Originally released in the Spring Summer 1974 collection, this multicolored silk top and skirt set has a print of running zebras intercepted with a colorful pattern. There is an embroidered label with the crest and 'Gucci Made in Italy.' This two-piece dress 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 54 | 21 and will arrive in tailor-made packaging. This rare and beautiful piece should be handled with exceptional care.
The zebra motif displayed on this set is particularly special because it is part of the first group of prints Gucci created that reference the world of nature and animals, the collection of prints were named 'Born Free'.
The Gucci crest was first created in the early 1950s and symbolizes Gucci's past. The image of the liftboy is forever immortalized discreetly on the label of this set.
