FW 1999 Gucci by Tom Ford Runway Psychedelic Swirl Silk Velvet Hoop Bucket Bag


Gucci is renowned for its prints and the psychedelic swirl on this handbag is among its most iconic. The pattern of undulating ripples in emerald, garnet and gold was designed by Tom Ford during his heyday as creative director for the Italian fashion house. He was winning over fans—and raising critics’ brows, as well—by making luxurious looks for a woman he envisioned as sultry, bold and glamorous. The psychedelic swirl exemplified this, debuting in the fall 1999 runway collection for which Ford took the unbridled decadence of the Seventies disco era as his inspiration. He used the print in silk velvet on pants, skirts and purses, an example of which is prominently showcased in Florence’s Gucci Museo (image 2). This version features it in a bucket silhouette toted by a Lucite hoop handle that features a gunmetal Gucci logo and hardware. The exterior cleverly opens to reveal a roomy interior, black woven lining and zip pocket. Stow your essentials for a day or evening out in this accessory that is part of design history. Measurements Handle Drop: 9 inches Height: 9.5 inches Width: 9 inches Depth: 3.5 inches This vintage Gucci by Tom Ford bucket bag is in excellent condition. It is made with a Lucite hoop handle, gunmetal hardware, black woven interior, inside zip pocket and printed silk velvet exterior. The Gucci logo appears on the handle and in small script on the front. High-quality vintage pieces like this are yours to live in and love while increasing in value every year. It’s never too soon to start collecting them, as an investment in your wardrobe—and in yourself.
