Fiat recently announced the arrival of its newest limited edition 500-series car inspired by Italian fashion house Gucci. Set to hit the streets for the first time during New York Fashion Week, the Fiat 500 by Gucci features retro red and green Gucci stripes on the side and an interlocking ‘G’ symbol on the wheels. While curiously (and enviously) scouring Gucci’s website for more information on their new automobile venture, I became entranced by their Women’s Fall/Winter 2011-2012 fashion collection. Had I stepped into the ’70s? (I’ve always wanted to experience the Disco era!) We’re talking flare, fringe, suede, miniskirts and short fur jackets. So I started thinking … what home decor and furnishings would best represent 70s-style Gucci? It didn’t take my imagination very long to create my idea of the perfect Gucci-inspired styleboard with the help of 1st Dibs.
All from 1st Dibs: 1. 1970′s Italian Porcelain Horse Sculpture 2. Walnut and Leather Sling Sofa 3. Lightolier Nickel-Plated Sputnik Chandelier 4. Modernist Rocker/Club Chair and Ottoman 5. 1970′s Gucci Leather Mirror 6. Low-Table With Brass Antelope Heads in the Manner of Chervet 7. Pierre Cardin Table Lamp
What do you think? Did I hit it right on the nail with the ornate and slightly over-the-top pieces with gold or brass accents? And leather. You can’t forget the leather. What would you add or subtract from my Gucci-inspired styleboard?
