Hispanic Heritage month is coming to a close. The month, lasting from Sept. 15 to Oct. 15, is held in commemoration of the histories, cultures, and contributions of American citizens who have blood lines that trace back to Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America.
In honor of Hispanic Heritage month, Papi, a brand based out of Miami with roots in latin culture, celebrated with the release of a Hispanic Heritage collection. The collection was designed using bright solids and spirited prints. There are 10 looks to the collection that incorporate the vivid colors of Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, Central America and South America.
ES Collection recently released a video that celebrated its history as a brand, a history that expands roughly 50 years. “This campaign makes us feel proud of our beginnings, which will push us to continue with our heritage,” Eduardo Suñer, ES Collection’s Product Manager, said. “This feeling is the only way to achieve the best product ever.”
