Valentine’s Day is knocking at the door. The classic red and pink colours have covered the whole market with a romantic vibe, and everyone is making plans with their partner or friends. In this age of “fit check” and gram approve, we are looking for details that will make us look different and fad. So if you are tired of just styling red and pink dresses, Miraggio has teamed up with Shanaya Kapoor to curate a handbag collection that is the epitome of grand and glam. In this collaboration, Miraggio is launching bags that will pop into your Instagram grids. Shanaya’s youthful and elegant character perfectly reflects Miraggio’s trendy spirit. ELLE sat down with the Gen Z star to take a deep dive into the inspiration behind the collection and her Valentine’s Day plans.
ELLE: Tell us about your association with Miraggio and what does it mean for you?
Shanaya Kapoor: I believe that fashion is the key to one’s confidence and I have always loved experimenting with fun bags. Collaborating with a young fashion-forward brand was such an exhilarating experience. These bags have my heart and that’s what makes them perfect!
ELLE: Your recent collection with Miraggio brings back the ’90s tiny bag style. Personally, are you a tote or mini bag person and why?
SK: Mini bag person! I don’t have much honestly to carry, I like to keep it light, and easy breezy for the day! I personally feel a mini bag is a much fresher and more fun!
ELLE: As a Gen-Z, what’s your prerequisite before investing in a bag?
SK: We are all about fun and our bags should speak that right? I love a bag with a pop of colour, just the right size to fit my essentials, and obviously sturdy! A bag that ties in my personality with my Outfit of The Day!
ELLE: What about Miraggio aligns with your personal style?
SK: Honestly, if I were to define my style, it would be fresh and chic. What I love the most about Miraggio is that they have new styles coming in every month, always keeping it fresh! They’re also launching a Limited edition collection with me soon. Sshhhh
ELLE: If we were to peek into your bag right now, what are the 5 things we will find?
SK: I always have a cardholder with a few polaroids of some very special and priceless moments. You will also find a new camera film in the bag, a pair of sunglasses, some dark chocolate and perfume.
ELLE: Talking about the ‘Love Editon’ collection, give us your top picks and how one can style them.
SK: The Miraggio Valentines Collection has my Heart (literally!). I’ve already planned how I’m going to style them. A Galentines Brunch is a ritual & I’ll add the cute and petite Passion crossbody bag to complete my day look! The Amour sling bag is perfect for a night out, it’s bold and can hold all my essentials effortlessly. Few Lines about the collection ‘Love Edition’: Valentine’s Day at MIRAGGIO is all about passion. A collection that promises to be more romantic than ever with a strong presence of romantic symbols. With hues of reds, pinks, whites, and blacks, these bags are swoon-worthy for the Love season. What says ‘I love you’ better than a thoughtfully chosen fashionable gift?
