There was a time when luxury brands were both innovative and stylish. They understood what was classic but also had their finger on the pulse on what was fresh. To be able to find something like this tossed aside in a vintage store speaks to our obsession with all things now & current. This was made by someone long ago with skill & pride in their craft and represented the brands commitment to excellence. I'll probably never walk in a Gucci store and find something as classy as this today. That's why I buy vintage.
