Gucci has transformed The Savoy London’s Royal Suite into a reflection of its fantastical fashion world.
The story dates back 100 years ago when the iconic fashion house’s founder, Guccio Gucci, was initially employed at The Savoy as a young luggage porter and liftboy. Through this experience, Gucci gained direct access to the tastes and needs of traveling customers, escorting them from floor to floor. Seeing the luxurious luggage and elegant clothes of guests was a major impetus in his desire to start his own leather goods company, shortly after his return to Italy from London.
The suitefeatures furniture, furnishings and decorative items from the Gucci Décor collection, as well as art and antiquities from Christie’s that have been carefully chosen to complement the aesthetic.
“I’m so delighted that The Savoy is partnering with Gucci in such a creative way in the fashion house’s centenary year. It’s wonderful to bring alive our shared history to contemporary audiences, and we’re excited to unveil a transformed Royal Suite, as well as providing guests with charming experiences and exceptional service that befit two brands with such global renown.”—Franck Arnold, Managing Director at The Savoy
All of the items in the Royal Suite added by Gucci and Christie’s will be available for purchase; making the Royal Suite an exceptionally exclusive showroom, as well as one of the most luxurious hotel suites in London, with its parade of rooms spanning the entire length of the fifth floor, giving unrivaled views over The Thames. The Royal Suite offering includes a dedicated butler, use of The Savoy’s Rolls Roy
