GUCCI SOUTH AFRICA
Guccio Gucci, as a porter, was inspired by the smart luggage he saw at the Savoy hotel in London and instantly decided that he wanted to be part of this fine craftsmanship. In 1921 he opened his first store that sold small leather goods and leather luggage in Florence, Italy. In the beginning, most of his clientele were the local horse-riding aristocrats and they mostly demanded riding gear. This is what led to Gucci developing the unique Horsebit icon that we know of today. Celebrities like Grace Kelly, Peter Sellers, and Audrey Hepburn made the brand synonymous with exquisite luxury. Jackie Kennedy, one of the famous fashion icons of the century was photographed numerous times carrying a Gucci bag. In her honor Gucci renamed one of the bags that she carried often, to “Jackie O”. It’s been more than 95 years since inception and the brand has flourished across the globe.
