Originating in Mumbai in 1897 as the first departmental store in India, Akbarally’s flaunts the antiquity of its rich legacy that derives from its existence of over 118 years. Conversing with the historicity of the city, today the 10,000 square feet Akbarallys Men is a multi-branded departmental store for men. With a shop-in-shop format, the store reinvents its original, over a 100-year old concept of everything under one roof- for men, housing an extensive collection from premium Indian and international brands along with bespoke clothing. Maintaining its antique character that was bequest over its structure in the prime, significant Fort area in Mumbai, the brief was to transform the old site into its contemporary avatar, while retaining the celebrated inheritance.
