No Borders, a cosy new vintage shop, opens in designer James Ferreira's 200-year-old home
In one of Mumbai’s jam-packed Girgaon lanes, a nondescript turn leads to an older, more restful Bombay. Over the last week, this well-preserved Portuguese hamlet has drawn shoppers from far corners of the city, including a visit from “The Sartorialist" Scott Schuman. Kotachiwadi, the permanent address of Kanika Karvinkop’s travelling No Borders shop, has no clear signage, but any reclining figure on one of the several open balconies will gladly point you to its wooden doors, also the home of the area’s most famous resident—designer James Ferreira. The upper storey of his 200-year-old heritage home now accommodates this charming new vintage store that aims to “build diversity in fashion, art and design".
