Gucci Signature Slip-On History
Founded by Guccio Gucci in 1921, Gucci is among the world’s well-known luxury brands. Operations for this Italian company exclusively began in Florence, and it was reckoned to be the highest-selling brand in its time. The brand acquired high and positive local acclaims. In the mid-1950s, Guccio’s two sons then brought the brand to New York City which was the first Gucci office outside Italy. It then led the company to its international status. Gucci came to be New York’s elites’ go-to brand which made it to be the “status symbol of the rich and famous.”
During the 1960s up until the 1980s, internal issues were met by the house of fashion which led it to its investors’ accession. Tom Ford and Dawn Mello were the two remarkable names that were behind the rebirth of the Gucci brand. Both Ford and Mello were able to restore and maintain the solid reputation of Gucci in the fashion industry.
Alessandro Michele, an Italian designer, is the brand’s current creative director. He was said to be the one responsible for bringing the youth vibe into the brand’s latest collections. These youthful characteristics were also applied to the brand’s sneaker collection.
The Gucci Signature Slip-On features the brand’s signature heat debossed leather that displays a defined print which gives a firm touch. The simplistic design of the sneaker brings out its appeal, and it is offered in two colorways of red and black.
