For its 100-year anniversary Gucci is going to celebrate in style. Rather, the brand will allow its patrons to celebrate in style, comfort, and of course, luxury. The Italian origin brand has tied up with The Savoy in London to bring an experience that is only true-to-heart luxury enthusiasts would relish.
The Savoy’s Royal Suite has been reimagined to own the centenary year, and will reflect the love and passion of the brand’s founder, Guccio Gucci.
The connection goes more than a century ago when Guccio worked as a porter and lift boy at The Savoy. The young lad absorbed the styles and fashion he observed in tourists and hotel guests worldwide. Rich with these insights, he returned to Italy and founded Gucci in 1921 in Florence, first as a brand that sold leather accessories for horseback riders.
One of the oldest Italian luxury brands today, Gucci has had a long journey, becoming a household name in the luxury segment – from bags, apparel to perfumery and décor. All of which you will get a glimpse of and have the chance to purchase when you book into the Royal Suite.
To make things more exclusive, auction house Christie’s will bring its Private Sales service, adding to the furniture, furnishings, and decorative items from the Gucci Décor collection.
The 2,852-sq ft suite is located on the fifth floor with stunning views of the River Thames and other London landmarks.
The price for a night at the Royal Suite is $22,000 and will include breakfast, a range of Gucci gifts and amenities, and a private visit to the Gucci boutique in London in the hotel’s Rolls Royce.
The Savoy-Gucci partnership held its first collaboration in April when Gucci revealed its Aria Collection with the hotel’s backdrop. The duo is also set to reveal two more initiatives for later this year. So you know which space to watch.
