GUESS was established in 1981 by the Marciano brothers, who left the south of France in pursuit of the American dream. Inspired by a European influence, the Marciano’s put their innovative touch on the apparel industry, redefining denim.
One of their initial designs was a stonewashed, slim-fitting jean, the 3-zip Marilyn. This was the beginning of a long success story.
The Marciano’s vision moved the brand into new frontiers. GUESS became a symbol of a young, sexy, and adventurous lifestyle.
Throughout the decades, GUESS invited people to dream with its iconic and timeless advertising campaigns. Today, GUESS is a global lifestyle brand that offers a full range of apparel and accessories and caters to the youthful, glamorous, and sexy consumer.
