T is the soul behind T Playa, her eponymous shop on San Juan’s Calle Loiza, which brims with her own line of eco-conscious clothing, independent global artisans and “Found and Collected by T,” an ever-changing array of vintage bags and one-of-a-kind finds. A treasure trove of hand-selected items, now her collections are online for the world to share in her discovery. As the former fashion editor of Allure magazine, it’s no wonder walking into T’s world is like walking into your best friend’s perfectly curated closet.
“Former Allure fashion editor Tanamá Besosa Castillo moved back home to Puerto Rico after stints in New York and Paris to open T Playa, inspired by her love of the ocean. Perusing the narrow shop feels like a romp through your chicest friend’s walk-in closet—walls are lined with racks of gauzy caftans, chunky charm necklaces dangling with seashells, and an unparalleled collection of new and vintage straw bags and hats.” — Fortune Magazine
“T Playa is run by a woman who used to be an editor at Allure magazine. She sells beautiful resort clothing and beachwear…She has a completely different style from everyone around her.” — New York Magazine
