House of Gucci: Discover the Film’s Insatiable Style
The Stunning Mansion
In the film, Aldo Gucci (played by Al Pacino), the grand patriarch of the family, lives in one of Lake Como’s most iconic mansions. If we go back to the 17th century, it is clear that Villa Balbiano has popularly become a mandatory stopover, particularly for members of high society. Thus, memorable banquets and balls took place here.
Four centuries later, it has not lost its brilliant status, as it is a gem in Italy. So, Villa Balbiano is still very much associated with glamour.
We cannot refer to this palace without analyzing in detail all the design and works of art present in it. There are six luxurious suites. Also noteworthy is the extensive garden, which was even the reason for an award.
In fact, its interiors are iconic and relate to the history of art and architecture. Note that Cardinal Durini once resided in this space, acquiring a veritable collection of works of art.
Currently, the house is filled with antique furniture from auctions at Sotheby’s and Christie’s. There are pieces of furniture worthy of the nobility, such as paintings. The suites, decorated by Jacques Garcia, who gave his touch of innovation and modernization. Some materials stand out, such as marble and ostentatious crystals.
AND IT’S FOR RENT! That’s right, you read it right: the house can be rented on Airbnb. So, you can spend the night at the house where the iconic scenes of this popular movie were shot. Reservations for the house became available on December 6th for a one-night stay in March 2022.
The Irreverent Fashion Looks
The production directed by Ridley Scott has very irreverent looks. The entire wardrobe of the movie is wonderful, especially Lady Gaga as Patrizia.
Taking into account the family portrayed in the movie, the looks could only be extravagant. An example of this is the costumes from evening dresses, huge jewels, and the hair trends of the 70s, 80s, and 90s.
Janty Yates is the costume designer and in an interview, she revealed that she created more than 500 looks for the film. In this way, it was she who recreated a wardrobe worthy of one of the most luxurious families in the fashion industry. The Gucci Museum in Florence also inspired some looks throughout the film.
Everything has been thought out to detail. Lady Gaga’s character started by wearing more feminine outfits while dating Maurizio Gucci, one of the main heirs of the brand. However, after getting married, the clothes were more striking, thus illustrating the luxury life. She had an extravagant style, using pieces of jewelry such as large earrings.
Lady Gaga didn’t repeat any of her looks throughout House of Gucci, that is, there were 65 changes of clothes!
To say House of Gucci’s set and costumes are full of style and creativity is easy! Enjoy!
