The Gucci Effect

Posted by Ashley Horowitz on

GUCCI is undoubtedly one of the world’s most notable fashion brands. After all, when a label is so esteemed that its name now doubles as a catchy slang phrase (Did you know: “It’s all Gucci” is now interchangeable with “We’re good!”) - that brand has some serious clout.

The illustrious label, immediately recognizable by its signature logo of double interlocking G’s, is once again a favourite among the fashion elite, thanks to its current creative director, Alessandro Michele, a visionary, who took the helm in 2015.

Promoted as an “unknown” from within the company, Michele has proven himself a force since his appointment. He has led Gucci into what can only be deemed ‘a mega-surgence’, driving sales to a 50% increase in the fall of 2017, and bringing triple digit growth to the brand’s eCommerce sales.

All of this is a significant coup for the century-old label which has seen its share of highs and lows since those interlocking G’s first found their place on the radar of fashion elite.

Michele brought a new signature aesthetic to Gucci, breathing vibrant creativity into the tired brand. Introducing pops of youthful colour, a blurred gender aesthetic and a vintage flair, Michele was suddenly able to entice a broader and increasingly diverse audience to fall in love with his latest collections.

For those of us who have favoured the brand for decades, we know its quality craftsmanship and stylish leather are going nowhere. In fact, the brand even launched an Art Lab earlier this year, to serve as a futuristic space for the experimentation of leather goods and shoes.

Devout followers of Gucci will know that the brand has had many notable moments throughout history. There was the introduction of its first luggage collection in the 1920s (inspired by Guccio’s career [pre-fashion label], working as a porter at the Savoy hotel)... and the splashy reign of Tom Ford, who, as creative director , pushed the limits and sex appeal of the brand in the mid 90s.

Many times over, the label has won the hearts of the fashion world.. Alessandro Michele is continuing to push the limits of the label, exploring innovation and creative inspiration from all over the globe. So… if you weren’t a fan of the label before, have we convinced you?
