Guccio Gucci – the founder of Gucci, when working in London, started thinking about bags in a very random way.
Being famous for luxury handbags and suitcases, but in the early days, Gucci was only truly known for creating fashionable products for the enjoyment of the aristocracy.
Gucci is a famous Italian fashion brand, but the inspiration for the founding of this delicate and noble brand comes from the capital of the fog country.
Long time working at London’s Savoy Hotel in the early years of the 20th century, a place for the elite and wealthy people in England, Gucci discovered something unexpected at the time. That was ladies and gentlemen may have expensive outfits but they lack suitcases and bags, which are necessary for long-term trips.
And so, Guccio Gucci, at the age of 40, a young age to start a new and desperate thing, said goodbye to England, returned to his home town of Florence, Italy and opened a shop selling suitcases and bags.
Grasping the taste of leather lovers at the time, Gucci designed high-end products for the elite only. All products are handcrafted by Tuscany artists from Italy.
However, Gucci is only known for creating fashionable products for the enjoyment of the aristocracy, which is a riding hobby. Riding a horse needs neatness and convenience.
Among many suppliers of horse riding products, Gucci is the winner, with designs tone sur tone from saddles, shoes, gloves, bags and suitcases. The simple brown tones with luxurious leather material, made the elite in Italy and European countries enchanted.
Appearing in the 30s of the 19th century, Gucci Tote bags were Gucci’s first designs on the road to creating their own products for Women.
Since then, Gucci has gradually become the symbol of fashion.
