Founded in 1921 by Guccio Gucci in Florence, Italy, Gucci has evolved from a small leather goods shop to a global luxury powerhouse.
The brand's signature double-G logo and horsebit motif gained iconic status over the years. After Guccio's passing, his sons expanded the business internationally. The 1990s saw a revival under Tom Ford, who introduced provocative designs. Subsequent creative directors like Frida Giannini and Alessandro Michele maintained Gucci's allure by blending tradition with innovation. Today, Gucci is celebrated for its eclectic, maximalist approach, making it a symbol of contemporary luxury and cultural relevance.
Gucci has been a subsidiary of French multinational corporation Kering since 2004.
