Golden Goose Deluxe Brand
Leather jackets with processing techniques such as "Used-Style Denim", luxury sneakers, fancy shirts with a classic cut, boots with a touch of glamor and leather bags manufactured with traditional craftsmanship. Golden Goose Deluxe Brand is currently one of the most popular fashion brands in the world.
Originating from Venice, the fashion label Golden Goose Deluxe Brand was founded in 2000 by Francesca Rinaldo and Alessandro Gallo.
The statement of the designers was and is to convey a sense of their own values and ideas through fashion. It is not only the production and distribution of the collections, which drives the duo, but also the goal of bringing the GGDB typical lifestyle closer to customers. The office with attached studio is located in Venice, right in the port area of Porto Marghera. The old industrial building, a former foundry, serves the two fashion designers as a perfect source of inspiration to combine all of the impressions brought back from their trips around the world, which are then branded with the typical Golden Goose look. Always following the principle „fashion passes away, but true style remains“
From the very beginning, it was their desire to bring an alignment of quality with comfort, and elegance with sporty lightness. A characteristic feature of the work from Francesca and Alessandro is the successful fusion of Venetian crafts and the expression of a modern feeling of luxury.
Their style is often referred to as "new classic" because it contains modern elements without losing sight of classical, traditional aspects.
They commenced designing their first collection with a fellow Venetian tailor. From the beginning, great emphasis was placed on ensuring that the complete collection was "Made in Italy". All subsequent collections are receiving strong support from fashionistas around the globe.
Since 2007, the collection is completed by its own sneaker line. Again, the claims and principles of the preceding clothing lines were decisive. The sneakers should not just be ones that can be found on every corner, but they should also express the Golden Goose philosophy. The rapid success of their shoe range led to adding childrens sneakers to the company's portfolio in 2009.
Inspired by her own daughter, Francesca wanted to give children and young people who are interested in fashion the opportunity to share their parent’s passion for shoes. Part of the profits from the children’s collection are being donated to organizations which supoort care for children in need.
Since 2012 a new clothing line named "Haus" is being produced, closing former collection gaps and making Golden Goose Deluxe Brand into a "full-scale lifestyle brand".
By now, Golden Goose can be purchased worldwide in over 500 stores, including 7 flagship stores (Milan, New York, Paris, New York Amsterdam, Tokyo, Nagoya and Beirut) and 2 home stores (both in Korea).
