Vintage leather travel bag, 1970s

Originally produced during the early '70s with code 0528, this travel bag is crafted from leather and suede and is finished with a gold-toned Interlocking G detail. Embossed in gold on the interior is 'Made in Italy by Gucci.' This travel bag was selected by the Creative Director and Vault archivists for its particularity, character and exceptional vintage condition, and it was reconditioned by the in-house atelier. It has been given the number 173 | 22 and will arrive in tailor-made packaging. This rare and beautiful piece should be handled with exceptional care.

The Story

In 1971, the request was made to the Ministry of Industry and Commerce for the patent for the decorative GG accessory in gold metal, which was issued in 1972. Over time, the Gucci logo has evolved into a symbol of Italian excellence and an icon of design and style. This travel piece connects to Gucci's beginnings where the first suitcases date back to the early 1930s. The idea of travel still runs through Gucci's DNA and carries through this piece as a continuation of its origin into its next destination.

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.
