The Boudoir Tale: Abstract Sex We don’t have any clothes, only equipment & Artissima

For the city of Turin, the week that ends October and starts November is incredibly full of art and music events. In just 7 days (and even less), the average agenda is packed with such interesting things! Artissima, D.A.M.A., Club2Club, and uncountable collateral events just to indicate some names.

Being in Turin during the Turinese Art Week means enjoying contemporary art everywhere, witnessing the coming out from the white cube pouring wildly into the streets. It means observing with amazement the genesis of new exciting contaminations, synergies. Which translates for us as a never-ending source of inspiration.

Between loads of collateral artsy event, we have found the one is perfect for us, for our creative process and for Wedding Date in Italy, involving contemporary art within a luxury, local and interesting brands in a collaboration we love: KristinaT and Lovever.

Here, contemporary art gets into a luxury fashion boutique. And we attended yesterday's opening!

That is the reason why it is the first title of our brand new column: "The Boudoir Tale".

Currently Attending: Abstract Sex We don’t have any clothes, only equipment

Conceived by Ilaria Bonacossa and curated by Lucrezia Calabrò Visconti and Guido Costa, this new exhibition project follows the fair mainline by hearting the theme of the desire. Photographs, videos, sculptures, works on canvas or papers have been selected strictly by the galleries attending Artissima with the aim of suggesting unexpected alliances between bodies, objects, machinery and concepts to disarm traditional representations of desire through an incredible melange of historical and contemporary narratives. By bringing together unexpected tools, hybrid devices, and deviant technologies, Abstract Sex has the courage of proposing a transversal perspective between real and virtual life, where everything surrounding us can be rethought as a weapon at the service of new mythologies.

Suspended between a pirate action and an exhibition, Abstract Sex collects artworks that represent a specific moment. After the Second World War, the sophisticated war technologies turned into devices for perfecting the "body" as a socially and culturally determined concept is the one.

Kristina Ti's New Lingerie Capsule Collection

For the Artissima 2019 edition, Kristina Ti is a special project partner of "Abstract Sex": the exhibition project that brings the fair to the city and through unexpected objects tells stories of sexuality in its most unconventional forms. On this occasion, a few days ago the KTI flagship store became the exhibition space for an evening, by welcoming and amplifying her concept of sensuality. A special t-shirt was released for Artissima, which you may find ready to purchase or in a Fair Corner or online. While this alluring brand launched the new lingerie capsule collection, the location was staged by Lovever, the first concept store dedicated to love. Witnessing the creation of new alluring synergies: what an amazing opportunity! Like the one between Lovever and Kristina Ti: two local realities with the vision of a sensual (and conscious) woman in common.

A Charming Wedding in the Italian Riviera

When Love Strikes, It Knows No Border

This is the story about a special couple, who met in Geneva, fell in love in the luscious Swiss countryside, and got married by the Mediterranean Sea. She is Italian, he is Swedish, and they decided to celebrate the most important day of their lives in a place with a special meaning to her: Villa Ormond in Sanremo. But what we found extremely fascinating about this project, was all the path leading to this day.

The Bride's smile always makes us happy @Joyphotographers

A path made out of the organization and extreme attention to details. The bride-to-be was determined to give the best Italian hospitality experience to both her international and close Italian guests. For this reason in the previous months, she wanted us to show them all the best venues and perches of Italian culture as well first in her second hometown: Turin.

The Bride's Exclusive Pre-Wedding Events in Turin: A Twist of Royalty

With its elegant tastes, historic cafes and its tree-lined boulevards, Turin is the perfect venue where to host unforgettable events, also with different flairs. So, when it came to designing the perfect events for the bride-to-be, we had the most intriguing of the ideas: showing what the best Turin has to offer. An aristocratic and unforgettable dinner in an exclusive Count Cavour-founded gentlemen’s club,  and unique aperos in two of the most charming squares: Piazza della Consolata and Piazza Carignano, offering a curated selection of the best Piedmontese wines and food delicacies were set out to rock.

The Day Before the Wedding Day in Sanremo: The Bridal Room at the Hotel Miramare, And The Apero Overlooking the Mediterranean Sea

The day before the wedding is always delicate: the wedding couple and their guests are arriving, ready to celebrate properly. While we accommodated the latter in carefully selected hotels, where the shuttle service was assured by a punctual logistic plan, we welcomed the former into a spacious, luxurious bridal room in the prestigious Hotel Miramare, Sanremo, Liguria. Talking about the bridal room is talking about something we really care about. Choosing the perfect one is very delicate, as it will be the bride’s second home in Italy. Here, the most important moments of her life are filled with all kinds of emotions and desires, expectations and love. That is the reason why we made it as much welcoming as possible, filled with fresh fruits, champagne and all the treats she requested.

Besides, we made her a special surprise gift: a precious corsage made of David Austin cut roses called Patience, we made arrive straight from South Africa. In the same venue, we choose to host an apero by the pool overlooking the sea, under a romantic starry sky. Here, uniformed waiters served a selected finger food menu with a carefully paired wine tasting. With a surprise here as well: the pasta della mezzanotte was offered with the unique goal of delighting our international guests.

In the meantime, the venue is being prepared, the scenographer and the flowers designer start to do their magic, the catering is arriving and the special lights technicians test their unique light designs.  As we have been knowing each one of these handpicked contractors for a long time, believe us when we say that, despite the natural pressure a wedding planner is under the day before the wedding, meeting again made us all very happy and motivated to reach the goal of making the event perfect.

Luxury Wedding Backstage: Guido Toschi with Cristina Artana

Take as an example the scenographer. More than a designer, Guido Toschi is a true artist. Involved in the organization of the most exclusive weddings worldwide, Guido is an eclectic man who prides himself to design unique marquees for the exteriors. Also, the floral designer, Giulia from Opificio Floreale, gave a natural yet elegant touch to the ensemble, striving to find the best balance between being organic and harmonious. For the catering, we choose Roland’s Florence: a solid long-lasting partnership we tied with since the destination weddings we organized in Florence. With him, not only we share years of common projects, but also the same view about the highest quality of Italian food and beverage. Last but not least, the Kaleydo light designers: also from Florence, they have long expertise in dressing venues with jaw-dropping lights. The night before the wedding is sweet. The summer is ended, but not the pleasant weather.

The Wedding Day in Villa Ormond, Sanremo

On September 22nd, everywhere is buzzing. The bride and her beloved guests are been treated like royals. A special beauty room is set up with the best hairdressers and the makeup artists while we are finalizing all the details. We are also ready to deliver the bride a special treat: a unique bouquet. Not an average one: a precious rigid structure where pressed hand-painted hydrangea petals are assembled to compose a stunning wedding accessory. Designed expressly by us, realized by an incredible artisan, loved by our bride.

Before the civil ceremony starts, we helped in setting up the special nursery room, where the little guests were welcomed by professional nannies, while we took care of the necessary logistics. Wedding_Nurseries_Ideas_from_Wedding_Date_in_Italy-min The ceremony then takes place smoothly and, we may add, heartwarmingly. Looking the unspeakable happiness in the eyes of this couple and of their guests, surrounded by the elegant setting of this scenographic villa, is priceless.

The cut of the wedding cake, a unique and tasty fruit cakes – perfect for the summer weather –, was really touching. This, also thanks to a well-designed floral contour and light design.
