Established in 1921 by Italian fashion designer Guccio Gucci, Gucci remains one of the oldest Italian fashion houses operating today. Currently headed by Italian businessman Marco Bizzarri, previously the CEO of Stella McCartney, Gucci’s legacy as one of the most recognisable luxury fashion brands is proven by their $13.66billion revenue, all from the original city it was established, Florence. Currently, the creative director is Alessandro Michelle who is the winner of several awards, was one of Time’s 100 most influential people and also looks a bit like Jesus.
Gucci has always been associated with glamour, providing the look of several famous movie stars in the 1950s. Today, Gucci remains a mainstay with the biggest Hollywood celebrities including Brad Pitt, Lil Wayne and Jared Leto. Gucci’s relationship with Hollywood isn’t going away soon as Ridley Scott, director of the Alien Franchise, is currently immortalising Gucci’s legacy with a movie starring Lady Gaga, Robert De Niro and Adam Driver.
Gucci’s brand association with the high life is so strong that the term ‘Gucci’ has made it into our everyday slang to mean everything is all right. It’s no mystery why several rap and hip-hop artists have included the brand into their look and also their art as Gucci’s brand has come to represent opulence and success.
