Gucci

The House of Gucci, better known as simply Gucci, is one of the world’s preeminent luxury brands, recognized all over the world for its fashion innovation and impeccable Italian craftsmanship. Gucci was founded in 1921 as a  leather goods company and small luggage store in Florence by Guccio Gucci. Having spent years working in London’s Savoy Hotel, he had absorbed the refined aesthetic of English nobility, and introduced this classy sensibility in Italy with the master craftsmanship of Tuscan artisans.

Many of Guccio’s Italian clients were local horse-riding aristocrats, and their demand for riding gear led Gucci to develop its unique Horsebit icon and many other symbols of equestrian origin. Within a few years time, the label enjoyed growing success as it attracted a sophisticated international clientele on vacation in Florence seeking out the equestrian-inspired collection of bags, trunks, gloves, shoes and belts. In the years to come, Gucci products quickly became renowned for timeless design and were cherished by iconic movie stars and figures of elegance.

The products of Gucci continue to be internationally renowned not only for their Italian craftsmanship, but also for their unique style and designs. Every Gucci piece carries with it close to a century’s worth of artisanal quality and unparalleled design.
