Located in a residential area (your driver will need to call for directions), Taara is the chicest new shop to open in Jaipur. The city has long been the shopping mecca of India with legendary jewelry shops and Euro-chic takes on Indian fashion like Hot Pink, but now for those who want the best of the bazaars and expat designs there is a new concept shop that is the one-stop shop for Jaipur visitors. Taara occupies a white stucco house with a turquoise and indigo decorative trim. The stairway leading up to the second floor shop features enormous Buddha paintings and dhurrie rugs that announce the funky mix of Eastern tradition and global chic that you will find in the upstairs rooms that have been designed around different Indian regions. One is hung with hundreds of colorful lanterns and displays furniture, antique carpets and silver and wooden objects. Fashion and accessories for women and children, including cashmere scarves (both traditionally embroidered and printed with modern motifs like skulls) and electric colored kaftans are displayed in another. Pillows and dhurries, which can be ordered in modern palettes such as cornflower blue with metallic silver or ivory and lavender in any size occupy another. For the jewelry showroom, the family who created the mirrored inlay in the maharajah’s palaces and the Oberoi hotels fashioned glimmering panels on white walls, which are accented with silver Buddha heads and shelves of antique silver. The shop is the passion project of jeweler Vinesh Kumar who named it after his grandmother and whose wife Shalina manages it. Next up they plan to sell outdoor furniture and garden objects on the rooftop. Not yet in any guidebooks or on hotel concierge’s radars, you may have a hard time persuading your driver to take you here but it will be well worth the trip.
