At 12:32pm on this excessively hot day in Los Angeles, we got word that Gucci plans to launch home decor in September of this year (officially the year of our Beyoncé twins), and a collective gasp echoed through our Slack channels.
After a brief fainting spell, we got back on our computers so we could share this most wondrous news with all of you.
According to the press release: “Gucci Creative Director Alessandro Michele’s philosophy for personalizing the home is therefore similar to his DIY program for clothes and accessories, where you are invited to customize pieces by applying decorative details. As with his magpie attitude to fashion design, the pieces in the new Gucci Décor collection display a multitude of design motifs now familiar from Michele’s catwalk. All the patterns, colors, designs and decorative tropes have been inspired by his fashion collections and are here reimagined for furniture, furnishings and crockery.” Yes please, we want it all.
The collection will contain porcelain, vanity seats, folding screens, wallpapers, candles and incense, and other decorative accents. We’re swooning over everything—check it all out, below.
"The smaller pieces of the collection are made of porcelain and are produced by Richard Ginori, the renowned Florentine company founded in 1735. Animals from the Gucci Garden—bees, butterflies and cockerel heads—are rendered in porcelain in 3D and are attached to the pots and their lids. There are also small incense holders where 3D stag beetles and bees support incense sticks," according to Gucci.
"Vivid metal trays introduce strong colors and prints; these can be used practically, or in the case of smaller circular models, as unorthodox ornaments for display."
