Gucci is the number one Italian brand in the world, with over 278 stores world-wide. At the helm is creative director Frida Giannini, who is dedicated to maintaining the luxury heritage of the company. Frida also ‘Chimes For Change’, raising money world-wide for women’s education.
Gucci was founded in Florence, Italy in 1921, a city famous for slilled craftsmanship. It began with leather luggage, next came bags and shoes. In the early 1960’s, Gucci expanded, adding clothing and accessories, at one point manufacturing over 200,000 products.
For the 2013 Gucci Men’s Cruise Collection, Frida has chosen a combination of fabrics. There are fine pig skins and leathers, wools, silks, and the cotton signature canvas with the double G symbol and prominent red and green bands, materials that transcend the seasons and typify travel. The Gucci man is ready to indulge his senses in the best the world has to offer, especially warm sunny beaches, tourmaline blue waters, and starry nights.
Gucci is known for highly sophisticated menswear, but they also make casual fun pieces that accentuate every kind of man. Whether it’s sleek body- molding designs for the slender, or looser fitting attire for the larger build, Gucci is dedicated to epitomize style and fashion. The Cruise collection is founded on neutral tones, with bright pops of explosive color that are easy to wear. Color accentuates the modern silhouettes, and infuses a youthful attitude.
For yachting or the golf course, you could choose simple black shorts with an overly saturated crimson or floral print shirt. Traveling to the Mediterranean doesn’t have to be sober, try a bleached denim jean with a blue leather jacket and a handcrafted striped Baiadera bag. The great thing about Gucci is you can have it all – slacks, shirt, shoes, jacket, suit, shorts, bag, sunglasses. For a chic evening look, try a crisp white tuxedo, accented with a mandarin orange loafer. The 2013 Gucci Men’s Cruise Collection is about bursting open with confidence, color, and style.
