It’s no secret that Sonam Kapoor-Ahuja has revolutionised celebrity style in India. Whether it’s draping a traditional sari in an experimental way or showing how street style is done, Sonam has always been a trailblazer. If there’s one thing that’s apparent from her sartorial choices is that she values self-expression above everything else. This is why it comes as no surprise that the Neerja actress is now the face of Zoya, House of Tata’s fine jewellery boutique, which celebrates self-expression and uniqueness. It is a true meeting of minds.
The luxury atelier now introduces its new autograph collection ‘My Embrace’. A signature identifier, its evocative symbolism celebrates the Zoya woman joyfully embracing all her hues. The collection features 26 pieces that powerfully translate the emotional essence of a self-embrace through a simple design that is youthful and timeless, yet significant in its craftsmanship.
In a freewheeling chat with Sonam Kapoor-Ahuja at the launch of Zoya’s new campaign, we learn more about this beautiful collection which is a must-have for every jewellery connoisseur’s bijoux box:
