Originally released in the early '80s with the code G1244, this vintage Jackie shoulder bag in GG Plus fabric has been hand-picked by Gucci's archivists. The original Jackie silhouette, the front is decorated with a gold-toned piston closure and the shoulder strap is adjustable using a gold-toned buckle. On the interior there is the Gucci Crest together with 'Gucci Made in Italy' engraved on a golden metal plate. 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 139 | 21 and will arrive in tailor-made packaging. This rare and beautiful piece should be handled with exceptional care.
Born as an addition to the Original GG, the GG Plus canvas is a durable and resistant fabric, 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 half-moon shape and is framed by deep blue leather detailing. The piston closure is its most defining feature, directly connects the wearer with the journey of this bag. Once this bag was brought into the Vault, it was hand-painted with multicolor stripes, cementing its one-of-a-kind status.
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.
