As a young person, Guccio Gucci moved from Italy to Paris. He worked his way up to the job of maître d’ at the Savoy Hotel. It was here that he became fascinated with the upper class guests of the hotel. At the time of the turn of the century, he returned to Italy and opened a workshop which specialized in producing travelware and accessories. His first travel cases and trunks bore the inscription : G. Gucci Articles for Travel, Florence. Right from the start, the Gucci brand was aimed at the international market. In 1921, Guccio opened his first store in Florence, Italy. In the fifties, Gucci’s son, Aldo, expanded the family business to include footwear. The horsebit loafer made its debut in 1953. It too was aimed at the international jet set. It was in the early 1960’s,when Gucci’s initials first showed up on the clasps of his bags. The double G logo in the diamond pattern became the most recognizable monogram in Italy!

Ralph Lauren just announced he would be stepping down as CEO of his company. Wow–didn’t see that coming. He has been the business brains and the creative genius behind the Ralph Lauren label for 48 years. What an incredible fashion empire he has created over these past years. His signature country club chic look is the perfect silhouette for the casual American lifestyle. Not only is his brand infamous for clothing but equally important is the womens accessory lines. The Ricky handbag (inspired by his wife) is one of the companys most coveted luxury items–retailing for $22,500.00
When Mr. Lauren steps down from the day -to-day business in November, Mr. Stefan Larsson will be taking over at the helm. Mr. Larsson is currently the global President of Old Navy and had been an H&M executive for 15 yrs. prior. Wall Street responded to the news with an uptick in Ralph Lauren stock and a down day for The Gap corp. Mr. Larsson has had 3 consecutive years of profitable growth with Old Navy.
Even though the reins will be turned over to Mr. Larsson, Mr. Lauren will still retain the post of executive chairman and chief creative director of the multi-brand company. Mr. Lauren states, “my job is to think always about the future of our company and how to move it forward”. He also stated, “Stefan Larsson is exceptionally talented and he will bring our company a fresh and exciting global perspective”.
After many years of big and splashy designer logos plastered all over designer handbags, the affluent consumer is now trending toward a more subtle look. Some of the big name, high-end luxury designers such as Gucci, Louis Vuitton and Prada have hit a bump in the road. The wealthy are still spending big dollars on luxury designer brands but they are looking for understated luxury. Personal style and individuality are the new “cool” rather than conspicuous consumption. These trends come and go. What’s your preference—subtlety or splashy??
Ralph Lauren—-an American Icon that seems to have been on the fashion scene forever, but hard as it is to believe his brand is less than fifty years old! His work began at Brooks Bros. in New York and then he later went to work at Brummel Neckwear and that is where the Polo brand was created in 1967. Menswear and women’s wear followed in 1971. In 1972 the Ralph Lauren label featuring updated classic items was created.
With over 100 stores worldwide, along with a new flagship store opening very soon at 711 Fifth Avenue has helped make the Polo Pony one of the world’s most recognized brands!
