Sanctuary offers some great factory reject from high street brands at very reasonable prices — it’s like a more relaxed version of street shopping where you can find clothing, accessories, home decor and even furniture!
Armani, Ralph Lauren, FCUK: Sanctuary Is Our Go-To Store For Factory Reject Clothing
If you’re a shopaholic like I am and haven’t yet been to Sanctuary, you’re in for a treat! Located right next to Safina Plaza, Sanctuary is a shopper’s paradise! They mostly sell factory reject clothing for men, women and kids, quirky home decor, knickknacks, as well as a small selection of body care products and even antique furniture. It’s a pretty large, segmented store so it’s easy to figure out where you can find what. As far as we could tell, the high street brands seemed authentic, but we’re not so sure about the luxury brands.
Shop 'Til You Drop
The women’s western selection included cute rompers from Abercrombie & Fitch, lovely spring-time dresses from the likes of Jennyfer and Old Navy, and even gorgeous beaded suede purses from Pull & Bear with prices as low as INR 600. Definitely check out their range of leather jackets — you can find lovey pieces from brands like Armani Exchange, FCUK, Massimo Dutti and plenty more, and in different sizes, too! The men’s section was a little surprising — from polo shirts by Ralph Lauren to formal shirts by Armani, it was a brand extravaganza! Check out the men’s leather jackets and shoes, too! They also had some snazzy wallets and an adorable selection of bow ties. Sanctuary also has a small selection of kid’s clothing — from cute, colourful sun dresses to smart polo tops, it’s a quick browse and you’re sure to find something for your little one.
All The Extras
Aside from clothing, we loved Sanctuary’s selection of home decor — from small steel sculptures to printed pillow cases, it’s a kitsch lover’s heaven! They even have some cute stools covered with comic strips, and framed old Hollywood and Bollywood posters you can’t miss out on. The personal care products seemed intriguing, but aside from the usual handmade soaps and shampoo alternatives, nothing really stood out. In the courtyard, they keep some lovely antique furniture pieces — sure, they’re a bit pricey and we don’t know if they really are vintage, but if you’re looking for a charming bedroom side table or even a statement cabinet piece for your living room these are really pretty.
Check out the store just outside Sanctuary for their clearance prices that are up to 70 per cent! They also have a new cafe, the third outlet of Cafe Marzipan, if you want a quick drink to refresh yourself and rest your feet.
