If you are one of those who believes you can never have enough shoes, there’s good news. Heel & Buckle, London’s bespoke accessory store opened its first outlet in India at the luxury mall Palladium in Mumbai. I was invited for a preview and here’s what I think
Heel & Buckle stocks two brands each for men and women. What I liked the most is the men’s range – very sleek, modern and sophisticated some of the pairs sport unusual combinations of jute and leather, suede and leather. Loved the double monks. There is a range of hand crafted shoes from Alessandro, Italy.
For the women there are gorgeous heels from the Singaporean brand Pazzion. Spanish brand Paco Gil shoes are more dramatic with striking sensuality and bold sophistication. For those seeking comfort there are cute flats too. The store also has a limited edition of bags and belts.
Dhiraj Bhatija the man who brought the brand to India has ambitious plans for Heel & Buckle. The North Country Mall, Chandigarh will soon see the second Heel & Buckle store in August. Delhi will come next around the end of the year followed by stores in the NCR Region, Chennai, Bangalore, Calcutta, Hyderabad and Pune in no particular order.
Price Range: Rs 4500 – 28000
