"Upright style fortress you stand
With a face that time has tanned
You traveled first class round the world
New livery revealed when you’re unfurled"
First produced in the late 1980s, the brown leather wardrobe has gold-toned metal detailing and interlocking closures. It opens up to five drawers, a briefcase and six wooden hangers. The Gucci Crest and the 'Made in Italy' logo is engraved on a golden metal plate and applied to a leather tab, underneath the tab is the number 019096085–the wardrobe's code. Orange and green stripes have been hand-painted onto the original design, reviving it into a one-of-a-kind item. This wardrobe 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 04 | 21 and will arrive in tailor-made packaging. This rare and beautiful piece should be handled with exceptional care.
The idea of travel has been synonymous with Gucci since its inception, and this structured wardrobe is a testament to the craftsmanship and attention to detail that continues to define the House to this day. Each pull of a drawer and click of the clasps transports the owner to a time when travel was a symbol of elegance and style.
Once this wardrobe was brought into the Vault, it was hand-painted with orange and green stripes, cementing its one-of-a-kind status.
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.
