A bit of history… Founded in 1981, Guess, otherwise known as ‘GUESS’ or ‘Guess?’, is an American brand that was started up by the Marciano brothers, following success in France with their store, ‘MGA’. The name, as history tells it, was a product of the daily drive, taken by the brothers, past a McDonald’s billboard. Asking consumers to ‘guess’ what was in the new ‘Mac’, the Marciano brothers took inspiration after a comical debate. Combining French flair and American glamour, the company launched a campaign oozing style, featuring supermodels including Claudia Schiffer and Naomi Campbell, ingeniously design by Paul, the final brother to join the family firm. Notably, Guess jeans became hugely popular. Initially met with scepticism, the Marilyn 3-zip jeans were only stocked by Bloomingdale’s as a favour to the brothers; the complete stock sold out within hours, a clear reflection of the brothers’ swift success.
The ‘Guess Girl’ became a phenomenon in the 90s. Women, such as Anna Nicole Smith and Laetitia Casta, created striking looks that exuded sex and style – we remind you of the black-lipped Drew Barrymore, wrapped in cheetah print in 1993…
