The House of Gucci, commonly referred as Gucci, was established in 1921. However, it wasn’t until 1933 that Gucci started using the now iconic and well-known logo. The “facing double-G” Gucci logo was designed by Aldo Gucci, one of the three sons of founder Guccio Gucci.
Quite ironically, the company behind the Gucci emblem has no Gucci as owner. Currently, Gucci is part of French luxury group Kering Group which also includes Yves SaintLaurent, Balenciaga, Alexander McQueen, Bottega Veneta, Boucheron and Brioni, Pomellato.
