Vintage GG Plus shoulder bag, 1970s

Originally released in the mid 1970s, this shoulder bag is crafted in beige and ebony GG Plus fabric with a brown leather trim. The gold-toned Horsebit is paired with a silver-toned Square G. The shoulder strap attachments are in the shape of gold-toned metal half Horsebits. On the inside 'Made in Italy by Gucci' is stamped in gold with the number 48–the identification number of the bag's artisan. Light blue and red triangles have been hand-painted onto the original design, reviving it into a one-of-a-kind item. This handbag was selected by the Creative Director and Vault archivists for its particularity, character and exceptional vintage condition, and it was reconditioned to the highest standard by in-house artisans. It has been given the number 02 | 21 and will arrive in tailor-made packaging. This rare and beautiful piece should be handled with exceptional care.

The Story

A structured shoulder bag crafted in GG Plus, a durable and resistant fabric created in the mid 1970s—during a time when a number of GG variations were introduced to complement the Original GG fabric. Part of Gucci’s genetic code, the double ring and bar Horsebit design has been established as one of the most distinctive elements among the House symbols borrowed from the equestrian world. The Square G is added to the Horsebit, further enhancing its logo appeal.

Once this bag was brought into the Vault, it was hand-painted with light blue and red triangles, cementing its one-of-a-kind status.

As soon as you hold a piece of the Vault, you begin to write a new chapter of its story—instituting a relationship, rather than an ownership, that will forever connect one owner to the next. As the years accumulate, every mark or crease is collected onto the surface, continuously altering the item’s appearance and making it completely unique. Imperfections should be expected and treasured as the journey continues for this piece.
