Gucci has officially opened a haute new location at Copley Place in Boston, which reflects the new design concept, the brainchild of Creative Director Alessandro Michele. The sprawling 4,500 square foot luxury space offers style mavens and trendsetting Bostonians a glimpse of cutting edge fashions for both men and women. Here, you will find everything from ready-to-wear apparel, shoes, handbags, luggage and small leather goods for women to leather goods, jewelry, watches and accessories for men.

The stylish Back Bay boutique located on Mall Level 1 (location A near BOSS Hugo Boss) has truly redefined luxury for the 21st century. From the moment you step inside this beautiful space, you’ll quickly be captivated by the familiar Italian designer’s influential and modern approach to fashion. From the impeccable craftsmanship to the quality designs, the fashion house’s attention to detail can be seen throughout the store.

The interior design of this luxe shopping mecca is surprisingly discreet, but impressionable. For example, keep an eye out for soft elements like sumptuous velvet armchairs and vintage Oriental rugs layered over each other for a textured effect that offset harder industrial surfaces and marble polychrome inlays to create three-dimensional effects on the floors. The designer’s approach to contemporary luxury can be seen not just with the employment of beautiful materials, but also through the simplistic space.

In keeping with the elegant eclecticism that Gucci’s haute collections are so well known for, the Boston location also combines traditional and modern with industrial and romantic. Travel is a central theme at this haute new store’s design, referencing the history of the House, specifically through the use of the aesthetic codes of luggage – and the trunk in particular – to create decorative elements. Other stylish elements found here include rich fabrics that adorn the rooms, metal plates with a burnished geometric pattern that sit alongside carpets in cherry red and peacock blue, round tables to offset rectangular ones, and varnished iron wall finishes that complement pale pink matelassé or peacock blue velvet used for upholstery and fitting rooms.

Gucci joins more than 50 other luxury retail brands in Copley Place, featuring the haute couture designs of Christian Louboutin (which opened its first Boston location here last year), Neiman Marcus, Barneys New York, Tiffany & Co., Louis Vuitton, Christian Dior, Ferragamo (remember Patriots Rob Gronkowski crashed the opening?) and Versace. Gucci is located at 100 Huntington Avenue in Boston.
