An exclusive look at Gucci's first home-decor collection

Creative director Alessandro Michele has transferred the patterns, colours and decorative tropes from his fashion collections onto furniture, furnishings and crockery

When it comes to Gucci's creative director Alessandro Michele's creations, anything goes. Strong colour combinations are used on the same canvas as striking prints, and rich fabrics are offset by unorthodox motifs. And soon his distinctive aesthetic will be adorning our interiors.

The Italian fashion house has just announced that it is launching a home decor line – an eccentric range of cushions, candles, trays, chairs, tables, screens and wallpaper that is as brilliantly outlandish as one might expect.

“The idea is not to prescribe a particular decorative look, but to provide elements that allow for living spaces to be customised,” says an official statement from the fashion house. “[Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele’s] collection of items for interiors is intended to allow for a flexible and personal approach to decoration, bringing an accent of Gucci’s contemporary romanticism into the home.”

Gucci Décor will be launched from September with a progressive roll-out in international stores and online at Gucci.com.
