Gucci is a name synonymous with luxury in pop culture. The famed Italian fashion house’s flashy logomania and use of bold colours and prints proved a big hit on social media in the late 2010s. Gucci is at the forefront of modern fashion, boasting retro 1970s glamour and covetable appeal. Few brands have as many trademark staples as Gucci. From the Gucci horsebit buckle, classic loafers and innovative handbag designs, to the eye-catching green and red Gucci stripe, iconic interlocking GG logo and acclaimed GG canvas, Gucci’s branding is unmistakable.
Gucci has established itself as one of the best brands for customers shopping for glamorous products. However, it’s beginnings are more modest than most would think. Gucci began as a small leather goods store in Florence, Italy. The house’s founder, Guccio Gucci, found himself inspired by the flamboyant lives and style of the residents at a luxury London hotel where he worked. At his store site, Gucci sold luxurious leather accessories and equestrian equipment. The house’s equestrian roots can still be seen in it’s products today, most notably the famous horse-bit detail. In the 1930s, the brand set its sights on mass expansion and soon became a trailblazer of the fashion industry, incorporating a series of unorthodox material choices into its designs, such as bamboo and hemp.
When Alessandro Michele took over as creative director of the house in 2015, the brand needed reinvigorating. Michele injected the house with an eccentric and ostentatious, yet sleek and andrognous fervour, redefining the brand’s signature aesthetic. He is credited with reinventing Gucci, enthusing it with an air of retro 1970s glamour and covetable appeal. Under his direction, Gucci is at the forefront of modern fashion. The house has embraced its iconic print, akin to the likes of fellow fashion powerhouses Burberry and Louis Vuitton. Gucci is now known for its playful spirit and overly animated designs. The house’s floral and insect motifs, along with its dazzling fabrics continuously make it stand out at Fashion Week.
The house is responsible for pioneering some of the most popular handbag styles of all time, including the unconventional bamboo top handle and cult favourite hobo style, the Jackie bag. After its release in 1947, the Gucci Bamboo became a mainstay Gucci bag, inspiring a myriad of interactions, including a Gucci Bamboo backpack. The bamboo handle has since appeared on other popular Gucci handbags, such as the Diana Tote, Dionnysus and classic shopper styles. The Gucci Jackie has enjoyed an equally impressive level of success. The relaxed hobo style design worn casually over the shoulder is perhaps the most memorable handbag from the 1960s and 1970s. Named after First Lady and style icon Jackie O, the bag’s care-free and practical design made it the perfect style to accompany the wave of women’s liberation occurring at the time.
Due to the immense success of Gucci bags released in the previous century, the house has revived many of its past designs. Gucci launched the new Jackie 1961, named after the year of the bag’s original release. The Gucci Ophidia collection pays homage to vintage Gucci handbags, channeling key elements from past designs. All this further points to the popularity of vintage and second hand Gucci bags. Fashion devotees are constantly in search of vintage Gucci for sale and CSD is here to provide it!
