Fall 2020 is quickly approaching, and so are the new fashion trends to experiment with. In today’s series of FW20 must-haves, we bring you Gucci’s Jackie 1961 handbag. First created in 1961, became emblematic of the ‘60s and ‘70s jetsetter lifestyle for which the House was known. Jackie Kennedy was photographed with the bag so frequently it became known simply as “The Jackie.”

A key member of the Gucci bag family for many decades, the Jackie has been redesigned several times over the years. Its newest incarnation, designed by Creative Director Alessandro Michele, is the Jackie 1961. A fusion of his fascination with archival codes and contemporary vision, the bag re-emerges to transcend traditional accessories classifications with its non-binary attitude. In fact, Alessandro Michele debuted the Jackie 1961 at HIS men’s Fall Winter 2020 fashion show. Reduced in size and worn by both men and women in diverse looks — tailoring, grunge and clothes with shrunken proportions — the House’s recognizable bag assumed an entirely new character. – from Gucci
