Guess celebrates four decades of fashion history and iconic images with new softcover book edition «A Fourth Decade of Guess Images». The fourth edition of this eye-catching collectible details the story of four brothers who founded a global brand. Beginning with the launch of the 3-Zip Marilyn Jean in 1981, this book commemorates the hard work, passion and creativity that led to forty years of esteemed fashion.
Over the past four decades, the Guess brand has been defined by the originality of its glamorous images. "I was convinced that if there wasn't a strong image attached to the Guess brand, one day we might lose a season or a trend, and we might face a major challenge. I've always believed that a brand image, if done well, will stand the test of time and the test of fashion trends".says Paul Marciano, Guess co-founder, creative director and the mind behind the brand's advertising campaigns. The cover of the book, which celebrates the courage behind Guess' 40 years, features an image of Guess girl and former Guess Kids model Gigi Hadid.

The quotes cleverly tell the stories behind the illustrious Guess images and the people who brought them to life.
