Vintage flower print handbag, 1999

From the Spring Summer 1999 collection, this handbag is crafted with a colorful print called Acid Flower and has a flat and squared shape piston closure. There is 'Gucci Made in Italy' embossed on the interior. 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 125 | 21 and will arrive in tailor-made packaging. This rare and beautiful piece should be handled with exceptional care.

The Story

Created under the Creative Direction of Tom Ford for Gucci's Spring Summer 1999 collection, this handbag has a colorful floral pattern called Acid Flower, and is framed by black leather. This model, later known as 'Jackie 0,' recalls the historic Jackie model, which under the creative direction of Tom Ford, was relaunched, differentiating itself from the previous models with a new flat, squared shape piston closure.

This collection represented a change in Tom Ford's Gucci, one in which he described as “Las Vegas hippie,” and was, at the time, a step outside the stark minimalist silhouettes of collections past. The bright, colorful flowers in exaggerated prints were a "happy" juxtaposition to what came before.

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.
