The gold-toned metal snap fasteners are paired with a key with holder and luggage tag . The interior fabric lining depicts the diamond motif and a leather component has 'Made in Italy by Gucci' embossed in gold. This suitcase 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 62 | 21 and will arrive in tailor-made packaging. This rare and beautiful piece should be handled with exceptional care.
Crafted in Crystal GG, this fabric dates back to the mid 1970s, it was born as an evolution of the Original GG fabric and was endearingly referred to as "GG under the glass." For Cruise 2018, Alessandro Michele reintroduced this fabric in his ready-to-wear collection.
The simple, structured suitcase speaks to the history of the House and the unparalleled craftsmanship behind each item. The GG fabric is framed by brown leather and intercepted by the green and red Web. The recognizable stripes are an ode to the House's equestrian beginnings—an unofficial symbol of the brand.
