I’m always on the lookout for new e-commerce retail marketplaces, either to buy for myself, or to buy as gifts for friends and family. I love finding smaller online companies or supporting local businesses with unique pieces and positive missions. I recently stumbled upon Pasonga. Pasonga is an e-commerce startup focusing on representing emerging designers from all around the world and their mission is “Wear the Difference”. The company sells bathing suits, clothes, bags, shoes and accessories. There is a small selection of items to buy, but everything is beautiful, vibrant and full of character. The company’s mission statement is really inspiring. I love how Pasonga’s e-commerce platform was built to empower emerging designers. Some of my favorite pieces that I saw on Pasonga’s website were:
- Bolero Cartagena: Sexy and short, hand-embroidered Bolero detailed in yellow, with metallic pieces at the edges. This cropped top would be so cute with white skinny jeans and a tank top in the summer.
- Halter Pink Bikini: Unique pink and aquamarine halter bikini with mesh details and adjustable crossed back straps. A must have high-neck style in an intricate knit, bikini for summer. How perfect is this bathing suit? I’m going to Miami in May for my future sister-in-law’s bachelorette party and this bathing suit would just be perfect!
- The Zinacatan Clutch: Beautiful crafted clutch handbag from Zinacatan’s culture in Mexico. This unique piece is inspired by the outfit of Zinacantan’s typical woman, named “moxibal.” I’m pretty much obsessed with this clutch. It is so unique and I love the colors. With the warm weather just around the corner, this would the perfect clutch for the upcoming spring and summer seasons.
Let me know what you think of all the pieces on Pasonga! Or, if you’ve found other e-commerce retail sites supporting emerging designers let me know. I’d love to check it out! Have a great day!
