Gucci Sunglasses

Recent years have seen Gucci grow to become one of the most respected and critically acclaimed fashion brands in the World. Today, Gucci sunglasses range have become a highlight of the brand’s collection offering an exclusive balance of design, function and style enhanced by impeccable quality and iconic details.

Super stylish Gucci sunglasses speak for themselves. Arguably the ultimate in high-end designer eyewear, Gucci sunglasses combine an amazing brand history with uncompromising design and manufacturing standards that are second to none. If you’re lucky enough to get your hands on a pair or two of cheap Gucci sunglasses, you should definitely expand your eyewear repertoire to include this outstanding label.

Announce your high-end fashion status to the world without saying a word: when stepping out in your best finery, donning a pair of Gucci sunglasses UK-style will put you ahead of the best-dressed and accessorised people around. Since the world-famous Italian designer first introduced Gucci sunglasses, they’ve regularly been seen on the best-known celebrities and top name personalities worldwide. These are individuals who not only appreciate the ultimate in contemporary eyewear design and quality, but the fashionista lifestyle the Gucci brand represents.

The man behind this globally renowned brand, Guccio Gucci, left home to seek a new and different life to his father, who made leather suitcases, belts and accessories. The irony was, however, that he later became known as a maker of premier leather products, well before producing Gucci sunglasses. But, his talents at his father’s factory, mixed with great talent and design creativity, were yet to blossom.

After a stint in Paris, Guccio headed for the Savoy Hotel in London, the most luxurious hotel in Europe at the time, where he worked his way up, literally, to elevator operator. In such close proximity to the guests entering the hotel, he spent much of the day observing the most chic and handsome stars of the early twentieth century, including artist Claude Monet, Prime Minister Winston Churchill, movie starlet Marilyn Monroe and singer Frank Sinatra, among many others.

But what caught his eye was not just the celebrities’ style and sophistication, but the quality of their clothing, fashion accessories, jewellery - and the superior construction and design of their luggage. With this unique insight and inspiration in mind, and a few great networking contacts attained among the loftiest of future clients, Gucci returned to Florence in 1921. With all of his hotel work savings and his recent fashion education, he straightaway moved the family business in a new direction.

Now intent on marketing to the richest of Florentines, he steered production towards the creation of superior leather horse harnesses. As horse sports were the domain of the richest Italians, the Gucci name quickly became associated with quality and solid construction, still hallmarks of the brand today. The best of modern industrial techniques, including exquisite machine stitching were used and coupled with the old-style Tuscan craftsmanship of local artisans. Soon, superbly ornamented and finished goods with a classic flair became synonymous with the House of Gucci, the trading name of the designer’s empire.

With his three sons, Aldo, Vasco and Rodolfo, Gucci soon expanded the “GG” company to Milan and Rome, whilst opening further shops in Florence. To the many finely crafted leather accessories, including shoes, belts, gloves and handbags, were added silks and knitwear with Gucci’s signature patterns. Worth noting, the famous and still worn Gucci loafer is the only shoe in the New York Museum of Modern Art’s collection.

During World War II, 1940s wartime supply shortages inspired Gucci to experiment with different luxury materials, such as linen, jute and even hemp. One item created out of need to try something new was the burnished cane handle of the well-received Bamboo Bag, inspired by the shape of a saddle. Still a favourite item of discerning shoppers, the bag was followed by further fame-producing equestrian-inspired style, when Gucci items began to sport a trademarked green-red-green stripe, taken from horsing girth design.

That small but distinctive mark of elegance, as well as the famous “double G” logo (created in the mid-60s), are both still seen on many Gucci sunglasses and other fashion items today. After Guccio’s passing in 1953, came the takeover and internationalisation of the company by Guccio’s three sons, and the establishment of a new store in New York. This quickly solidified the notion that Gucci is now the most widely recognised designer name in the world among discerning followers of fashion worldwide. Since many movie stars at the time were travelling to Italy, they were often seen with the must-have Gucci accessories, and this fact was translated to the world via the many fashion magazines and press publications of the day.

Jet Set personalities from Liz Taylor, Peter Sellers and Samuel Becket to Jackie Kennedy, wife of US President John F. Kennedy, began toting and wearing Gucci products of all kinds, including the Gucci shoulder bag and the Gucci classic moccasin. After Grace Kelly requested a personal design, the famous Flora silk print scarf took off, and the 60s saw new stores appearing in London, Paris, Beverly Hills and Palm Beach.

After being named “European Company of the Year 1998,” Gucci launched a global multi-brand luxury group through an alliance with Pinaulty-Printemps-Redoute in 1999. The company continued spreading its esteemed fashion industry values by creating new eco-friendly production methods, launching Gucci’s first children’s collection, and expanding into other product lines, including perfumes, cosmetics, watches...and, the now extremely popular Gucci sunglasses. Always a leader in fashion, Gucci sunglasses reflect the same quality and distinctive design characteristics as of all the company’s products. Favoured models still popular today include oversized unisex aviators and ladies’ sleek rectangular styles among others.

Great new Gucci sunglasses include stunning frame patterns, vision-protecting oversized models, shield / visor styles and classic aviator inspired styles.
