Shopping Plans In CP? These Cool Local Brands Will Have You Covered
Connaught Place is easily one of our favourite places to hang out in the city. With plenty of options to shop, and even more to cool off at later, it's the perfect place to spend a chill day in. However, there are lots of great stores that go unnoticed in the shadow of the bring brands they're surrounded with.
If you're looking to shop from some lesser known stores in CP, here's a list for you.
Vanson is a store in block A, that does really pretty footwear for both men and women. They have great leather formal shoes for men, and for women they store everything from casual shoes, to juttis and heels, too.
It's a really tiny store in the first block, right next to a magazine shop (that also has a small attar collection). They always have the prettiest dupattas and stoles with intricate meenakari designs on them. They also have a few slings and totes that have a traditional touch to them.
Silver Point has all your basic silver jewellery needs covered. From silver bands, and rings with semi-precious stones to silver earrings and hoops, they have a good enough collection for when you're looking for something in general. However, if you have more specific stuff in mind, you might not find exactly what you're looking for.
If you're looking to buy fragrances of international brands, this store might just have what you're looking for. From Tommy Hilfiger, to Davidoff, they stock quite a few popular brands in their store.
No matter how many Steve Maddens and Charles & Keiths of the world pop up, Balujas will always be the store that parents drag their kids to when they need new shoes. They have a huge collection, and pretty much everyone who walks in, walks out with something they like. They also have lots of deals and offers going on quite often, making it a one-stop shop for when you need to buy affordable and good quality footwear.
Suti Cotton Apparels
This store is a really great option for casual ethnic wear, and simple ethnic work wear. They have cotton palazzos and dupattas as well, and everything in the store is priced quite reasonably.
Kip & Kalf
I highly recommend this place for pretty cotton and/or embroidered kurtas. They have lots of pieces of chikankari kurtas (not the hand-embroidered kind, I'm afraid), pretty dupattas and even airy palazzos and pants.
They have a lot of variety in footwear for both men and women. From casual and formal flats, to party-wear heels and leather shoes, you'll definitely find something suited to your taste here.
The store is great if you're looking to buy ethnic wear. They deal in Kashmiri shawls, cotton suits, traditional saris, and casual and semi-formal stoles that can be used for daily wear.
This place is great for women's ethnic wear. From long and flowy cotton kurtas to lehngas and saris, they have pretty much everything you might need at any point. The collection is really beautiful and tasteful too.
If you're the kind of person everyone aspires to be, which roughly translates to someone who can wear (and pull-off) saris on a daily basis, give this store a go. From cotton saris to heavier, silk ones- they've got options across various price ranges and designs.
Looking for casual kurtas but bored of the usual designs? Head to this CP store. It's huge, and they have so many options. The clothes they stock are so summer-friendly and flowy, and in pretty ikat and tie-dye patterns, you'll fall in love with them for sure.
You'll find pretty, colourful and basic kolhapuris and formal leather shoes for men here for a bargain.
This store does all leather everything. From shoes and boots, to bags and wallets, you'll find a ton of great stuff here. But since it's a bit tiny, you might not find a crazy amount of variety here.
