The newly launched flagship store of the Bombay Shirt Company is a Contemporary unique blend of design and simplicity.
Located in Mumbai’s Bandra (West).Founded by Akshay Narvekar,
Bombay Shirt Company encapsulates the essence of the city – modern, yet swathed in old-world charm. The new Bandra store will offer an extensive variety of trendy designs as well as corporate staples for men and women, with a master tailor on hand to help with measurements and suggestions.
Stocked with over 1,000 luxurious formal and casual fabrics that can be mixed and matched with different shirt elements (collars, cuffs, buttons, etc.), there are also special design features such as contrast fabrics, leather, suede and twill tapes. Fashionistas have even more reason to rejoice – the Bandra store has a wider selection of fabrics for women, such as georgette and silk crêpe satin, among others.
Designed by Mumbai-based designer Aurnab Biswas, the 450 sq. ft. store also has a charming al fresco area where customers can sip on coffee and people-watch while designing their shirts. As with the Kala Ghoda store, the new store will also be flooded with as much natural light as possible.
The overall form, material, color palette is warm, natural and neutral. The simplicity and clarity of the design were inspired by the company's ethos of demystifying the creation of a custom-made shirt.
The idea was to provide a canvas for the variety of colorful fabrics and shirts, and, to that end, they have reprised from Kala Ghoda some favorite design elements, such as the communal design table for customers and stylists.
