These days, it’s pretty obvious that nobody’s doing it better than Gucci (and by ‘it’ I mean making me want to drop crazy sums of money on trendy clothes that will loudly scream ‘2017’ in about three years time). But the only thing potentially cooler than rocking those furry-ass loafers with some crazy floral dress is wearing these ubiquitous items inside your similarly Gucci-bedecked pad. That’s right, the inimitable Alessandro Michele is sick of designing for mere human bodies, and has thus moved on to home decor.
The line, which will be available in September, includes cushions, candles, chairs, wallpaper, screens, and more. And guess what? If you’ve got $190 to drop on a candle, you can afford the cheapest thing in the collection! The silk screens, meanwhile, which are covered in psychedelic tessellated patterns, one of which involves pink octopi, will set you back a cool $30,000. Which, hey, at least makes this Gucci bag that I deeply covet seem like a very reasonable purchase.
Gucci fanatics will appreciate the fact that items like throw pillows and wallpapers include motifs similar to those that have come down the runway, including the bumblebee, snake, and cat head. News of the new line was announced last week on Gucci’s Instagram account, where they also released a series of drawings by artist Alex Merry depicting what the products will look like (spoiler: adorable).
“The idea is not to prescribe a particular decorative look, but to provide elements that allow for living spaces to be customized,” reads a press release. “[Michele’s] collection of items for interiors is also intended to allow for a flexible and personal approach to decoration, bringing an accent of Gucci’s contemporary romanticism into the home.” Which, sure, but it’ll also be damn good for making your slightly less fancy house guests jealous.
