Based on the history of the Gucci family, you can make movies with Italian passions and scenes of battles where everyone was against everyone. And this film will, alas, not have the happiest ending. After the death of Guccio Gucci, the founder of the iconic brand, his grandson Paolo (b. 1931), having matured, wanted to manufacture products under his own name. However, his father punished him for this initiative, removing him from all posts in the fashion house.
Nevertheless, his name still remains in history. In particular, on the fine costume jewelry that he created during the decade – from 1983 to 1994. Noteworthy, he produced a lot of jewelry for the famous Parisian couturier Pierre Cardin. Now these exquisite pieces of jewelry labeled “Paolo” delight collectors and lovers of vintage jewelry.
Founded his own companies PAOLO, INC. and Paolo Gucci Design Studio, Ltd in 1983, he was
free to use the name “Paolo” with the phrase, “Designed by Paolo Gucci”. In addition to jewelry, mostly earrings, he produced handbags, lamps, sunglasses, and eventually some 4,000 other products. In fact, his contribution to the brand is great – 80 percent of the items in the Gucci catalogue!
Unfortunately, due to many lawsuits, he went bankrupt in 1994, and 20 months later he died (London, 10 October 1995).
