Gucci’s tigers, snakes and kittens are breaking free from the wardrobe. Alessandro Michele, the creative talent behind Gucci’s marvellously flamboyant collections for the last two years, has extended his scope of design to include a new homewares collection – and it’s every bit as desirable as the ready-to-wear.
We never knew how badly we wanted our sweaters to match our chairs – until now.
The collection is available now and includes cushions embroidered with wild and domestic cats (a Gucci signature), scented candles presented in gorgeous jars you’ll keep forever, whimsical incense trays, chairs with embroidered seats, fabulous folding screens (the height of boudoir glamour), opulent printed wallpaper, metal trays, and metal folding tables.
If you’ve ever been to a Gucci runway show, you’ll be familiar with the cushions that have been known to appear as gifts on the front row, starring a menagerie of animals that have become familiar Gucci motifs.
January is the perfect time to refresh your home. It’s freezing outside, so embrace your inner hermit in style by enlivening your home with a few playful pieces from the Gucci Décor collection and then doing absolutely nothing in the most luxurious loungewear imaginable.
Gucci Décor available at the Gucci boutique, 18 Sloane St, SW1X 9NE.
