THE ECLEC­TIC

Gucci in­tro­duces Decor, its first home range, online – and it’s ev­ery­thing we ex­pect the brand’s of­fer­ings to be.

Herworld (Singapore) - - NEWS - – CH

Creative direc­tor Alessan­dro Michele has breathed not just new life but ir­re­press­ible joie de vivre into Gucci. The re­nais­sance con­tin­ues with his de­but home­ware line that ex­actly re­flects the Italian brand’s eclec­tic phi­los­o­phy: Wes An­der­son movie meets vin­tage sto­ry­book meets retro vul­ture.

The range runs the gamut from in­cense hold­ers (be­cause can­dles aren’t boho enough) and wooden high-backed chairs (which look like they’re right out of an 18th-cen­tury Euro­pean home) to the most charm­ing vel­vet cush­ions dec­o­rated with roses, quizzi­cal cats and slith­er­ing snakes. It also has porce­lain crock­ery pro­duced by renowned Floren­tine com­pany Richard Gi­nori, which has cre­ated fine hand­crafted porce­lain since 1735. The largest and prici­est items are silk fold­ing screens with tes­sel­lated de­signs such as blue and pink oc­to­puses.

Kitsch at its best.
