Kids of Immigrants is about firsts: being the first person in your family to go to college, being the first to open a business, and all the experiences that come from being a first-generation American. Founded by Daniel Buezo and Weleh Dennis, the Los Angeles-based clothing line reclaims the pride of the immigrant experience, taking the belittling moments from structural and racial inequality and meeting them headfirst with love and support.
The designs are warm and inviting — "Anything Is Possible" written in take-out style on the back of a shirt, "Support Your Friends" brightly emblazoned on a hoodie. "Those roots, that culture, those things that are embedded into your blood is something to be proud of," says Buezo in a Kids of Immigrants video. And he's not wrong.
The latest collection also features maker of dreamy pop and daughter of a Honduran immigrant Empress Of, looking angelic near stacks of Flamin' Hot Cheetos, as seen above. See more from Kids of Immigrants below and on its webstore.
