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