Inside Gucci's Gorgeous New Home Décor Collection
With the launch of Gucci Décor, creative director Alessandro Michele brings his runway to the dining room, living room, and every room.
Two years ago Alessandro Michele made his debut at Gucci as creative director with prim, tea-length skirts, floppy bows, floral pantsuits, a swarm of sparkling bee and bird patches flying across plackets and collars, and instantly wait-listed fur slippers. It was a collection that brought about a narrative change at the house—and all of fashion. Call it nerdy, call it granny, be it Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II or The Royal Tenenbaums’ Margot, but the message was clear: Get kooky. With the launch this month of Gucci Décor at Gucci boutiques and Bergdorf Goodman, Michele broadens his madcap menagerie (all Décor motifs have appeared on the runway) to cushions, crockery, dining chairs, ceramics, wallpaper, and perhaps the new most wait-listed slipper in fashion—his upholstered slipper chair.
