Even though Juhu Beach and Chowpatty don’t exactly paint a picture of a beach city with women in gorgeous bikinis, Mumbai’s love affair with sandy shores and nearby destinations like Goa more than make up for it. To feed this obsession, India’s first and my favourite beachwear designers Shivan & Narresh have opened a store at Pali Hill, Bandra. I can’t tell you how excited I am about it. I am incredibly fond of them as designers and as people. There’s not a single piece in their store that I don’t absolutely L.O.V.E. Their store opening party was a great hit, the petit fours with their designs printed on them were pretty delicious, so were all the hors d’oeuvres catered by Dolce at The Leela Mumbai. They were served with great wine.
So, if you live in Mumbai and have a fetish for resort and beachwear, just head to their store at Pali Hill and trust you me, you won’t be disappointed.
