Gucci Open Their Holiday Corner Shop at Selfridges

In a sea of reds, greens and golds, a little bit of pink goes a long way. Actually, a LOT of pink. We’re talking about the new Gucci Corner Shop that just opened on the ground floor of London’s Selfridges. This is what holidays look like in Alessandro Michele’s universe – metallic pink tinsel (which the Selfridges team describe as “angel hair”) with matching, flamingo-hued wooden furnishings and a set of best-dressed, bemused mannequins. They are awkwardly dancing a two-step, just like you did at all those dreadful prom nights. The only difference is – they’re wearing Gucci Resort 2019.

The holiday edition of the Corner Shop holds a lot of goodies exclusive to the space – the classic Marmont bag is here in some pretty unique colourways – shiny reds, golds and *wait for it* pink chevrons add fresh flair to the well-known silhouette, keeping it very much in-tune with the maximalist story. The embellished Flashtrek trainers are also available in new, metallic leather versions, while the brand’s now-signature lace tights come in every single colour and print imaginable. There’s also a whole Gucci homeware section with mugs, candles and cushions serving as probably the most luxurious stocking fillers you’ll see this year. Don’t mind us, we’ll be in the corner (Shop), throwing all our pink pounds at Gucci for the next two months. Our OOO is on.

The Gucci Corner Shop at Selfridges London is open until January 6th 2019.
