Gucci was founded in Florence in 1921 and this year celebrates 90 years of the Gucci brand. In honour of the birthday, there will be a Gucci 1921 collection and we’ll see a Gucci bag revival of some of the Italian accessories and classic bags from the brand over the years, including the Jackie (named after Jackie O), Horsebit and Bamboo.
The collection will have a new trademark “G.GUCCI Firenze 1921″ which will feature across the new range, and it will be available in select Gucci stores from June this year. The collection includes the New Bamboo, New Jackie (pictured above) and Horsebit Chain handbags in leather and crocodile skin, and old-school loafers and moccasins celebrating summer. The men’s accessory range will include two vintage-style travel suitcases in Gucci’s classic Diamante pattern.
Gucci creative director Frida Giannini says: “Throughout this year we are celebrating Gucci’s anniversary in many different ways, and with this special commemorative collection I wanted to pay homage to the icons, craftsmanship and luxury materials for which the House has become renowned since its founding by Guccio Gucci in 1921. Each item in the collection tells a story, representing a chapter within the House’s rich narrative history.”
