Shopper’s Stop, which stocks the brand, does not have their latest range. The only exclusive outlet in Mumbai is at Malad’s InOrbit Mall, nearly two hours from where I live and work. I am clearly not their target audience.

They have set aside almost an entire floor for womenswear at their exclusive store on Linking Road. The lady who assists me is well informed and friendly. There are jackets (in grey, black, black with stripes) with coordinated trousers and waistcoats, jersey tops, shirts, formal knitwear et cetera. The jacket (Rs5,499) fits nicely, but the trousers (Rs1,999) remind me of the 1980s when anything you bought in India was loose at the waist and tight at the hips. They have plain cotton-lycra shirts for Rs1,399, dinky waistcoats that range from Rs1,799 to Rs1,999. Plus, there is an eveningwear line. They have basic black leather pumps for Rs3,300, and some great thin belts in white, red, blue, black and brown (Rs449 to 459).


ColorPlus womenswear has lots of casual tops, tees, knits and skirts. I liked the silk and sandwashed silk blouses in the Rs2,000 plus range.
