gucci priests a garden of delights
This summer Gucci presents its Decor collection in a whimsical and majestic “garden of delights”, photographed by a visual artist Max Siedentopf. The Italian fashion house turns to the pristine, orderly geometries of classic French landscape design, riffing on their neat, familiar hedges and topiary with leafy sculptures representing pieces from the collection. Well titled A garden of delightsthis modern play on the romantic landscape was born out of creative director Alessandro Michele’s fascination with nature.

a botanical ambiance for gucci décor
In Gucci Decor Campaign A garden of delightsthe objects are associated with massive topiaries in the shape of a teapot and an armchair sculpted by Studio Andy Hillman to give an eccentric and dreamlike atmosphere. The series was imagined by the fashion housecreative director of Alessandro Michele and led by photographer and visual artist Max Siedentopf. The massive collection itself includes botanical porcelain tea sets, double-sided cushions, metal candles with lids, and jacquard armchairs. Together, the objects recall the opulence of Decorative Arts with their accents of passementerie and intricate floral motifs.
Along with regal table settings and delicate trinkets, a series of wallpapers feature both floral and retro geometric designs, some rendered in a tactile linen texture.
