Last night, V and I had our normal night chika. Usually dahil demanding kayo, I have to make most of my posts the night before para hindi kayo madelay the next morning. Yes, eyyfort sya. Haha!
Minsan kasi yang mga logo and chuchu, we take for granted. Hindi ko din knows kung para saan but every time I get the chance to learn more about the brand..bongga. Because you learn more about the heritage and in the end mas naappreciate mo. You guys may already know this but hindi ko alam and I’m sure meron ding may hindi alam pero pretensiosa lang. Haha! So here goes! haha!
So anyways eto ang naganap.
So we were hanging out with our laptops open.
D: (Sumisilip sa computer ni V, upon seeing some Gucci shoes on his screen) WEEHHH! Akala ko ba ayaw mo yang buckle ng Gucci. Pretensiosa!
V: It looks nice on some designs. It depends on the design.
D: Wushhuuu! Never say never kasi. Maganda naman yang buckle.
D: Anong horsebit? Hindi ko alam yan.
V: It’s a horsebit not a buckle love.
D: (Looking at the logo)..AY! Hindi ko napansin yun ha! Akala ko imbent lang. OO nga, mukhang galing somewhere. Wala kasi akong kabayo eh.
V: (Opening some site that show Gucci history) I’ll read this out loud para malaman mo.
D: AY.. mamya nalang. Basahin mo nalang tapos kwento mo sakin. Ang haba nyan eh. haha!
So eto ang chika ni V and thanks to pareng GOOGLE narin.
Gucci started 1906 in Florence, Italy. It really started as a leather company selling (well ano pa ba… eh di leather goods) to Horsemen (Hindi kapre ha). By 1938, Gucci opened it’s first retail store in Rome.
So as you can see, may pinangalingan yung horsebit na yan. It came from their history. Although they didn’t immediately used the “horsebit” as a logo or icon, they started this by 1950s.
So there, pwede na kayo mag-bida. When you see the horsebit in Gucci Bags, shoes at iba iba pa… alam nyo na saan galing.
To those of you guys starting a line, company or kung ano anong ganap, It’s a nice idea to have your logo or icon be a symbol of everything. Maganda asi yung may background story d ba? Yung hindi lang nakita sa kanto at ginaya. Haha! I will try to discover more about other brand’s heritage and share ko sa inyo.
Hope nag-enjoy kayo at buti nalang knows ni V ang horsebit. We learn something nga naman everyday 🙂
