Mid morning coffe is quite an important part of our day here at Red Door HQ, we use it as a time to catch up and plan the week ahead…. whatever the day of the week! Today’s meeting is a proper tiger coffee break, music wise and new product wise! Yesterday’s arrival of Tiger and Lion cushions by Zixiao has led to much a mention of Katy Perry‘s song ROAR (which is the music we are tapping our toes to just now). It’s the video that accompnies this pop anthem that we keep pulling back to when looking at the new range of animal face cushions and floral brooches in from illlustrator Zixiao. Behind the eye of the tiger, is there a little nod to truly inspirational artist, Freida Kahlo?
Kahlo created her distinctively female visual language, which has influenced feminism and carried with it the empowerment of generations woman throug the 20th centuary and beyond. Including references to many animals native to her home in Mexico and bright floral headresses.
Freida Kalho (above Katy Perry) is by Red Door artist And Smile, and is her tribute to the artist. So if your having a ROAR on the dance floor this weekend, or on your couch at home, or just on your coffee break, then think of Freida too.
