Gucci Flora Handbag

Gucci Flora Handbag

This bag is part of an exclusive limited edition collection launched in 2014 to commemorate 50 years of Gucci in the island nation of Japan. The ‘Flora’ design has a rich history, having originally been created as a special gift for Grace Kelly!

In 1966, the immortal Grace Kelly arrived in Milan with her husband, Prince Rainier of Monaco, and chose to visit the Gucci boutique on Via Montenapoleone.

The owner of that store was Rodolfo Gucci, son of Guccio, and for the occasion he chose to give the princess something very special.

He decided to commission a design from illustrator, painter, and set designer Vittorio Accornero de Testa, who worked with the Italian fashion house between 1960 and 1981, for a silk scarf to give to Grace Kelly.

Accornero de Testa created over 80 scarves for Gucci, but the one that changed the history of the entire House and of this accessory was “Flora”.

A delicate and enchanting botanical-floral composition with grafting berries and insects depicted with the care of a naturalist, consisting of 37 vibrant colors on a white background. The 9 bouquets depicted are composed of: lilies, ivy, poppies, cornflowers, daffodils, ranunculus, anemones, tulips and irises. We also find a series of insects as we said including, butterflies, dragonflies, bees, butterflies, beetles and grasshoppers.

Accornero de Testa does not make use of the specular repetition of the subjects but focuses on each design in its entirety, a much more complex and expensive choice to make.
