Located on the outskirts of Bangalore, Grasshopper makes the hour long drive to Bannerghatta worthwhile with its collection of clothing designed by designers, as well as a fine diner. Located on a family farm, the setup is the brainchild of Himanshu Dimri and Sonali Sattar, who also operate the fine dining restaurant on the property by the same name. Hidden Harmony is the couple’s own brand of clothing that they retail at the store along with a few other designers whose creations have a similar sensibility— of clean lines, comfortable fits and immensely versatile garments. Some of the other clothing labels on offer are Joe Ikareth and Savio Jon. Apart from this, Grasshopper is also a great place to pick up designs by upcoming city- based and international designers. Look for shoes by Goa- based Edwin Pinto, stoles made by Bangalore- based textile designer Julie Kagti, jewellery by Swiss designer Nadja Lokschin and leather bags by Kris, and more. Also on offer are some unique pieces of silver jewellery. So head to Grasshopper to pick up accessories, clothes— all of them being of a contemporary mould.
Rs 1,800 onwards for shoes by Edwin Pinto to Rs 20,000 for jewellery by Nadja Lokschin
