After seeing a massive influx in street culture and its growing appeal across the Indian demographic, it’s safe to say that streetwear mania has absolutely engulfed the homegrown market. With elements from Indian textiles, diverse culture and a unique design language all combined, India is defining its own fashion movement; one that is of the people, for the people and by the people.
As Indian streetwear brands and platforms open up retail stores and community-driven spaces that explore a diverse palette of fashionable takes, identities and ensembles, Homegrown lets you in on some unmissable streetwear stores located in the national capital.
I. Almost Gods
Almost Gods was built out of a shared perspective that streetwear should consistently be the driving factor in pushing the boundaries and expectations of the fashion industry. In a 400-square-foot stone-carved building inspired by the Nabatean architecture of Petra, Jordan, the brand recently debuted its first flagship store in Delhi.
The store has a large gryphon in mid-flight breaking out of the rocky walls, and the interior features Nabatean architectural design elements, that include wall carvings and stacked rock constructions. Shop for approachable designs that represent urban streetwear and indulge in a plethora of live events, art showcases and listening parties at the newly launched store.
VegNonVeg is India’s first multi-brand sneaker store, based in Delhi. Over time, VegNonVeg has committed to developing India’s own story of sneaker and street culture. With a heavily curated selection of all kinds of sneakers, ranging from classic and heritage models to their modern tech-infused counterparts and limited edition or hard-to-find collaborations across brands, this store in Delhi’s Meherchand Market is the first of its kind.
Crepdog Crew (CDC), one of India’s premier sneaker and streetwear marketplaces, transitioned from an online store to a physical retail space located in Delhi’s hotspot Saidulajab area.
