DIVINE TOURS LAUNCHES COUTURISTA TRAVEL TO PROVIDE LUXURY, FASHION-FOCUSED TRAVEL EXPERIENCES

Now Booking its First Tour: A Curated Visit to Tuscany in April 2019

Since 1996, DiVine Tours has been providing innovative luxury travel excursions throughout Italy. This spring, DiVine Tours will launch their newest extension: Couturista Travel – a travel experience personalized for connoisseurs of high-end fashion, gourmet cuisine, and luxury lifestyle. Couturista Travel is now booking for its April fashion-focused journey through Tuscany, followed by trips to Miami and Mexico later in the year.

The inaugural trip, entitled Tuscany Couture, includes stays in luxury fashion inspired hotels such as the Ferragamo-owned Gallery Art Hotel, exclusive vineyard tours, and VIP access and discounts at the world’s leading fashion retailers. Travelers will enjoy once-in-a-lifetime, exclusive, curated access to shops including Prada, Gucci, Armani, Ferragamo, Emilio Pucci, Sergio Rossi, Cavalli, Dolce & Gabbana, and many more.

Couturistas will begin their nine-day-long escape in Florence on April 6th, 2019 with a reception and welcome dinner. The following day will include an intimate inside look into the history of Italian Fashion, then & now, via private tours through the culture rich UNESCO City. Expert guides will then transport guests back to the 18th century via the Pitti Palace Costume Gallery, featuring rich collections that represent the evolution of fashion for didactic purposes.

The historical experiences will also include a visit to the Salvatore Ferragamo Museum. Dedicated to the life and work of the famed Italian shoe designer, the museum contains over 10,000 models of shoes and a variety of exhibits dedicated to the life and work of Ferragamo from the 1920’s until his death in 1960.

In addition to visits to Italy’s top historical fashion destinations and some of the most sophisticated shopping in the world, the Tuscany Couture trip includes visits to local artisan’s workshops, private trunk shows, dining at Florence’s most revered restaurants and guided visits to the iconic sites in historical cities throughout the Tuscan region.

“Tuscany Couture is the ideal vacation framed by the magic and elegance of Florence. Suited for the curious shopper or the fashion-savvy, a group of friends seeking the ultimate getaway, or even the mother-daughter duo looking for a bonding retreat,” said Myriam Angulo, co-founder of Couturista Travel. “There is so much to see in Florence and Chianti besides the traditional visits to see renowned art and wine tastings. Couturista organizers use their personal knowledge and intimate relationships to open the doors to artisan shoemakers, pop-up shops, flagship stores and everything in between. Tuscany Couture is the perfect trip for the inquisitive, divine traveler.”

Tuscany Couture’s $6,999 pp fee includes the complete land program with transportation, deluxe hotel accommodations, English-speaking guides, daily breakfast buffets, welcome and farewell dinners, shopping tours, museum entrances, winery visits, and many more activities for travelers looking to do it all.

With some days planned out and others that allow Couturistas to explore suggested sites on their own, each traveler has the ability to mold their vacation to fit their every want and desire. There are also unique extension options for those who want to extend their stay in Italy with opportunities to spend three additional days in the North or South of Florence.

Following the trip to Tuscany, Couturista Travel will offer innovative programs in the Magic City that is Miami with two distinct themes: Exploration of Art and Curated Shopping; as well as an opportunity to explore and shop Mexico later in the year.

BORIS & HORTON × MANHATTAN’S DOG-FRIENDLY CAFÉ

BORIS & HORTON, MANHATTAN’S FIRST DOH-APPROVED DOG-FRIENDLY CAFÉ, IS NOW OPEN IN THE EAST VILLAGE

Human and canine residents of New York are getting a special treat! Dog-friendly café Boris & Horton has opened its doors, operating seven days a week at the corner of Avenue A and 12th Street in downtown Manhattan.

Boris & Horton is an upscale café that features food & beverage from beloved local vendors including City of Saints Coffee Roasters, Murray’s Cheese, and Balthazar. Specialties include pup-centric latte art, vegan and vegetarian fare and gluten free options, local craft beer, wine by the glass and a signature blend called The Boris Brew, with hints of dark chocolate and roasted marshmallows.

