The world has come a long way since I first heard about Gucci.
I was born in 1979 and lived through the ’90s and the rise of fashion trends that would never be replicated in my lifetime.
I spent many years as a fashion critic, but I had little faith in the fashion industry.
I didn’t see a future for Gucci when I was just starting out, and I had no idea how the company would make a big splash in the industry, much less the way it would become one of the most recognizable brands in the world.
So when Gucci CEO Gucci Fernandez announced his vision for the company back in February of this year, I was thrilled.
I was a little skeptical about how a startup would do well in the market, especially in the age of the social media and the mobile revolution.
But as I started to think more about the company’s future, I realized that Fernandez’s vision for Guccas future was extremely optimistic.
I had always envisioned Gucci as a “fashion brand,” one that would “take the consumer’s gaze and turn it into something we want to wear.”
Fernandez’s mission was simple: create sunglasses that are “authentic, stylish, and affordable.”
And the result was the latest in Gucci’s “authenticity” line of sunglasses, which was introduced to the world in early 2018.
I had a lot of questions.
Who was the company?
What was the vision for it?
And who was behind the project?
But one thing I knew for certain was that the Gucci vision for its sunglasses was going to be huge.
As Fernandez put it, the company had two “visionaries” working on it.
The first vision, announced at a press conference in March, was to “make sunglasses that will be the foundation of our future.”
It was an ambitious goal, and the announcement set off a lot more speculation.
Some thought that Fernandez was aiming to become a “brand evangelist,” using the brand to push his ideas and ideas about fashion to consumers.
Others speculated that Fernandez would use Gucci to promote the company and sell its sunglasses to a wider audience.
In the end, it wasn’t that difficult to figure out who was in charge of the company.
The “visionary” who was working on the project was Gucci founder and CEO Stefano Gucci, and he had already been working on his vision of the sunglasses since late 2018.
The two men were very close and knew each other well.
As we learned more about each other, it became apparent that this was going be a collaborative effort.
The vision of Gucci sunglasses, as Fernandez explained it in a Medium post, was a “very high-quality product.”
The first version of the glasses, for instance, featured a 3-D “sensor” that tracked the wearer’s gaze by measuring the distance between the lens and the face and the angle between the lenses to create an “eye-tracking” effect.
The company later announced that it was also working on a range of new eyewear, including “the first-ever high-tech eyeware,” which will “be designed for people with specific needs.”
The glasses are expected to hit the market in 2019.
I’m not sure exactly what the glasses are supposed to do.
As the video below shows, they’re designed to give you an idea of how the glasses will look.
They will “reflect” your gaze and make you look “beautiful” (which is an odd way to put it) if you wear them too long.
But the most intriguing part of the vision is that it is supposed to provide sunglasses to help you “feel the right” way while you walk, jog, or even take a shower.
These glasses will also allow you to “move around,” which is pretty cool.
I have no idea what this “move” technology entails, but it certainly sounds interesting.
I also have no clue how long the glasses would last.
The video above does a great job of illustrating the glasses’ potential, but the actual product has not been announced.
We have seen plenty of prototypes, but nothing really has been made public.
The glasses will likely launch in 2019 or 2020, but if Fernandez can pull this off, he will likely have a long and successful career.
I asked Gucci if it planned on using the glasses to create a whole new type of “faux-styled” sunglasses, and they told me that they would indeed be making some of their own.
“The company is looking into the possibility of creating some ‘faux’ sunglasses,” a spokesperson told me.
“We’re already talking with some designers to bring our ideas to life.”
What these faux-styling glasses would look like remains to be seen, but we know that they will have some very unique and interesting designs.
So far, the glasses have been only available in a black version, but Fernandez has already
