Gucci celebrates 90th anniversary with revamped classics
Wednesday 13 April 2011
To celebrate 90 years in business, the Italian fashion house will release its '1921' collection this summer.
Referring to Gucci's founding year, the 1921 label will be attached to a number of the brand's best-known classics including the Bamboo, Jackie and Horsebit bags, which will all be made over in new fabrics and colors.
Other accessories such as shoes, probably including Gucci's signature moccasins, riding boots, and loafers, as well as special-edition watches, bracelets, wallets, and sunglasses will also be part of the collection.
All items will go on sale in Gucci boutiques and online this June.
Prices have not yet been announced, but for everyone who is looking for a special-edition release in a generally more budget-conscious range, Marc by Marc Jacobs is celebrating its ten years with a capsule collection of biggest hits (starting at $68) revisited.
