NEW YORK — Thalía Sodi, the chanteuse behind the single, “I Want You,” also wants to dress you. The pop star (and wife of music mogul Tommy Mottola) will be a major presence in Kmart stores across the country for back-to-school with her new line of apparel, accessories and home products, which will be unveiled at a Miami store today. Thalía marks Kmart’s first foray into the expanding Latino market as it launches more proprietary lifestyle collections to rejuvenate its business.
