Of late, my weekends pass by in tiny boutiques, feeling that fabric before buying it, and spending hours in my favourite stores. As you can tell, I am currently making the most of my fashion girl life after the haunting draught that 2020 has been. All the stay-at-home time in the past year and a half has made me realise the importance of little things that I had been taking for granted. The pleasures of offline shopping surely find a top spot on that list. After all, isn’t there a unique joy to it? Surely, it is called ‘retail therapy’ for a reason! Well, today I am here to share the joy and tell you about some cool, new stores in Delhi that will help you with a unique shopping experience. Read on:
Known for its innovative use of fabric that is no short of textile origami, Antar Agni has finally launched a flagship retail store in Delhi’s Lado Sarai. It is Antar Agni’s very first store and just like their avant-garde silhouettes, it has been designed with the most unique details and the customer experience in mind. The store reflects the brand’s aesthetics and has been brought to life keeping in mind a space where there are no edges and the walls flow into each other. Just like Antar Agni’s garments, the store draws from the natural world and you are sure to feel a sense of calm. Rest assured, this is an entirely different ball game from a typically hectic retail experience and you’d have to give it a visit to know what we are talking about. While you are at the store, look out for Antar Agni’s collection of kurtas, waistcoats and, bandhgalas.
