It’s not often that someone gets a new species of flower named after them. In this case, the bloom is a bicolored anemone chrysanthemum that has been specially bred and named after Timo Bolte of Bolte Event Design. Of course, the BOLTE Chrysanthemum deserves to be celebrated in style, which has taken place in the form of a fabulous fashion editorial shoot in the streets of London.
With easing Covid restrictions, people around the world are anticipating future outings and meet ups with loved ones – not to mention, getting dressed up and creating a “grand entrance” when returning to a public place for a good time. Besides the obvious return of luxury wedding celebrations, there’s also bridal showers, engagement parties, bachelorette getaways, and a myriad of other parties that will be coming up on many people’s calendars. After a year of working from home and living in grey sweat pants, it’s easier than ever to understand why society always dressed to the nines after the Spanish flu had passed. Without a doubt, the “Roaring Twenties” will be back. It may be a new century, but there’s sure to be lavish celebrations with big gowns and opulent floral installations.
To ring in the Roaring Twenties, photographer Ambra Vernuccio took to London’s streets with Bolte Event Design for a deeply inspired fashion editorial shoot, complete with bushels of BOLTE Chrysanthemums. We can only imagine how glamorous this summer’s parties in London will be, but flowers will certainly be abundant; so another detail within this editorial shoot is floral-inspired jewelry from Oscar de la Renta. Black and white gowns from UK-based designer Millia London perfectly offset the pop of color provided by the BOLTE Chrysanthemums and iconic red London phonebooths; and a frilly pink gown is a gorgeous representation of the scene’s celebratory spirit.
“Get your dancing shoes out and get ready for the upcoming season,” says Timo. “It’s going to be roaring.”
