Vintage Gucci Blondie suede handbag, 1970s

A small handbag crafted in Square G suede, first produced in the 1970s. The front is detailed with the round GG in gold-toned metal. This model appears in the artisans' notebook dated 1969-1973. 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 08 | 22 and will arrive in tailor-made packaging. This rare and beautiful piece should be handled with exceptional care.

The Story

This small handbag is accentuated by the Double G hardware and the Square G pattern that extends around the silhouette. For the Cruise 2018 collection, Alessandro Michele reintroduced the Square G motif.

In 1971, the request was made to the Ministry of Industry and Commerce to obtain the patent for the design "GG golden metal decorative accessory," and the patent was granted in 1972. In 1975, the request was made to the Ministry of Industry and Commerce to obtain the patent for the “G framework design,” and the patent was issued in 1978.

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 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.
