Founded in 1921, Florence, Italy, Guccio Gucci established a small business dedicated to fine leather and exotic skin handbags, shoes, gloves, and belts. What began as an entrepreneur's dream has evolved into an international fashion leader of excellence and tradition. From family owned to the crown jewel of the Kering fashion group Gucci has maintained the highest standards of design while embracing innovation and change.
Current Creative Director of Gucci, Alessandro Michele rose through the ranks to Senior Accessory Designer where he reimagined & reinvigorated iconic bags such as Miss GG, Jackie & Miss Bamboo. In 2015 he took the head design role masterfully pushing women's ready-to-wear, menís collections, fragrances & more into a fresh, new, androgynous direction, igniting critical and commercial success.
