Gucci announced that it will begin selling women-exclusive handbags exclusively at select stores in China in 2018.
The announcement comes a few weeks after Gucci unveiled its new collection of women-specific products at the Beijing Fashion Week.
The new Gucci handbags are available exclusively at all Gucci stores in the country.
“We believe that women’s needs are not limited to the narrow, narrow range of handbags available today, but should be supported in every fashion product imaginable,” Gucci Chief Executive Officer Pierre Omidyar said in a statement.
“For us, it is about creating a collection of products that reflect the true essence of women.
We believe that Gucci is the world’s first and only luxury brand to make a statement about women and women in fashion.”
According to the statement, the Guccis new collection will be available exclusively through select Gucci outlets.
The Gucci brand has been in China for nearly three decades and has expanded its presence in the region.

The latest rumors came from a post by China’s largest luxury retailer JD.com, which claimed the store was being renovated and could be opened by 2019.
“In the future, JD is going to open a Gucci store in Shanghai, where Gucci has its flagship store,” the post said.
“It is the next step in the expansion of JD’s business in China.
As a result, JD will offer Gucci the first-ever female-only outlet at its flagship stores, and JD will also expand its own stores with more than 200 stores.”
In February 2018, Gucci opened the first of its stores in Hong Kong.

In January 2019, Guccies China operations were transferred to the Guilhem Group, a holding company of the family-run Chinese company, Guilhems Group.
The company is a subsidiary of China’s state-owned conglomerate, Guodian Group, which also owns Gucci.
The two companies have had a longstanding relationship that includes an agreement to create Gucci Fashion Week in Beijing in 2019.
The Beijing Fashion Weeks, which run from April to November, are the most important fashion events of the year.

“This decision is a very positive step forward in Gucci, and we look forward to seeing our Shanghai and China stores open up in the near future.”
