    Default Guccio Gucci and the Signature Double G logo


    Gucci was founded by Guccio Gucci in Florence during the early 1920's, around the same time as Prada and Balenciaga. Prior to creating the fashion brand, Guccio worked at a hotel in Paris during the late 19th century. Gucci's inspiration was lit up by all the amazing luggage and bags that guests would bring in, as well as the luxurious luggage makers of the time, such as H.J. Cave and Louis Vuitton. A couple years later, Guccio Gucci packed up his bags and returned to Florence and turned his dream idea into reality.

    Guccio Gucci opened his first workshop in Florence on Via delle Caldaie in 1921. Utilizing the skills of local Tuscan artisans, Gucci started with creating simple leather satchel bags for horsemen and then moved to making luxury luggage.

    It wasn't until his three sons Aldo Gucci, Vasco Gucci, and Rodolfo Gucci joined their father and expanded the company to include stores in Milan, Rome, as well as additional shops in Florence.

    What's interesting to me is that the House of Gucci has maintained using the iconic double G logo, while other classic luxury brands shorted up the name. Such as Yves Saint Laurent, who used iconic YSL signature medallion for years, and dropped the Yves completely from the brand. To be honest I was a little disappointed when Hedi Slimane changed the name from 'Yves Saint Laurent' to 'Saint Laurent Paris.' It's homage to the designer, the creator of the brand. Hopefully Gucci never gets rid of the double G logo hardware.. I don't care for the fabric print though

    Also, kinda off topic. HJ Cave and Sons (now HJ Cave International) was one of the earliest pioneers of the modern handbag (mid-1880's), and an inspiration to Guccio Gucci. Surprised that their website looks so dated. lol

    I love the look of the Soho GG but not a fan of the fabric G's.

    @Jennifer - did you ever check out the Soho Disco?
