This T-Shirt Line Celebrates The Diversity Of Latinx Heritage In America
·2 mins read
Despite the fact that our universal dress code of late has been "perma-casual," what we choose to put on our bodies will never not be important — as an outward expression of our feelings, our personalities, and, ultimately, the way we see ourselves.
This connection between identity and our fashion choices is at the heart of Kohl's latest launch, a collection of T-shirts that celebrates the diversity of Latinx experiences in America. (It's no coincidence that this drop coincides with Hispanic Heritage Month, which runs through October 15.) "We all come from different countries," says Gabriela Riveros, a 26-year-old Paraguayan-American and lead designer of the collection. "We wanted to approach this project acknowledging that everyone comes from different backgrounds, we're a bunch of different races and ethnicities."
Ahead, see select styles from the range and learn more about how it came to be — and how, by wearing it, you can "feel strong, beautiful, and...proud of where [you] come from and what [you] live through," as Riveros puts it.
Like what you see? How about some more R29 goodness, right here?
Kathy Ireland rose to fame as a supermodel in the 1980s and 1990s. She’s best known for appearing in 13 consecutive Sports Illustrated swimsuit issues.

Everyone wants to be represented and I think that’s important.” She also says that old job description of “shut up and pose” is not acceptable anymore. She encourages women to use their voices. “Do not let anyone or your circumstances dismiss you.”
Olivia Mancuso’s wedding ceremony was truly stunning — a sight to behold in more ways than one. Olivia shared footage of the bizarre twist with her TikTok followers in honor of her one-year anniversary with her husband. Olivia and her husband, Fred, exchange glances — a silent communication that all married couples should master, honestly — and make it perfectly that this is not going according to plan.
