Fans of 1980s and 90s Americana will already know the name Guess watches. The clothing company caught the zeitgeist and popular imagination with the use of Supermodels such as Claudia Schiffer in advertising campaigns. The brand was also featured heavily in iconic films such as ‘Back to the Future’ and ‘Wayne’s World’. This silver screen success led to Guess becoming internationally famous, resulting in the profile of the company growing dramatically over the past 30 years. The resulting phenomenal expansion has made it a market leader in the USA since 1983.
Guess began its rise to success in 1981. Founded by the Marciano’s, four brothers raised in the French city of Marseille, it aimed to become a worldwide apparel company appealing to young and fashion driven consumers. The brothers moved to California in 1977 and founded the company soon after. The brand quickly found fame as a trend-setting design studio that launched a decade of denim-based style with its iconic blue jeans and assortment of clothing and accessories.
