Fashion fans pay attention because life is about to get a whole lot more Gucci. Taking to Instagram, the fashion house has announced the launch of Gucci Décor – an eclectic collection of homeware items which customers can use to dress their own spaces.
As you’d expect the debut range encompasses creative director Alessandro Michele’s magpie attitude with everything from cushions and candles to chairs and wallpaper featuring a multitude of design motifs we have come to associate with his collections.
And, much like his DIY approach to fashion this is range that invites patrons to customise their living spaces with highly decorative items.
Fragrant candles and incense trays represent the lowest end of the price spectrum, costing approximately $190 (£145) with four different scents available: Inventum (a blend of damask rose and Taif rose); Fumus (birch mingled with orange leaves and beeswax); Herbosum (the fresh scent of tomato leaves mixed with basil and lemongrass); and Esotericum (the bitter aroma of Seville oranges, intertwined with jasmine, leather and salt).
Other smaller porcelain pieces of the collection are produced by Richard Ginori, the renowned Florentine company founded in 1735. Here, Gucci’s famed garden florals, ‘eye’ design, butterflies and bees are rendered on everything from crockery to candle holders.
Similarly, sumptuous cushions are decorated with designs like roses, snakes and tigers and, while some are trimmed with tassels, all come with contrasting fronts and backs.
Finally, for those wanting to make a serious Gucci statement, the fashion house is also launching a range of unconventional wallpapers that come in silk, vinyl and paper. Designs include a postcard motif taken from the pre-fall 2017 collection and a floral pattern from fall/winter 2015-16.
