Gucci Falacer Lurex GG Sneaker with Web History
Founded in 1921, the Gucci luxury fashion brand established its roots in Florence, Italy by Guccio Gucci. The brand started with manufacturing leather goods such as handbags and shoes, which targets upper-class people. Due to the quality of its products, it wasn’t too long before the Gucci brand became one of the top luxury fashion labels worldwide.
The brand gained further recognition by adding footwear to its product range. Its collection of loafers has been well-received due to Gucci's impressive leather craftsmanship. Today, the brand is part of a global leader in luxury accessories and apparel, the Kering Group. Other notable brands under this group are Puma, Bottega Veneta, Alexander McQueen, Balenciaga, Volcom, and Stella McCartney.
Alessandro Michele, the brand's creative designer, released an updated silhouette for the loafer which exhibits the signature Gucci ornament on the shoe’s front. With the success of the revamped loafers, the company introduced the Gucci Ace collection which has floral designs, snakeskin and crocodile overlays, and the iconic red and green stripes of Gucci.
As of this time, Gucci has more than 500 shops worldwide, one of the testaments to its success in the luxury fashion business. One of the recent addition to its growing collection of shoes is the Gucci Falacer Lurex GG Sneaker with Web, which bears some resemblance to the Gucci Ace due to its contrasting colors.
