Gucci is synonymous with style and class and was one of the first brands to bring Italian elegance and Made in Italy products to global recognition. The brand was created in 1921, inspired by the elegance of English nobility and combined with the craftsmanship of fine Italian leather artisans. The first shop in Florence, Italy specialized in leather luggage, saddles and riding gear. Throughout the decades the company expanded into men’s and women’s ready-to-wear.
In the 1990’s the company is re-launched to global renown through a groundbreaking mix of tradition and innovation. Tom Ford became creative director in 1994 and infused the luxury brand with a sense of daring and provocation that resonated with celebrity and the fashion world.
