"Italian-made and heaven sent
The very skirt of which I dreamt
Suede leather trim, gold buckle twist
A pairing one cannot resist."
A suede mid-length skirt framed by tone-on-tone leather. The asymmetric front slit is closed with gold-toned metal buckles. The interior label has 'Made in Italy by Gucci' embossed in gold. This suede skirt 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 17 | 21 and will arrive in tailor-made packaging. This rare and beautiful piece should be handled with exceptional care.
In a style that exudes '70s glamour, this mid-length skirt is made in black suede and contrasted by gold-toned metal buckles. During this era, the use of suede became more prominent and helped define a certain Gucci elegance. In the 1970s, suede was also used in Gucci's ready-to-wear collection particularly made for the American market.
