While working as a doorman at a luxury hotel in London, Guccio Gucci came to appreciate the wealthy clients' high-end bags. When he returned to Italy, he decided to launch his own brand of leather goods and accessories. In 1921, the Gucci Fashion House was born. The label's most recognizable symbols include the emblematic horsebit, the signature Double G and the iconic red and green Web Band.
When Guccio Gucci passed away in 1953, his three sons took over as heads of the Italian fashion house. Although the brand introduced its first ready-to-wear collection in the 1980s, its true success only came in the 1990s, when the young Porno Chic enthusiast Tom Ford became Gucci's Artistic Director. As of 2015, the label has been run by Alessandro Michele. The gifted designer quickly appropriated the brand's avant-garde codes and has been breathing new life into the collections through his cruelty-free, post-gender take on fashion.
Gucci Women's Sneakers
Among the luxury brand's best-selling shoes are the Gucci Women's Ace Leather Sneakers. Though this popular style now comes in a range of colors and fabrics, the white leather Ace sneaker remains a staple in any woman's wardrobe. The attention to detail on this casual sneaker makes it anything but basic. Emblazoned with Gucci's signature Web Band and iconic golden bee, these shoes are cool yet refined.
Always in fashion, these sneakers pair perfectly with a fitted short denim dress. Complete the look with the white leather GG Marmont Handbag, another must-have accessory from the Florence brand.
Gucci Women's Shoes
For comfort without sacrificing style, the Gucci rubber slide sandals for women certainly fit the bill. These designer slide sandals are distinguished by the attention brought to the brand's famous red and green Web Band and the "Original Gucci" logo on the strap. California summer is calling!
And to add a polished vibe to your outfit, slip into Gucci's Jordaan Horsebit Loafers in black leather. This women's shoe is a longtime favorite for its fine grain leather and delicate lines. The signature Gucci horsebit detail decorating the instep also adorns many of the most coveted Gucci boots.
