 

La Luna and La Sirena from the Loteria Series

Most of these pieces are already sold, but there is a beautiful selection at Frida, the fabulous boutique inspired by Frida Kahlo located in Downtown Detroit, and I’m making more as quickly as my little fingers will allow.
