Come As You Are
One thing that we have always tried to cultivate at Rhone is a feeling of pride because we believe you should come as you are and be who you are because we love who you are, 365 days of the year.Shop
Who We Are
We are thrilled to feature three members of our retail team who work tirelessly to make our stores safe spaces. They ensure that everyone who comes through the doors is greeted with a warm welcome. We thought it only appropriate to feature these individuals as the subjects for our Pride Collection as we all work hard to create space for true inclusivity and diversity. Read on to hear their thoughts about our Pride collection.
For Ryan, it’s all about movement. Uprooting himself from his home state of Florida and coming to New York, Ryan has been on the move as long as he can remember. Whether he’s helping customers find the perfect fit, taking in a Yankees game, or dancing the night away, Ryan finds joy in movement. It is this kinetic excitement that makes him a magnet in our stores for his co-workers and customers alike.
“Pride is vital to our community as we celebrate those who have taken steps to be their truest self, encourage others who are still searching, and educate everyone that we all need a little more humanity.”View Product
When you walk into our retail store and you see the glowing smile of one Kaschee, you’ll know it’s one of those rare smiles that you rarely encounter. At once, it disarms you, builds you up, and welcomes you in. She is incredibly helpful and kind, sure, but she is also a keen listener and an understanding ally. Her time as a mother has taught her to always look for the good in everyone.
“Unity! Individuality! A moment in your life you can celebrate who you are, no matter what anyone thinks. Free to be me, Free to be you.”View Product
One word to describe David is tenacious. His relentless pursuit of goals is something to be admired and often we do. But what’s so admirable about it all, is that David somehow finds a seamless balance between this drive to win and the ability to deeply connect with people. He is a friend to all, one the helpers, and loves to welcome people into the retail spaces that he works so hard to create.
"Pride is a celebration of continued progress towards equality. It is a thank you to those who have fought for our rights before us. Pride is being able to hold your head up high, be proud of who you really are, and celebrate with whomever your heart tells you to love."View Product
Partnership with Mental Health America
One thing that we have always tried to cultivate at Rhone is a feeling of pride because we believe you should come as you are and be who you are because we love who you are, 365 days of the year.
The intention behind this unisex Rhone collection was to create pieces that both members of and allies to the LGBTQ+ community would be proud to wear.
As part of our partnership with Mental Health America, we will be making a $10,000 donation from the sales of our Pride Collection to support the development of LGBTQ+ focused resources and initiatives.
Individuals who identify as LGBTQ+ face unique challenges and are at particular risk for negative mental health outcomes. These negative outcomes often stem from experiencing shame, fear, discrimination, and adverse and traumatic events.
Mental Health America (MHA) recognizes the psychological impact that these experiences have on LGBTQ+ individuals, placing them at greater risk for developing several mental health conditions. MHA sees this impact first-hand in the number of LGBTQ+ youth using their online mental health resources. It is clear that this population is in particular need of support. MHA believes that it is imperative to use data to better understand and bring attention to the patterns of mental health disparities in LGBTQ+ populations, and to create appropriate resources to better support those in need.
