Once upon a time, Gucci was born. And we’re smitten with this luxurious brand – it’s right up there on our perfume podium. So here’s everything you need to know about the history, fashion and fragrance…
Guccio Gucci is born in Florence, Italy. He’s the son of an Italian merchant.
As a teenager, Gucci becomes a lift boy at London’s Savoy Hotel. He’s inspired by the elegant upper class and their luggage and travel accessories, so returns to Italy to start designing his own.
He becomes well known for his leather craftsmanship and accessories, and opens his first shop in Florence.
The signature Gucci leather bag is created. Mmmm, dreamy.
Gucci dies and his family open Gucci stores in Paris, London, Beverly Hills, Palm Beach and Tokyo.
