The label’s founder, Guccio Gucci was born in Florence, Tuscany. He moved to London to work as a porter at the famous Savoy Hotel, and it was there that he fell in love with the luxurious suitcases that arrived with the wealthy hotel guests.

Inspired, he returned to Florence where he learned the trade for himself while working for a local luggage brand there. By 1921, Guccio had developed enough of his own style and ideas and he opened his eponymous leather goods store in the heart of the city.

In the beginning, Gucci mostly produced luggage, but the brand also became known for its leather horse-riding goods, such as saddles, reins and bridles. This equestrian history is constantly referenced in modern-day pieces from the label—you’ve undoubtedly noticed the horse-bit motif (loafers and handbags often feature this hardware) and the red and green stripe that nods to saddlery details.

About Gucci*

With beginnings at the end of the 19th century, the Gucci company became one of the world’s most successful manufacturers of high-end leather goods, clothing, and other fashion products.

The company made handbags of cotton canvas rather than leather during World War II as a result of material shortages. The canvas, however, was distinguished by a signature double-G symbol combined with prominent red and green bands.

In 2013, it was announced that Beyoncé Knowles would work with Salma Hayek and Frida Giannini on the campaign that aims to spread female empowerment. The campaign, which aired on February 28, was set to new music by Knowles. A concert for the cause took place on June 1, 2013 in London and included other acts like Ellie Goulding, Laura Pausini, Florence and the Machine, Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora.
