Gucci is one of the most recognizable brands in the world. The brand is managed internationally by The House of Gucci which is a subsidiary of PRR. Founded in 1921 by Guccio Gucci, it is by far one of the most sought after premium brands in the world today where its handbags and accessories have been donned by consumers, celebrities and even royalties from the world over.
The Italian fashion and leather goods brand started off in its humble beginnings when Guccio started a shop that sold leather goods with classic styles after being inspired by the luxurious luggage that were used by the rich during that time. What started off as a hand-made leather goods company would eventually go on to include machine stitching and become one of the premier icons of the fashion world today where it is the only shoe brand in the permanent collection of the New York’s Museum of Modern
Art. As a specialist in the leather goods industry, Gucci has been known to produce one of the world’s best quality of product range that include various types of animal skins. In Malaysia, the brand is no stranger to the fashion conscious and industry. Its distinctive style and logo can be found among the socialites, celebrities as well as the royal families. It operates from 2 stores in Malaysia with one in Suria KLCC and another one at the Pavilion Shopping Center, 2 of the award winning, premium shopping malls in Kuala Lumpur. Both the stores carry the latest range of products of handbags, leather goods and other items which are followed very closely by the fashion world. However, the 2 original stores have to contest against the likes of imitation goods in the country which can be found in Chinatown
a well as in certain shopping malls.
