NEW YORK — Christian Cota, who is presenting his spring collection today, is joining the growing list of young designers branching out into second lines.
On Thursday, Cota will unveil Agua Cota — a more casual alternative to his main collection at contemporary price points. The idea to start the offshoot came to him about a year ago, when customers began to ask him for clothes suitable for casual occasions such as the beach. Cota decided to create a line that was travel-friendly and made of fabrics that could be easily packed, from linen to jersey, silk gauze and bamboo jersey.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
