It has been given the number 75 | 21 and will arrive in tailor-made packaging. This rare and beautiful piece should be handled with exceptional care.

The Story

Crafted from silk with a playful shell print, this dress references the nautical feel that permeates Gucci's collections and is part of the Fall Winter 1978-1979 campaign. Marine references have been influencing the House for decades, speaking to the fantastical idea of travel, both real and imagined.

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.
