En Inde designer Anupama Sukh Lalvani creates fiercely bold pieces (such as these gold-plated cube bangles) that transition well from day to night. Lalvani—who cofounded the line with Sonal Sood in 2004—works with raw (not precious) materials, including leather, jute, and steel. "Delhi is an old city with new blood coming in daily," she says. "Whether they're the Louboutin-clad or those in leather kolapuri sandals—both embrace our aesthetic." What about India inspires her? "The crazy contrasts and belief systems, the geography and varying landscapes, the architecture of mosques and Hindu temples, women in sculpture and mythology—India caught between the past and the future." 125/126 Meharchand Market, first floor; 91-11/4905-0832; $100 each.

Find it at Second Floor Studio (417 Shahpur Jat; 91-11/4142-0324; $116), the creative playpen of Punit Jasuja, located in buzzy Shahpur Jat—an urban village of stylish boutiques, cafés, and galleries.
