A New York–Made Antidote to Fast Fashion

There’s an ease and accessibility associated with shopping fast fashion, but the trendy pieces you were initially so anxious to buy tend to lose their flair by the next season; by the tenth wash, the silhouettes have gone slack and the fabric is just a shell of what it used to be. But graduating from fast fashion doesn’t have to mean an immediate jump into the world of the Bergdorf. Enter new contemporary brand Tosia.

Tosia was founded by Ralph Lauren and J.Crew Collection design alum Sara Hankin. Produced in New York, each piece is made with high-quality materials and a distinct city flavor — the shapes are modern with unexpected details, like a metallic-blue mini-dress with playful shoulder slits, or an oxblood choker-collared jumpsuit. Starting today, you can shop the fall/winter collection on the label’s newly minted e-commerce site.
