Launched in 1973, Gabicci first came into being when its two creators were inspired by a trip to the Italian seaside resort of Gabicce Mare. A mixture of East End rag trade expertise, sharp Italian styling and a nod to the '50's rock and screen icons and the look was born. Fine knitted jackets and shirts were trimmed with suede and finished with unique detailing. Always on the smart side of casual, the structured collars, piping details, suede trims and of course the iconic 'G' became sought after trademarks. For over 35 years, Gabicci has gone from strength to strength, evolving into a distinctive and much copied design style. The brand epitomised the '80's trends with cut and sewn geometric panelling in knitted jersey polo shirts, fine gauge knitwear and lightweight jackets. The '90's saw Gabicci adopted as a favourite amongst golfers and the latest technology was put to good use in the development a plated jersey fabric, knitted with cotton on the inside for comfort and polyester on the outside for durability.
The current Gabicci collection consists of fine gauge knitwear, woven shirts in luxurious fabrics and knitted tops in cotton and cotton / silk blends. The styling is modern yet sophisticated, with designs offered in rich, vibrant colours which are always on trend.
