First produced in the 1970s, this brown silk tie has a contrast Diagonal G print. 'Gucci' is embroidered onto a label on the interior. This tie 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 57 | 21 and will arrive in tailor-made packaging. This rare and beautiful piece should be handled with exceptional care.
The shape of this tie combined with the deep brown tone of the silk illuminates the decade in which it was created. The Diagonal G motif spreads across the silhouette.
In 1975 the request was made to the Ministry of Industry and Commerce to obtain the patent for the "ornamental design deriving from a line interrupted by a letter of the alphabet alternating with a continuous line" which was issued in 1978. The print was present in the 1977 catalog.
