Golden Goose, urban, contemporary trainers.
Renowned for its trainers, Golden Goose uses traditional know-how to create an urban, contemporary look. The Italian company stands out for the quality of the leather it uses to make its shoes and for its British sense of style. Apart from its iconic high trainers and sneakers, Golden Goose offers a collection of clothes with clean, modern lines, together with bags and accessories.
A star is born.
Founded in the year 2000 by Alessandro Gallo and Francesca Rinaldo, Golden Goose distinguished itself through its authentic, artisanal approach. Today, the brand's products are still created exclusively in Venice. If the fashion house started by launching a line of shirts, boots and leather bags for women, it was in 2007 that it really took off thanks to its different models of trainers. The secret of its success? Pastel, sometimes even flashy colours, with sequins, married with zebra or metallic patterns or deliberately made to look worn. Recognisable by their famous hand-embroidered star, Golden Goose sneakers have forged the reputation of the brand, which expanded its range of items to propose, from 2009 onwards, children's footwear, including the Francy and Superstar models.
But Golden Goose is also clothes and a wide range of bags, that the house also offers in all shapes and colours. From small clutches to weekend bags, along with crossbody and bucket bags, their leather goods either play the subtle card with matt leathers, or the extravagance card with laminated or metallic materials. Either printed onto the leather or simply as a charm attached to the item, the label's emblematic star brands numerous of their pieces with the stamp of Golden Goose.
Trainers that take on the world.
With over 700 points of sale in the most prestigious cities in the world, from Paris to New York, via Tokyo, Golden Goose has today developped big-scale internationally. Coveted by several investors, it was finally bought by the Carlyle group in 2017. Already the owner of brands such as Moncler, Simona Barbieri and Hunkemöller, this company specialising in capital investment should reinforce Golden Goose's presence in the US and Asia even further.
With its street style mixing retro touches with a contemporary allure, Golden Goose has succeeded in establishing itself in the world of fashion. Distributed exclusively in luxury stores, the brand offers a wide range of clothes, bags, accessories and shoes with urban, rock'n'roll overtones. Amongst the iconic pieces of Golden Goose, the following are worth a mention:
