Shahpur Jat has a high number of independent and stylish boutiques, and we just went on a look-see to pick our favourites.

Les Parisiennes

A French concept store, Les Parisiennes stocks dresses, coats, scarves and dressy tops. The clothes are simple but chic, contemporary and yet with a touch of vintage nostalgia. They also have accessories, homeware and selected menswear.

For eclectic jewellery from a variety of designs across price points, Nimai is your best bet. Quaint, warm and full of promise, browse their space for handcrafted and one-of-a-kind pieces. The collection constantly keeps changing, so you’ll never spot your picks on another person. Side-step that faux pas in style {they are online now, too}.

A spacious and elegant space, AntarDESI is for all the men in the house, specifically the ones with big bucks. They carry couture for men, from minimal blazers and jackets to three-piece suits and full-blown Indian ensembles. You can also find pocket squares, cravats, juttis and cuff links. Bespoke services are also on the table; just ask them.

Gentlemen, head on over to Kardo for variety that’s mind-boggling, with the finest material and hand-finished detail that make your choice of shirts and trousers stand out. They have your basic block colours, stripes and checks, but also subtle Ikat prints and slightly out-there prints. You’ll find ensembles fit for any occasion, and if not, they’re more than willing to tailor a piece for you.

Olivia Dar Accessories

For accessories that carry the pieces of the globe with them, Olivia Dar should be your go-to. The designer’s label is influenced by her time in Paris and her travels in India, and the pieces are a beautiful amalgamation of both; bright, intricate yet understated. Let your accessories do the talking.

Bhaavya Bhatnagar

You can find structured separates and chic work wear that’ll translate seamlessly to evening wear and Indian ensembles, lasting you long past the wedding season. Bhaavya Bhatnagar’s strong suite is her jackets, and she takes inspiration from the 18th century aesthetic, meaning that the silhouettes are slightly exaggerated and edgy. This is statement wear all the way, ladies.

Bhumika Grover

Turn to Bhumika Grover for all your Indian and bridal apparel needs. She carries a selection of fairly understated Indian wear as well as pieces that are high on embellishments {bling bling}. They might be willing to alter one of their designs as per your requirements, but for the most part, custom wear is not high on their list of services.

#LBBTip: Make an appointment.

Second Floor Studio

You’ll find everything from wall-to-wall art pieces to smaller home-decor pieces {such as cushions, linens and ceramic plates} at Second Floor Studio. Consider it candy-land for those with eccentric, out-of-the-box taste, and go procure yourself a curio or two.

Small and rustic, Lila does traditional materials {all natural} and prints in contemporary silhouettes. They have a mix of shirts, pants, kurtas, scarves and jackets with lively prints, while the others have materials {such as silk} that add all the quiet sophistication needed.


We absolutely love the Gujrati and Rajasthani inspirations on their jackets, kurtas, lehengas and sarees. The owner is available at the store, and is usually quite happy to help you pick. The ensembles aren’t as expensive as the others, and you’ are sure to find some stunning pieces; the Kutchi artwork is especially dazzling.

Doing some of the most eccentric prints inspired from nature and florals, we love the place for their white shirts. Coming in variants of cotton and mulmul, their pieces are always asymmetrical, and are just the thing if you’re looking for something out of the ordinary. We also find their jewellery to be very industrial and reminiscent of metallurgy workshops, but only much more gorgeous.
