Ninety Years of Brilliant Bag-Making
Gucci was founded as a family-run leather accessories store in Florence, Italy in 1921. The popularity of the Gucci bag was apparent from day one. Guccio Gucci’s use of fine leather and keen eye for detail made his creations stand out, dominating every other handbag available. In a pre-WWII world Gucci began to grow, opening stores in Milan and Rome. The appeal of Gucci tote bags and handbags blossomed during the war, despite rationing and general war-time modesty. In 1953, the fashion house opened the doors of its first US store, which was sadly the same year Guccio Gucci passed away. Today, Gucci shoppers, totes and clutches remain the pinnacle of elite style under the creative eye of Alessandro Michele.
