Tom Ford’s tenure at Gucci was a key moment in fashion history. House of Gucci touched on the influence of the Texan designer’s impactful vision (he was creative director from 1994 to 2004), and caused a rush on vintage Gucci pieces from his decade at the house following the film’s release.
Kendall Jenner is one of many to invest in a slice of Ford’s Gucci. Jenner has been spotted with the GG monogrammed shoulder bag, which made its debut in Gucci’s spring/summer 2004 show, on several occasions since 2019. Most recently, she was seen with it slung over her shoulder in LA, styled with a baby cropped tee from Cherry LA, her cherished Khaite jeans, and Dmy by Dmy sunglasses.
The supermodel’s prized bag is the definition of Y2K style. The curvaceous trapezoid silhouette is catnip for millennials or Gen Z-ers on the hunt for a trophy Noughties piece. The monogrammed GG logo detailing, croc-embossed green and yellow strip and zingy metallic studs all add to the bag’s throwback appeal, but it’s the green hardware that makes it truly one of a kind. The centerpiece is a twist on Gucci’s signature horsebit: the rings are adorned with bejeweled snakes.
In December, Kendall stepped out with another of Ford’s bag designs. To attend an event to celebrate her 818 tequila brand, she wore a cherry-red Gucci bag slung over her shoulder. She styled it with a vintage Jean Paul Gaultier dress – another sought-after brand that’s attracting a flurry of interest on the resale market.
