    Does anyone know what year or era this Gucci Jolicoeur mini is from? I recently purchased it from Fashionphile. The charms, esp. the clutch charm, make me think Tom Ford era but perhaps not.

    Thanks for the help!

  3. Hello fellow vintage lovers, I just bought this vintage Gucci bag- I have not received it yet but I am already Thinking about how I could polish this baby up.
    How would you care for the leather parts? Should I use leather conditioner? Leather sheen?
    Any experience with dying this kind leather?

  4. Slightly later, mid '00s
     
  5. Don't dye it. A neutral leather creme with or without beeswax will be all that's needed. It's probably boar so sheen comes with use and being well cared for and not artificially.

  8. Awesome! I actually don't remember this at all. Of course, my obsession didn't start until the 80's Bostons that we all had back then. Lovin' this, PT. I thought this emblem was a new thing. See...you always managed to school me!! :P

  9. There's always more things to learn about Gucci, for me too of course. You have a very fine collection.

    One thing we have all learned through the years as this thread has progressed is that Gucci often bring variations of the same model every 10 - 20 years. The 'Padlock' bag came out in the 1950s, then in the 1980s, again the in the 1990s and once again 2015. Next year they will be bringing the horse-bit back so be on the lookout for older versions of those. It's not the giant horse-bit of the 00s which I also like but a very ladylike scale.

    In 2 years time Gucci will be a century old. We all need to start saving, especially me.

  14. Hello! Just purchased this vintage leather bag and was hoping someone could help put an approximate year to it. From what I’ve read in this thread I’m guessing 70s? Any insight is appreciated, thanks! 78FD4C45-B3A8-4B6A-916C-B8E273C6E205.jpeg BF299DCF-63B2-4708-BF54-58FEA9059A40.jpeg 497F790C-9475-4ECF-855B-46BEF665957C.jpeg CE769283-76A4-4B4E-9B39-AC669A1F672E.jpeg
