Fashion aficionados, prepare to delight. Gucci has unveiled a homeware line, under the name of Gucci Décor, which it describes as "an eclectic collection of items with which customers can dress their own spaces.”
Landing in stores and online from September, the range is inspired by creative director Alessandro Michele's much celebrated fashion collections - bringing his signature bright, bold patterns and floral and animal motifs to teapots, furniture, cushions, crockery, wallpaper (in silk, vinyl and paper), silk screens and more. Candles and incense trays, costing around $190, will be the lower price point of the range, while at the other end of the spectrum the beautifully printed silk screens - featuring pineapple and pink and blue octopus designs - reach almost $30,000. The collection will not be given a dedicated space when it arrives in stores, instead being spread out and integrated with clothes and accessories. "The idea is not to prescribe a particular decorative look, but to provide elements that allow for living spaces to be customised," the house said.
Smaller pieces of the collection have been created with Richard Ginori, the historic Florentine porcelain company, and include patterned crockery, candle holders, and small incense holders featuring distinct patterns such as a green and white Herbarium decoration and animals from the Gucci garden, like bees, butterflies and stag beetles.
