A black leather duffle bag, introduced in the early 1970s, has the green and red Web inlay around the center. Zip-top closure with gold-toned zipper pull and address holder in black leather. The interior lining is in Diamante fabric with 'Made in Italy by Gucci' embossed in gold. This duffle bag was selected by the Creative Director and Vault archivists for its particularity, character and exceptional vintage condition, and it was reconditioned by the in-house atelier. It has been given the number 44 | 21 and will arrive in tailor-made packaging. This rare and beautiful piece should be handled with exceptional care.
This duffle bag speaks to that fantastical idea of travel, both real and imagined, and one can imagine the destinations this bag has reached throughout the last 50 years. Notes of travel and faraway places have always been integrated into the Gucci identity, beginning with Guccio Gucci working at the Savoy Hotel in London—an experience that inspired him to start the luxury goods brand.
The Web stripe signifies an unspoken code that is recognizable at first glance. The stripe extends through decades, connecting each wearer not only to the origin of the House, but to each owner of the bag, who was also undeniably drawn to the regimental stripes of green and red.
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.
