Vintage GG Plus boston bag, 1980s

First produced in the early 1980s, this boston bag is made from beige and ebony GG Plus canvas with brown leather trims. On the inside there is a leather label with 'Crest Gucci Accessory Collection MADE IN ITALY' embossed in gold together with the number '010 378'. This handbag 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 137 | 22 and will arrive in tailor-made packaging. This rare and beautiful piece should be handled with exceptional care.

The Story

Born as an addition to the Original GG, the GG Plus canvas is a durable and resistant fabric first created in the mid-1970s, now evolved in what is known as GG Supreme—a contemporary version used by Alessandro Michele starting from the Fall Winter 2015 collection.

The fabric extends around the structured shape and is framed by deep brown leather detailing and is intercepted by the green and red Web. The Web stripe signifies an unspoken code that is recognizable at first glance. The stripe extends through decades, connecting each wearer not only to the origin of the House but to each owner of the bag, who was also undeniably drawn to the regimental stripes of green and red.

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 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 unique. Imperfections should be expected and treasured as the journey continues for this piece.
