"‘60s florid floral flair
Asymmetric blue-framed square
Hand-painted on a sheet of white
Ring the bellflower of delight."
This scarf was first produced in the late 1960s and is made in cotton muslin with a white background, blue border and multicolored Campanule print by Vittorio Accornero de Testa. This scarf 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 14 | 21 and will arrive in tailor-made packaging. This rare and beautiful piece should be handled with exceptional care.
One of seventy-seven designs created by the artist and set designer Vittorio Accornero, who first illustrated the Flora motif for Gucci in 1966. The 'V. Accornero' signature printed onto each scarf, is a rare display of authorship and speaks to the personal connection Accornero had with the House.
Each design is known for its broad range of colors and asymmetrical composition, here the bellflowers are clearly the focal point but unexpected details come through as the image is further explored.
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 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 unique. Imperfections should be expected and treasured as the journey continues for this piece.