The layout of Boris & Horton’s prime corner location means that with or without a canine companion, the space has room for everyone. Working within Department of Health guidelines, the café is split into two distinct areas – the coffee bar, which is for humans only, and the dog side, which welcomes people and their pets.

Those who come by themselves with a dog will order their drinks and food from Boris & Horton’s 12th Street walk-up window, and then head to the dog side, which features café style seating, boutique pet merchandise and a photo booth. For guests visiting with dogs and a human companion, one person can grab a table on the dog side while the other heads into the coffee bar through a vestibule connection, to pick up food & beverage.

For guests who don’t own a dog, but are seeking a furry fix, Boris & Horton will host frequent adoption events with their rescue partners on weekends.

The flagship Boris & Horton is located at 195 Avenue A in New York, New York. For more information and updates, continue to visit www.borisandhorton.com.

ABOUT BORIS & HORTON

The idea for Boris & Horton was born in the summer of 2016 when father and daughter duo Coppy Holzman and Logan Mikhly walked their rescue dogs to grab coffee and noticed all of the dogs tied up outside coffee shops waiting for their owners. They immediately began working on a creative solution. Moreso than simply wanting a gimmicky locale that customers would tire of, the two ideated on how to create a lasting business that would keep people – and their dogs – perpetually coming back for quality culinary options within a comfortable, welcoming atmosphere. An introduction to City of Saints Coffee Roasters kicked off a partnership that everyone at Boris & Horton is thrilled to bring to Manhattan’s East Village, and beyond.

This East Village location is the first of several conveniently-located neighborhood spots throughout New York. The next target expansion market is Los Angeles. Boris & Horton is privately financed, but actively exploring financial partnerships based on first-to-market viability and strong interest in the brand.

David Yurman Announces Opening Of Chicago Boutique On Michigan Avenue

Situated on Chicago’s Magnificent Mile, the new David Yurman boutique has a two-story historical façade that was maintained and restored to its original condition. Conceived by the Yurmans, the boutique reflects the brand’s aesthetic and the family’s unique artistic expression. The entrance lobby features a heritage wall that visually narrates the Yurmans’ journey from art to jewelry with examples of David’s early sculptures and wearable art pieces alongside more current designs.

The boutique is 3,250 square feet and the store’s interior was inspired by the colors of the brand’s most iconic gemstones and the hues in Sybil Yurman’s paintings hung throughout the space. These subtle shades were introduced sparingly in the boutique through the use of rich fabric upholstery covering various vintage and custom-made furnishings.

The store’s focal point is the central display column, featuring six cylindrical vitrines placed around a pillar of metal rods, reminiscent of the metal strands used in the crafting our jewelry. This dynamic feature acts as a focal display for our most iconic pieces, and invites patrons to meander through the space. In the main area, violet motifs that were hand-applied over white gold leaf on decorative panels offer a subdued elegance.

David Yurman Chicago Boutique Interior

Other distinct features include a men’s jewelry area and a private salon. The men’s area has a distinctly masculine feel created through the use of darker materials and found objects. Vintage furniture and decorative elements alongside simple, natural materials are a nod to Evan Yurman’s creative workspace, Noumenon, in New York.

During the opening month, David Yurman will join EXPO CHICAGO as a first-time sponsor with a special exhibition located in the VIP Collector’s Lounge. The exhibition, The Voyage From Art to Jewelry, running from September 13th– 17thwill feature iconic and new collections, as well as David Yurman’s earliest designs and sculptures.

NY — July 5, 2017

Cellini Jewelers and Greubel Forsey are presenting an exhibition that illustrates the celebrated Swiss atelier’s evolution since its 2004 debut. Open to the public from July 10 to 24, the “20 Calibres Retrospective Exhibition” will be held in Cellini’s boutique at 509 Madison Avenue. This special engagement offers collectors a rare opportunity to experience Greubel Forsey timepieces firsthand. The featured pieces spotlight a number of the company’s greatest achievements and span its entire collection, from the extraordinary Grande Sonnerie unveiled earlier this year to the Double Tourbillon 30° — the first calibre the brand ever created.

Highlights of the upcoming exhibition include:

Cellini’s NYC boutique is open Monday to Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
