Originally released in the late '70s with the code G1244, this vintage Jackie shoulder bag in GG Plus fabric has been hand-picked by Gucci's archivists. The original Jackie silhouette, the front is decorated with a gold-toned piston closure and the shoulder strap is adjustable using a gold-toned buckle. Under the shoulder strap the Gucci crest is embossed in gold, inside the interior pocket is the number 98 46 001 1244 in gold. A light blue and red geometric pattern has been hand-painted onto the original design, reviving it into a one-of-a-kind item. An additional adjustable shoulder strap is included. 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 25 | 21 and will arrive in tailor-made packaging. This rare and beautiful piece should be handled with exceptional care.
Born as an addition to the Original GG, the GG Plus canvas is a durable and resistant fabric first created in the mid-1970s, now evolved in what is known as GG Supreme—a contemporary version used by Alessandro Michele starting from the Fall Winter 2015 collection.
The fabric extends around the half-moon shape and is framed by deep brown leather detailing. The piston closure is its most defining feature, directly connects the wearer with the journey of this bag. Once this bag was brought into the Vault, it was hand-painted with a light blue and red geometric pattern, 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.
