Following on from the success of the first Frida Kahlo licensed product launch earlier this year, House of Disaster is launching its second accessories collection inspired by the iconic artist and her work.

The new range covers a variety of giftable items, including on-trend water bottles, socks, scarves and a lightbox, alongside an updated line of core accessories.

“We have been so pleased with the initial reaction to our Frida Kahlo licensed collection released for S/S 2019 we have worked on adding new pieces and categories for the second half of 2019,” says Neil Gauckwin, General Manager of House of Disaster.

“We love the design graphics of House of Disaster,” adds Maria Strid, owner of Art Ask Agency, the Barcelona-based licensing agent of the artist’s estate. 

“The freedom to get creative and propose distinctive graphics for licensed products is one of the many plus points of the Frida Kahlo license.”

House of Disaster will be one of a number of Frida Kahlo licensees exhibiting fresh products at trade shows across Europe in the new year, including Spring Fair, Maison & Objet, Ambiente and Intergift.
