I am sure all of you there on the other side of the screen are celebrating the festivals and getting prepared for all the weddings and functions to attend. So,’m I. This season is so busy that either we are sleeping because of weather being so lazy or we are getting dressed up for some occasions or the other.
Well, this post is long awaited as I visited this brand almost a week back. Also, this American brand has been one of my favorite because of the quality clothing on reasonable price.
My friend from Barnala visited me here in Delhi last week and she wanted go for shopping. So,we thought to go to Select City Walk,Saket,New Delhi.We absolutely had no idea that Aéropostale store has opened up its first store in New Delhi.Last time,when we went to the same mall and saw that Aéropostale is ‘Coming Soon’. But had no news of it opening up on 7th November 2015.
Anyways,we were shocked and happy both. Shocked because it was unexpected and I seriously had no intention of shopping. I am an impulsive shopper and this is why this time I just thought to control ‘MY SHOPAHOLIC SOUL’ and decided not to buy even a single thing.
I FAILED. . .THAT TOO MISERABLY.
I could not control myself from shopping after exploring the store.
Here are a few lines about ‘Aéropostale’ :
An American clothing brand has opened its first store in India with its first flagship store at Select City Walk,New Delhi.
Inaugurated by Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor, the store offers a wide range of clothing and accessories from their fall-winter 2015 collection for men and women.
A brand known for its jeans, hoodies and t-shirts, Aéropostale has target market of 14 to 25 year old young women and men.
My Shopping Experience :
We reached the store around 6 pm and by chance on its opening day,luckily. It was a bit crowded and the store was small and less spacious. They are checking the response of Indian crowd before expanding the store,I believe.
IT WAS A LONG QUEUE FOR THE TRIAL ROOM.
So, we thought to choose the key items and come some other time.Me and my friend both tried a few denims in sizes like 24.5 S,R and L (New to Indians) and some T-shirts and a few hoodies and jackets.
From inside,the store might give you a feel of SUPERDRY store.
SUPERDRY COMPETITION HAS COME TO INDIA,FINALLY.
Have a look at the pictures to see the store.The images are not that finished because of unplanned visit and my phone camera being no so good and store being too crowded. But it will give you a fair view of the store.
Let’s see what I bought :
I did not plan to go for shopping so was not carrying much cash on me. I could buy only two pieces in the cash I had. But I am content with my shopping as I got what I have been looking for.
I bought :
- A faux leather Jacket;
- Aéropostale patent sequined t-shirt
One color I did not have in my wardrobe is mint color and also I wanted to buy a new Aéropostale Sequin T-shirt from a long time and found it here and I said to my heart ,”Go for it,Darls.”
This was for Rs.999 and the fabric was super soft and color made me look brighter. I BOUGHT IT.
After trying few hoodies,I saw this Brown Leather Jacket. Superchic.Very Hot. Extremely Hot. I knew I want to buy this and after trying few sizes (the guy in the store was very helpful in getting me my right size),I found one for myself. This was size M and priced at Rs. 4999. I had no second thought on my mind,when I saw this jacket and bought this. It is warm and not in pure leather but gives a look of one. Rs. 4999 was not a bad price to pay for this jacket.
The bag you can see in the image,I got it as free gift as my shopping value was above Rs.4999. This bag was also Aéropostale bag and was in combination of blue fabric and black leather. It looked pretty cool.
My final take :
I was very happy with my shopping experience at Aéropostale store.I had shopped from the online websites for the same brand and was already aware of the quality.The store staff was very helpful and energetic. Store was not very spacious but I believe they will work on it,if they get good response from India.Store had all the fall collection starting from basic t-shirts to jackets and hoodies. That means winters are sorted.
The store’s interiors were kept very sporty,rough and tough as the brand image is.It has variety of t-shirts,hoodies,jeans and accessories too.
You must visit the store and try out the collection,it is of good quality and on reasonable price.
Thank you for reading. Share your experience if you visit the store anytime soon.
