When I think of shopping in Bangalore, I usually think of high street or actual street shopping, never luxury. In comparison with a Bombay or Delhi, luxury shopping in Bangalore is pretty limited. Sure with UB City in the center of town we have our pick of the Burberrys and the Jimmy Choos, but sometimes if you’re looking for some slightly more off beat designers there isn’t much choice. Fervour, a multi designer luxury store on Vittal Mallya road is a fresh change to the Bangalore sartorial scene.
I don’t do much (read any) luxury shopping- TBH I can’t afford it (though that doesn’t stop me from lusting after Dior’s So Real and now Abstract sunglasses all the freakin time). So when Fervour invited me to their store for some champagne, French food and an afternoon of styling some of the designer wear they have at their store I was intrigued! What followed was the adult version of dress up- the heels were higher and the clothes fancier. Duh.
For women they had an extensive collection of DSQUARED2 along with a limited but lovely collection of Paul and Joe amongst other designers. My favourites (apart from what I styled) were definitely the kimono style sweatshirts by DSQUARED2 and adorable playsuits by Paul and Joe.
After much humming and hawing I settled on a a beautiful winter coat from DSQUARED2 which had me dreaming of some cold weather. To add a little bit of shape to an otherwise bulky look i added a belt from ICEBERG and then hopped onto the fringe trend with a clutch, again from DSQUARED2.
Until next time,
