Weddings Reimagined: Introducing Civil, By Bo & Luca
Inspired by the charming ’70s era and its romance – we are delighted to introduce our latest collection, Civil, by Bo & Luca. Crafted for the daring romantic with an affinity for luxury and staying true to our signature craftsmanship.
Experiencing a shift towards more intimate celebrations in the last few months, we have carefully crafted this collection hinting at the wordly ‘oh so cool’ brides of the ’70s. Think Bianca Jagger and Margaux Hemingway; the movers and shakers of what we call civil ceremonies.
This meant reinventing and adapting to unexpected times while trying to embrace its uncertainty. Besides, what can be more romantic than getting married in your backyard garden surrounded by your dearest family and friends? Think of it as weddings reimagined most creatively – amidst the unknown there is still so much joy to be had.
Our creative director Shannon Pittman sat down to lend her insights into civil weddings and Civil, by Bo & Luca.
What is the inspiration behind Civil, by Bo & Luca?
Civil by Bo & Luca was created as an extension of the B&L brand, layers of satin that move with the body, with a minimalist, poetic feel. Our brand story is always romantic and has a hint of nostalgia. We are not known for sexy, skin-revealing pieces but pride ourselves on designs that are sophisticated and elegant. Although the pieces are minimal in fabrication, we wanted them to move beautifully and for the wearer to feel effortlessly elegant.
Most loved iconic civil wedding?
Jane Birkin & Serge Gainsbourg.
Favorite Civil, by Bo & Luca piece?
The FLORENCE gown is my favorite piece, very fun and feminine and feels amazing to wear.
What do you love most about civil weddings and micro weddings?
The intimacy and how precious the moments feel when you are surrounded only by a few of your select loved ones.
What fabrications were used for this collection and why?
We used a blend of very soft silky, satins. Although minimal, they have a slight satin sheen to add a glamorous feel.
Do you think micro weddings are here to stay?
I feel that micro weddings have been around for a long time and you don’t often hear about them because they are more exclusive and private. Some couples want to celebrate their love in a private setting and others want to be surrounded by all of their loved ones, each is equally as beautiful.
What advice would you give brides during this unknown time?
Don’t stress about the details, your special day will come. Still, dream big if this is what you have always wanted and plan ahead. If you choose to do something on a smaller scale, this can also be equally as amazing, and just because it’s a smaller intimate ceremony it does not mean you can’t add precious details to make it special.
