Flowers in fashion!
Florence is a city that seems immobile in its beauty but there are two weeks of the year, in January and June, that the historic center is transformed.
We are talking about the days when Pitti Immagine Uomo invades Florence with exceptional parties, events and fashion shows.
In June we too, with our flowers and our most creative ideas, dedicate ourselves to setting up locations and boutiques as happened for 2 very different locations such as Ferragamo and Santo Spirito 9.
For Ferragamo, for whom we have been designing for a long time of his luxury boutique in Via Tornabuoni, we have created bouquets inspired by the colors of the new summer collection, pale pink mixed with violet and deep green of decorative branches.
For Santo Spirito 9, a minimal fashion store, located just a few steps from our headquarters in Via Santo Spirito, we have instead created a real “sky” made with bunches of Limonio, a perennial herbaceous plant that turns from the wisteria to the intense violet.
In short, even the flowers on the occasion of Pitti Uomo, become fashionable!
A luxury wedding in Florence
Among the most prestigious locations in Florence, the Four Seasons Hotel is certainly one of the most coveted to host the celebrations that precede and follow an exclusive wedding ceremony, allowing the preparation and the organization of luxurious celebrations designed in every detail.
It is here that we recently curated the floral decoration project for a super-chic wedding organized by “Your wedding in Florence”, together with Guido Guidi Ricevimenti and the photographer Sofia Balli.
A perfect team that has taken care of the entire event in every detail thanks to an impeccable organization, a location of high aesthetic value and the style impressed on the entire concept.
In agreement with the wedding planner, we chose a palette of sophisticated colors, such as white and green, which perfectly matched the golden details required by the theme.
Starting from the location, from the features that this offered, we found a common thread that allowed us to find very chic solutions to maximize the mise en place.
The location has been made unique by a perfect setting that has transformed the large halls into a dream environment to transport newlyweds and guests in a completely magical atmosphere.
A not ordinary location!
The wedding of Federico d’Annunzio and Giulia Mazzoni has been defined eccentric and unconventional. The newlyweds that live in Florence, have chosen Fiorile for the floral arrangement of an important location as the “Vittoriale degli Italiani” at Gardone Riviera.
He is an entrepreneur but also the legitimate grandnephew of the poet and she is an artist who performs concerts all over the world.
The style chosen for the floral design project – curated entirely by the Fiorile team – was inspired by the bride and her clothes but also by the umbrellas and fans signed Gabriele d’Annunzio that were given to guests.
Romantic but contemporary as the bride wanted, a wedding where carmine red and pink peonies – which also composed the bouquet – stood out under the sun of the Puglia royal ship.
Among the invited: Michael Nyman and Roberto Cacciapaglia, the journalist Roberto D’Agostino, Mario Marzi and the jazzman Achille Succi.
An absolutely special wedding like the location, transformed by Fiorile in an extraordinary floral tableau!
