Beach Party

Turquoise & Gold has opened a store in Bandra and their current collection screams beach and colour. Dev Goswami finds out more

Turquoise & Gold's new store in Bandra is tiny and the fact that almost half of the store is devoted to changing rooms makes it seem even smaller. This can be both good and bad, since at first glance, it seems like they don’t have enough variety. But, the beautifully designed store more than makes up for this and you can tell that shopping here will be a breeze.

Two racks flank the cramped walls as you enter and the accessories are well-placed behind the reception, which doubles up as a billing counter. I was drawn immediately to their current summer clothing range, that features pretty prints in fun colours. Predominately beachwear, the collection features monokinis, bikinis, swimsuits and cover-ups. They also have a few full-length dresses that are perfect for a casual evening out. Apparel at the store is swathed in cool shades of blue and green, with subtle tones of yellow and red peeking through. White leads their colour palette, since it acts as the base colour for most of their merchandise. A variety in prints however, is, unfortunately, missing from their designs. I saw nothing but a few animal prints, some geometric designs and an overdose of floral. That said, the designs that do make an appearance are good enough to pick up almost immediately.

Their accessories and jewellery however, were a huge disappointment. The earrings and necklaces were uninspired and the subdued, dull gold coating on most of the jewellery didn’t add anything to the designs or complement the apparel that they have in stock at the moment. The hats were their only saving grace, but even those seemed quite limited.

The store's blue-white décor deserves a special mention. The all-white paint scheme coupled with the green-blue chandeliers and curtains make Turquoise & Gold a very attractive store — one that will entice you to step in while you're walking by on Turner Road. However, once you step in, you might not be very impressed by their collection. So, is the store worth a visit? Certainly, because it won't take you more than a few minutes to breeze through their collection. The prices at the store start from Rs 3,500 and go up to Rs 22,500.
