What you see –
Cool Club is a fashion store for men, women and kids in Indiranagar, Bangalore. The house-turned-store has a small garden outside while mannequins stand tall behind large glass panes on either side of the entrance. A metal detector at the gate lets you into the store where World Space music keeps you entertained while you shop.
What you get –
Cool Club has some of the most fashionable collections of casual wear, party wear, traditional wear and western wear for women. There are T-shirts, shorts, night suits, dresses, kurtas, kurtis, skirts (long flared, pleated, straight, pencil, A-line, divided, crinkle), tunics, tops (tank, tube, spaghetti) and denims. All these are available within a price range of Rs. 1,200 and hence make for a budget shopping place. In fact, cotton night suits with polka dotted shorts and lacy tank tops are worth buying at Rs. 140. Also, an attractive stock of dresses or party gowns across myriad colors and fabric are available at Rs. 600 onwards. For that ultra-modern look at a party, go for elegant tube tops and pair with sophisticated netted jackets that are difficult to find elsewhere.
For a traditional yet chic look, you can pair embroidered, knee length kurtas in cotton available at Rs. 595 onwards with a range of colorful leggings. Bright colored cotton tunics with black thread embroidery are also a must buy at Rs. 495 onwards. To accessorize your outfit, scarves and stoles at Rs. 95 onwards cannot be ignored. Among other accessories for women, Cool Club stocks fancy belts (Rs. 125 onwards) and clutch bags (these are little passé for their plain and rugged look).
For men, the store in Bangalore features T-shirts, casual shirts and trousers, denim and shorts. Cotton shirts in stripes and double collar shirts in various colors and patterns are a must buy (Rs. 500-1,000). There is a limited collection of formal trousers for men too. These are available for Rs. 495, have a glossy texture and promise you a stylish look even at work. They could make for wonderful party pants as well.
For kids, Cool Club offers frocks, skirts, shorts, party dresses, T-shirts, clothing sets for new born babies, three fourth pants and more. Accessories like school bags and caps are there to lure kids too. The collection for children is rather very unique and is from Europe.
Besides, jeans, jackets and sportswear including track pants, jogging pants, etc. for men, women and kids are also worth giving a try as these are available at quite reasonable prices compared to other big brands.
Our verdict –
MetroMela found Cool Club very unique in terms of assortment as you get only a single piece for any outfit (except for some kurta collections for women and clothes for little girls). However, finding all sizes for an outfit could get difficult. Attendants are co-operative but some may be too intrusive. Four well equipped trail rooms are available and parking can be done along the roadside.
