The Jackie bag was originally created in 1961, hence why the re-edition is called the Jackie 1961, and it was re-released in the summer of 2020 to much fanfare. Like the original model, which became synonymous with the fashion jet-setter lifestyle of the 60s and 70s, the Jackie 1961 became highly sought-after from its debut. It has been carried by many fashion muses like actresses, models, and influencers alike. One of those very muses stars in Gucci’s latest campaign, spotlighting the Gucci Jackie 1961 and celebrating its rise back to the top.
Celebrating a House Mainstay
Known for its half-moon shape and instantly recognizable sleek piston hardware, the Jackie 1961 has been reinvigorated in an array of new sizes, colors, and exciting materials since it was re-introduced.
