FASHION HOUSE

ELLE Decoration (UK) - - Escape | News -

Gucci in the Peak District? Yes, re­ally. Chatsworth House, one of Eng­land’s grand­est fam­ily homes, is ramp­ing up its style sta­tus with ‘House Style: Five Cen­turies of Fashion at Chatsworth’, a block­buster ex­hi­bi­tion spon­sored by the Ital­ian brand. Amer­i­can Vogue’s Hamish Bowles will delve into the Devon­shire ar­chive and tell the sar­to­rial sto­ries that have un­folded un­der the house’s roof over the last 500 years. Diver­sity reigns supreme: a Givenchy bolero that the cur­rent Duchess wore on her wed­ding day and the last Duke’s tapestry slip­pers will be dis­played along­side garbs by Christo­pher Kane, Dior and Vivi­enne West­wood. And, of course, vis­i­tors can also en­joy Chatsworth’s gilt Baroque ar­chi­tec­ture, daz­zling state rooms and spec­tac­tu­lar art col­lec­tion. 25 March–22 Oc­to­ber (chatsworth.org).
