First debuted in 1961, the Jackie Bag has marked its place in the fashion world with the help of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Often spotted with the hobo bag over her shoulder, it quickly became known as Jackie O’s bag of choice and was eventually renamed after her.
In true Gucci fashion, this bag exemplifies Italian craftsmanship at its finest. The Gucci Jackie Bag is characterised by its half-moon shape, short shoulder strap and signature buckle closure. It has appeared in different colours and materials, several of which Jackie O was spotted with. The instantly recognisable hobo bag is most commonly offered in canvas, coated canvas or nylon with leather trim or plain leather. The styles crafted of soft leather have a slouchy look, while the coated canvas versions are more structured. Available colours include black, brown and red, but keep an eye out for the newer shades of pastel blue, pink and purple.
As a beloved part of the House’s history, the Jackie Bag has been redesigned throughout the decades by designers such as Tom Ford and most recently, Alessandro Michele. Although the bag has been resized slightly over time, Michele made the most notable adjustments when he reintroduced the bag in three different sizes (mini, small and medium) by the name Jackie 1961.
Whether you opt for a vintage bag or a more recent style, this Gucci Jackie Bag reflects Gucci’s jetsetter past while accommodating modern-day practically. This bag is the perfect everyday bag.
Let Jackie O be your inspiration: carry your everyday essentials in a soft leather hobo bag, put on a pair of giant sunglasses and wrap a silk scarf around your head.
