More than Fashion Trends

Frida Kahlo And Diego Rivera are above and beyond any empty representations or appropriations by hipsters, "boho-chic" pretenders, superficial fashionistas, and clueless trend-followers.

Here they are, in all their Marxist splendour, marching in Mexico City with the Revolutionary Union of Technical Workers, Painters and Sculptors on May 1, 1929.
