Florence, 21 November 2019 - Hotel Savoy, the stylish Rocco Forte hotel in Florence, and Aquazzura, the Italian luxury footwear brand, have joined forces to offer guests a very merry vibe to celebrate this year’s festive season. From November 28 to January 6, Hotel Savoy will feature Aquazzura’s specially crafted Christmas decorations throughout the lobby, reception and Irene Bistro, combining luxury, tradition and Florentine fashion - principles that are already weaved into the hotel’s design.
Visitors are greeted with a grand Christmas tree, brightly centered in the lobby, whilst smaller trees are carefully planted throughout the main spaces, tastefully decorated with silver Aquazzura ornaments and radiant golden pineapple decorations. The pineapple, Aquazzura’s logo, is an emblem of hospitality, making it the perfect centerpiece for this partnership. It’s a symbol that also reflects prosperity, and in some cultures, is thought to be a lucky charm attracting wealth and abundance.
This motif was intentionally chosen to bring good fortune and well wishes to all guests at Hotel Savoy. The festive spirit continues across the hotel, courtesy of Sebastian Flowers Italy who skillfully marries garlands and floral arrangements, creating synergy with Aquazzura’s message and dressing-up the elegant staircase for the occasion.
“It’s a pleasure to celebrate the holidays with Hotel Savoy and its guests” says Aquazzura’s Creative Director and Co-Founder Edgardo Osorio. “We have carefully crafted decorations so that guests can feel the magic and excitement of this special season during their stay in our city. Aquazzura would like to take this special opportunity to wish everyone happy holidays!”
