Shop from La Sosta for this season's wardrobe upgrade
Bringing a mix of designs from more than 20 designers on board is the recently unveiled online portal, La Sosta. Founded by Nikita Vij, it provides a one-stop shop for ready-to-wear collections in a range of bright colours. “We are in talks to launch six to eight designers in the coming months,” says the 27-year-old fashion entrepreneur, who shuttles between Delhi and Mumbai. Nikita plans to add a few Hyderabadi designers soon. “We chose the name La Sosta because it means ‘The stopover’ in Italian, which is quite apt,” she says. Though the e-portal is presently limited to apparels, Nikita plans to include an accessory and a home décor section soon. One look at the website shows that the collection offers wearable designer ensembles. However, you would wish that the co-ordinates and athleisure sections were stocked better as these trends have several takers presently. A few designers on their portal are:
