Documented 1969 Gucci Logo Canvas and Leather Trim Tunic Mini Dress
The Gucci logo pieces are well documented and finding a dress from that time period id a treat. Variations of this dress are well documented having been featured in editorials from the time period. Versions of it also are currently on display in the permanent exhibit hall at the House of Gucci in Florence.This particular dress has the added modern provenance of being worn by Erin Wasson who was lent it from our archives.
This dress is absolutely gorgeous and is instantly recognizable. The cut is a forgiving shift shape that falls fairly straight from the shoulders to the waist and then flares out a bit more to the hem. It is technically a tunic as the sides are slit right up to the buckles you see on each side. But with something underneath it can certainly be worn as a mini like Erin did. The entire dress is finished with a a piping of leather. It crosses over itself at the front to create a V neck and the it hooks inside and then buckles into place on the other side. The buckles are a braided gold metal and sit on each hip. The print is that classic double G logo print on the same canvas fabric that was used for their bags during this time. This is a true piece of fashion history and feels as modern now as it did when it was created. Excellent condition with a note below.
Fully lined in a golden taupe silk and slips on to wear. It hooks on the inside and buckles at each side of the exterior. When laying flat it looks like one shoulder is higher then the other. I think it was stored and this affected the shape a bit. You might find moving the inner hook to where the dress lies on you best. Old style, stamped leather Gucci label present. The easy fit will allow it to work a a range of sizes.
