Bombay Perfumery: Take a whiff of Bombay Perfumery, India's coolest perfume brand that mixes Indian inspiration with contemporary design. Fragrances have notes of chai and lemon grass, mogra and nutmeg and one is even inspired by Bombay's Juhu beach. These are great for personal spritzes, but also make for nice gifts, especially when you're travelling abroad.
JODI: Ex-Elle India magazine stylists Karuna Laungani and Gauri Verma prove that print is not dead. Their lifestyle label JODI, sells women’s clothes and stationery in block prints inspired by traditional Indian arts and crafts. Visit jodilife.com to shop airy dresses and skirts, denim totes and leather slides, and our favourite - paper, bookmarks and coasters.
Lovebirds: This contemporary women’s wear label aims to strike a balance between efficiency and creativity. We long to slip into their minimal designs, each an architectural ace and inspired by geometric details. Shop their collections for poppy red flared shirts, electric blue pleated dresses, and milky white sheaths.
Nappa Dori: We have zero resistance against the intricate, carefully-crafted and deliciously clever leather bags, belts and other bric-a-brac at Nappa Dori, one of the coolest design labels to come out of India in the last few years. Browse online or better yet, stop by one of the lovely stores for some serious eye-candy and a great cup of coffee at Cafe Dori. Don't even get us started on the yummy stationery; check out their new paper weights.
My Baby Babbles: What started out as a design studio creating baby photo books, quickly grew into an online store that sells everything your child’s heart will desire – clothes, stationery, bed and bath products, educational games, accessories, room décor. But what its three founders are really proud of is their ability to customise these products at the click of a button. You may not have a baby, but you should know that this is also a great place to buy baby shower stash for all your friends who are expecting (great gifts). Shop here. PS: They're having an annual blow out sale from Sep 20 to 29 with up to 25% off.
Taxi Fabric: In the Taxi Fabric online shop, totes, cushions, laptop sleeves and un-stitched fabric reflect the designs they once used to upholster city taxis. In their first capsule, elements of two taxi stories are excerpted to create little motifs that stand on their own (and don’t need a canvas larger than your floor cushion), along with design extras: tassels behind the cushions, stitching on a sleeve, the length of straps on the totes.
Visit the Taxi Fabric store at www.taxifabric.in, follow them on Instagram here, a tote bag for Rs 1,500.
