Originally released in the late 1960s, this beauty case is crafted in black leather with a green and red Web inlay. The top handle is held in place by gold-toned metal pieces. Embossed in gold is 'Made in Italy by Gucci'. This beauty case 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 63 | 21 and will arrive in tailor-made packaging. This rare and beautiful piece should be handled with exceptional care.
The simple, structured beauty case speaks to the history of the House and the unparraleled craftsmanship behind each item. The smooth black leather wraps around the silhouette and is intercepted by the green and red Web. The stripes can be traced back to the early 1950s and acts as a code of membership recognizable at first glance. This item was featured in the 1969 catalog.
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.
