Outhouse Jewellery in Mumbai
After setting up flagship stores in Delhi and Bangalore, Outhouse jewelry finally made its way to Mumbai last month. The store’s architecture has heavy colonial influences and features accents in the brand’s signature salmon pink and grey combination, along with brass fixtures. The Mumbai outpost will have a special ‘Outhouse Couture Room’ too, a private space where customers can indulge in one-on-one interactions with the designers and avail bespoke services.

Not So Serious by Pallavi Mohan’s Delhi store
Designer Pallavi Mohan launched the Not So Serious’ flagship store in Delhi on the occasion of her label’s 10th anniversary. Mohan wanted the store to welcome customers with the same warmth and ease as her home. Keeping this in mind, the store is designed to feel like a house, instead of a retail space, with open verandahs, gardens and cozy nooks. The décor is inspired by the label’s latest collection that featured heavy influences from ‘Alice in The Wonderland’. So don’t be surprised if you spot a framed looking glass or eccentric hares around the space.

Designer Masaba Gupta set up a pop-up store in Delhi earlier this month at the Select CITYWALK mall in Saket. The 3-month long pop-up features the designer’s summer 2017 collection, along with her special denim line.

Jade’s new Mumbai destination
The bridal couture label launched a new store in Mumbai to celebrate their 10th anniversary. Designed personally by co-founder Monica Shah, Jade’s new South Bombay store is a reflection of the label’s unique mix of traditional and modern elements. Heritage artifacts, each with a unique story of their own, are spread across the store as installations, so that it gives the illusion of walking through an art gallery. The label also launched a new collection, titled ‘Aurum’, to celebrate the milestone along with the store launch. The store will house all of Jade’s varied lines, including the ‘appointment only’ Signature Bridal Heirlooms Atelier.
