This shoulder bag was first produced in the early 1970s with the code G1777. The soft silhouette is crafted in smooth blue leather and is complemented by an Interlocking G buckle closure in silver-toned and gold-toned metal. The shoulder strap is adjustable using the gold-toned buckle. Embossed in gold on the interior is 'Made in Italy by Gucci.' 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 36 | 21 and will arrive in tailor-made packaging. This rare and beautiful piece should be handled with exceptional care.
In a silhouette that bridges decades, this soft slouchy handbag epitomizes the idea of seasonless dressing. The distinctive closure in mixed metals depicts the Interlocking G—a forever nod to Guccio Gucci.
In Gucci's 1975 catalog, a version of this bag was presented with the Flora scarf draping over its top and extending into the foreground. At the time, the presence of this scarf was a subtle ode to the rich historic narrative of the House, now that connection has extended into the now, giving a new perspective to this vintage piece.
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.
