Mr. CK Venkataraman, MD at Titan Company Limited and Mr. Puneet Chhatwal, MD & CEO at Indian Hotels Company Limited opened doors to the sixth landmark boutique of Zoya in the country, at the Taj Mahal Palace. This alignment of two of the most luxurious brands from the house of Tata is a momentous occasion for the conglomerate. Over the years, the exquisite atelier from the house of Tata, has emerged as a destination of choice for the discerning sophisticate, with a reputation for unmatched creativity, innovative design and impeccable craftsmanship. Zoya’s meaningful pieces of wearable art are a bejewelled celebration of its muse, the Zoya woman, thoughtfully designed as a timeless ode to her journey of finding her true self. The Taj Mahal Palace is one of the world’s most renowned addresses for luxury and for Zoya to be housed in the iconic address is serendipitous. The opening of the beautiful Zoya boutique at this iconic address is indeed a momentous occasion for the Tatas as the two brands come together.

A warm glass façade rises from floor to ceiling, offering an inviting glimpse into Zoya’s lush feminine interiors that sparkle with its rare treasures. A soft hush and pastel hues of white, beige and blush, extend a warm welcome. Curved surfaces of the walls bring alive the sense celebration in a woman’s journey that is the heart of the Zoya world. Here is a space of indulgence, with uninterrupted “me-time” to explore your love for fine jewellery! Signature chandeliers in white and blush weave their way through the store. Handcrafted from the sustainable pulp of banana leaves, and inspired by the fragile loveliness of clover blooms, their design is symbolic of the delicate blossoming and growth inherent in the journey of a woman through life. Accents on the marble floor complement artistic detailing on the boutique’s curved white walls, creating an intuitive path around floating window displays and a central island, redolent of an art gallery.
An unhurried exploration leads to the heart of the boutique revealing Zoya’s expressive collections and its classics. Skilfully blending tradition with modernity, every Zoya creation is resonant with meaning and transformed with inspired design.
