Summary
From its founding in Florence in 1921 as luggage supplier to the elite to its modern standing as a purveyor of cult accessories and couture, the house of Gucci is a titan of the luxury fashion world. Over the last century Gucci's signature leather goods and decadent garments have elegantly combined the understated with the opulent, united under the covetable double G logo. Little Book of Gucci tells the story of the brand's beginnings as a luxury luggage and equestrian outfitter, recounting how the family overcame rifts and wartime hardship to be reborn as a giant of 1990s haute couture and, under Alessandro Michele's current stewardship, made its mark on streetwear and a new generation of fans. Over 100 images showcase Gucci's edgy yet sensual designs, confirming its place as the most influential label of our times
