The Savoy’s Royal Suite: A Gucci Wonderland

Ever since its inception, Gucci has seamlessly weaved the theme of travel into its narrative, drawing inspiration from the opulent world of luxury hotels and the cosmopolitan jet-setters who frequented them during the early 1900s.

Founder Guccio Gucci, with a hint of irony, pride, and self-awareness, introduced these motifs after his firsthand experience working at The Savoy. At a young age, Guccio served as a luggage porter and liftboy at this illustrious establishment, affording him a unique perspective into the desires and preferences of the well-traveled guests he assisted.

It was the sight of luxurious luggage and sophisticated attire that ignited his passion to establish his own leather goods company upon returning to Italy from his stint in London.

Aria Collection: Where Fashion Meets Hospitality

Fast forward a century, and The Savoy and Gucci are celebrating their intertwined history through a myriad of innovative collaborations, ranging from design elements to extraordinary guest experiences.

The close-knit relationship between these two icons came into focus during the unveiling of Gucci’s Aria Collection in April 2021, an event held exclusively at The Savoy. This collection paid homage to the hotel’s pivotal role in shaping Gucci’s legendary status, with subtle references woven into its designs and presentation.

Continuing their partnership, the next chapter sees The Savoy’s Royal Suite transformed into an embodiment of the Gucci universe. This metamorphosis includes the infusion of furniture, décor, and ornaments from the exquisite Gucci Décor collection. Meticulously chosen art and antiquities from Christie’s further enhance the aesthetic, harmonizing seamlessly with The Savoy’s rich design heritage.

Adrien Meyer, Global Head of Private Sales at Christie’s, expressed, “This is a splendid opportunity to collaborate with two iconic luxury brands and offer our Private Sales service to the esteemed guests of this illustrious London hotel. At Christie’s, the ultimate luxury is being immersed in art. In partnership with Gucci, The Savoy’s Royal Suite is poised to become London’s most exclusive haven.”
