Gucci Celebrates 100 Years with New Collection

It’s been an incredible one hundred years since Guccio Gucci founded the iconic fashion house in Florence in 1921. This year Gucci continues its 100th-anniversary celebration with a unique Gucci 100 collection on the back of its runway show in April.

The centenary runway collection presented by Gucci’s Creative Director Alessandro Michele in April combines haute couture pieces with a fashion film directed by Floria Sigismondi. The collection feels like a montage of the greatest designs collections from over the years – full of bright lights, bold looks, and Gucci-themed music.

Michele, who’s been at Gucci since 2002, embraced the luxury house’s equestrian heritage, borrowing references from the Tom Ford era and even ‘hacking’ looks directly from Balenciaga – the Paris fashion house held by the same parent company, Kering.

Continuing the year-long celebration, Gucci has now launched an online Ready to Wear Collection for fans to get their own piece of the 100th-anniversary legacy.

Gucci describes the collection as:

Reflecting on a century of heritage, Gucci 100 creates a side-by-side tribute to both past and present exploring the House’s impact on pop culture over the last century.
