Emporio Mall in Delhi
If you want to buy a Harry Winston, or Armani couture in Delhi, you know you’ve to head straight to Emporio Mall. One of three malls on the kilometer-long stretch of premium shopping space in Vasant Kunj, Emporio houses some of the biggest luxury brands in the world, including Vertu, Versace, Gucci, Jimmy Choo and Roberto Cavalli. Indian designers too are well represented; Manish Arora, Rahul Gandhi + Rohit Khanna, Suneet Varma and Tarun Tahiliani, among others, have stores here. The mall also has a range of eating options, including the fine-dining restaurant Set’z, and the über-classy and stylish Cavalli Caffè.

Palladium in Mumbai
Located in Mumbai’s nerve centre for everything retail — the Phoenix Mills Complex — is the city’s ‘it’ destination for all brands luxe. Besides world-renowned brands such as Chanel, Canali, Gucci, Jimmy Choo and Armani, the mall is also home to Royce (ground level), a Japanese chocolate maker and confectioner from Hokkaido, known for its original, innovative and flavourful chocolates. Another must-see (and spend time in) space is the Jean Claude Biguine Salon and Spa from Paris on the mall’s third level; check out the organic hair and beauty products here. The mall is part of the High Street Phoenix tri-mall complex.

Quest Mall in Kolkata
Luxury brands were always about stand-alone stores in Kolkata. That is, until Quest Mall came along. Located in Ballygunge, this ‘dynamic lifestyle destination’ has a smattering of everything — food, high-end shopping and entertainment — all of which scream, “Indulge.” Besides our good old friends Armani, Gucci, Canali and Burberry, the mall also boasts large Michael Kors and Rolex stores. Bombay Brasserie, Irish House, Serafina, Smoke House Deli and Yauatcha make up the fine-dining section, while the INOX multiplex here will feed your movie cravings.

Bergamo Mall in Chennai
If you think Chennai fashion is all about traditional jewellery and smart south-cotton and Kanjeevaram saris, you are obviously bowling wide. Over the years, the city’s glitterati has become pretty fashion-conscious. The proof: Bergamo Mall. In the Nungambakkam neighbourhood of the city is this marble-and-glass edifice that houses brands such as Lladró, Mont Blanc, Canali, Jimmy Choo, Tag Heuer, Harmon Kardon and Bottega Veneta. Also worth checking out is the Irish Lounge and the rooftop restaurant.

The Collection in Bengaluru
In the the lower three levels of the Concorde and Canberra blocks of UB City, Bengaluru’s premier address for offices and residences, is The Collection, touted as the first luxury retail space in India. The one-lakh-sq-ft-plus area houses over 40 internationally acclaimed brands such as Corneliani, Crabtree & Evelyn, Estée Lauder, Lladró, Louis Vuitton and Michael Kors. The mall is also known for its dinning spaces — enjoy Mediterranean cuisine at Fava, exotic Indian kebabs and curries at Khansama, or check out the Japanese, Chinese and Balinese food at Shiro. And if you’re looking to treat yourself to a day at the spa, look no farther than the Angsana Day Spa in the UB City complex.
