Vintage Gucci Sunglasses and Glasses Frames
Guccio Gucci created the House of Gucci in 1921, manufacturing saddlery for Italian noblemen and women. The move into other leather accessories came naturally. It wasn’t long before the iconic GG luggage became the must-have for the wealthy across the world.
However. It wasn’t until after Guccio’s death that Gucci began to produce their first range of sunglasses in the early 1960s. These quickly became a hit with the jet setters and Hollywood stars alike, who recognised the quality and style of these vintage Gucci frames.
The appreciation for vintage Gucci sunglasses and eyeglasses grew exponentially over the following decades. The Tom Ford era - as Creative Director - led to some of the most iconic and collectable frames being produced. The enduring appeal of vintage Gucci eyewear is tied to the fact they are almost all unisex styles, that can be comfortably worn by both men and women.
