From the Spring Summer 1999 collection, this silk dress has a colorful print called Exotic Flower and is decorated with ruffle trim along the neckline, arm openings and bottom hem. There is an embroidered label with 'Gucci' on the interior. This dress 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 123 | 21 and will arrive in tailor-made packaging. This rare and beautiful piece should be handled with exceptional care.
Created under the Creative Direction of Tom Ford for Gucci's Spring Summer 1999 collection, this dress has a multicolor flower print against a turquoise background.
This collection represented a change in Tom Ford's Gucci, one in which he described as “Las Vegas hippie,” and was, at the time, a step outside the stark minimalist silhouettes of collections past. The bright, colorful flowers in exaggerated prints were a "happy" juxtaposition to what came before.

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.
