Guccio Gucci

As you indulge in the creative chatter, today we also celebrate the legacy of Guccio Gucci, the founder of one of the most profitable Italian designer houses today. Born on March 26, 1881 to an Italian leather goods maker, Gucci was a porter at the Savoy hotel in London when he first became enamoured with the glamorous suitcases that the guests arrived with from all over the globe. The first Gucci shop was founded in Florence, 1921, and it is from there that the legendary history of Gucci and his company really took off.

In the beginning, Gucci’s main business was making saddles and other accessories for horseback riders, always crafted from the finest of Italian leathers. His designs continued to gain popularity as he expanded further into the world of accessories, with English aristocrats becoming major fans of the up-and-coming label.

Even today, this equestrian flair can be seen in Gucci’s modern creations, including the beloved horse-bit detail, and the red-and-green woven stripe, inspired by saddle details. In honour of his birthday, join BAZAAR as we take a look back at the milestones that have made what Gucci is today.
