Gucci Karung Snakeskin - Leather Jackie Hobo Bag

Condition: Excellent

Designer bags come and go with the times, but few are as eternally classic as the Gucci Jackie bag. Designed in the 1950s, the Jackie bag was originally called the Fifties Constance. But when former first lady Jackie Kennedy was famously photographed shielding herself from the paparazzi with one of these bags in the 1970s, it became synonymous with her chic sense of style - and her name.

Founded in Florence in 1921, Gucci represents world class luxury, Italian heritage and modern style.

The House of Gucci, better known as simply Gucci is an Italian iconic fashion and leather goods label. The House of Gucci was founded in 1921 by the master upholsterer Guccio Gucci as a workshop for leather goods in Florence. Gucci became well-known in 1947 after introducing a handbag with a bamboo handle, which is still popular today. Over the years, Gucci built a reputation for its excellent quality, hiring only the best craftsmen to work in its atelier. In 1951 the first Gucci store was opened in Milan. In 1953, Guccio Gucci died, and the business was passed on to his four sons who opened the first overseas Gucci store in Manhattan the same year. In the ’60s Gucci introduced their timeless designs: lush butterfly and floral patterns, the original Gucci loafer, and the double-G logo for buckles and other accessories. Frida Giannini is the current creative director of the entire Gucci brand.
