What: Roberto Cavalli store, shop 132, ground floor, Emporio Mall, Vasant Kunj, call 9711484838, approximately Rs 30,000 for a leopard print top.
Why: We’ve been contemplating a trip to Tanzania this month, and one turn around India’s first, brand-spanking-new Cavalli store was all it took to strengthen our resolve: here, signature leopard prints live on silvery-grey blouses and zebra stripes unfurl over a one-shouldered dress with wide, palazzo-like sleeve. Perfect way to blend into the Serengeti (and also Delhi’s social circus)! Also pretty are satin pants the colour of a robin’s egg and a leafy green printed caftan with belt and cutaway back. The loot is expensive, but they hold regular champagne sales, so be sure to add your name to their mailing list.
When: We bought a zoo. Read all about it in our full review, out soon!
