Gucci is a famous Italian producer of fashion apparel. That includes handbags, shows, as well as make-up and even fragrances. This brand, in fact, is one of the few truly luxurious makers of Italian accessories. They have almost monopolized the entire industry, what with their influence and history.
The meaning of the name is simple. In 1921, an entrepreneur Guccio Gucci opened up his first shop of leather apparel. His surname (and maybe also his name) inspired both the brand name and the logo. The Italians do love putting their family names everywhere, after all.
The Gucci logo is rather simple, and in its brilliance it was left unchanged since 1921. It’s basically two letters round ‘G’ mirrored against one another and interlocked so that the square elements of the letter make up the downward arrow in the middle. The two letters stand, naturally, for the founder’s own name and for the name of the family.
Another prominent symbol of the brand is the one that depicts the company name in full – ‘GUCCI’, all in uppercase and written in uneven yet thin font. Most of the time, the letters are painted black, although it’s not uncommon for them to be golden, for instance.
