Guccio Gucci founded the House of Gucci in Florence in 1906 and his primary skill and creative talent was in the design and manufacturing of leather goods. He started out selling leather bags to horsemen in the 1920’s and progressed to deigning luxury luggage as his clients tended to move from equine transportation to horseless carriages. In 1938 Guccio Gucci opened their first retail shop on the Via Condotti in Rome and the brand became very successful and associated with Hollywood stars such as Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly following further store openings in Beverly Hills, Paris and Tokyo. It was in 1947 that the iconic leather handbag with a bamboo handle was launched which is still an incredibly popular Gucci product today. In the 1990’s, Tom Ford was responsible for escalating the brand back to its rightful sought after and exclusive status following it being sold in the 1980’s. Ford extended the product lines and since Frida Giannini’s arrival as Creative Director of Gucci in 2006, the brand range now includes a spectacularly stylish collection of leather accessories, perfumes, colognes, cosmetics, shoes and Gucci sunglasses. Gucci today is still one of the all time classic brands, whose products maintain that highly desired and exclusive appeal. It is often thought that if you own a piece of Gucci clothing or a Gucci accessory that certainly makes a statement about your style and status.
The latest news from Gucci is the announcement that in 2010 Gucci and luxury auction company Christie’s are collaborating to launch the ‘Gucci Collector: Presented by Christie’s’ which is the first online location for the appraisal of Gucci products whereby Gucci collectors can upload their vintage Gucci products and a team of Christie’s and Gucci experts will assess the value of the item. The owner will then have the option to sell the item back to Gucci or to list it at a future Christie’s auction.
The collection of Gucci sunglasses are the perfect representation of the luxurious essence of the brand – with stunningly dramatic frames and the use of bold yet elegant colours and patterns and added aesthetic features such as arm hinge buckle and Gucci logo detailing, a pair of these sunglasses will definitely assert your exquisite and refined taste in fashion. The perfect way to add that elite and much desired Gucci style to your look.
