Originally released in the early 1970s, this belt is crafted from gold-toned metal and enriched with blue and green enamel. Presented in the 1972 catalog, the buckle of this style depicts the 'Gucci Italy' script. This belt 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 61 | 21 and will arrive in tailor-made packaging. This rare and beautiful piece should be handled with exceptional care.
Plaques of metal link together with a chain-like design, where glitzes of gold alternate with blue and green stripes—a motif recalling the emblematic Web first used during the 1950s.
The ornate design is telling of the time in which it was created, when jewelry-style pieces extended past the neck and wrists. The belt wraps around the hips, maybe it was worn slipped over a dress or a pair of jeans.
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.
