This shoulder bag was first produced in the early 1970s. The structured shape is crafted in brown Square G suede and is complemented by two gold-toned metal G on both sides and a shoulder strap. Embossed in gold on the inside is 'Made in Italy by Gucci'. This shoulder bag 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 78 | 22 and will arrive in tailor-made packaging. This rare and beautiful piece should be handled with exceptional care.
In 1975 the request was made to the Ministry of Industry and Commerce to obtain the patent for the "checkerboard design in which squares are alternated with letters G, also in square form" (as mentioned in the patent) which was then issued in 1978. For the Cruise 2018 collection, Alessandro Michele reintroduced the Square G 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.
