Gucci is era-defining in its appeal, continuing to weave an innovative thread through its revered runway shows and, in turn, women's wardrobes across the globe. Always driving forward, yet with a respect for its past, Gucci’s foundation lies in key House codes from the archives – think signature webbing on women’s Gucci trainers, logo hardware on Gucci sunglasses and re-imagined prints across everything from ready-to-wear separates to slides and sandals. At the centre of it all? Gucci handbags. Whether it’s a Gucci cross-body bag – the Ophidia or Blondie, perhaps – or the trend-driving Marmont (and co-ordinating Gucci purse), one thing is clear: the Gucci spirit continues to reign supreme.
