The Story

The Flora motif, a delicate and whimsical composition of flowers, fruits and insects, was created for Gucci in 1966 by artist and set designer Vittorio Accornero. The print was repurposed for the Spring Summer 1982 collection, which was shown for the first time in the Sala Bianca of Palazzo Pitti in October 1981. Part of that collection, the print is shown on a black background of this silk shirt, giving a new feel to the historic motif.

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.
