If you follow Anand Ahuja on Instagram, you’ll know that he’s been carrying around that newly-wed blush + shoes to match from Delhi to Tokyo via London.

And now that he can officially call Bombay home, he’s bringing his trousseau in tow.  At the end of this month, Anand will be here to unpack his sneaker brand, Veg Non Veg and fashion label Bhane at a single 3,000 square feet store space in Bandra. Don’t know about either? Koi nai. Come to the launch and have a laddoo, okay?

Stacked above another Delhi sweet dish – Affinity Salon – Bhane and Veg Non Veg will turn Ambedkar Road’s two-storey building no 317 into a mini hipster haven. We’re not saying Bandra needs any more hipsters, but we’re still pretty kicked about Veg Non Veg, a store that stocks sneakers from Nike, Fila, Adidas, Puma, Asics Tiger. (FYI: a more unusual collection + Ranbir’s stylists hang at Super Kicks in the same neighbourhood.) While you wait for this Motichoor + Mindblower launch, you can also browse their online footwear store and see our picks here, here and here.

Meanwhile, settling on the other side of the store is big bhabhi Bhane, a clothing label that sells basics for men and women (nice for men’s tees and ladies’ skater pants). While our editors find Bhane’s dresses rather sacky, we’re excited about their Mumbai-only capsule collection that promises more “office-like” silhouettes in August. And then in September, is when “Bhane 2.0 will be launched”.

Quite kicked.

Getting there: Veg Non Veg & Bhane at level one, building number 371, Ambedkar Road, Bandra (W). Opens end of July.
