The Gucci Jackie 1961 History:
Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, or better known as “Jackie O.” will always be known for her classic style and iconic looks. However, the one piece that is the most iconic from her wardrobe was the Gucci G1244, which has now been renamed to the Gucci “Jackie 1961” bag. The former First Lady regularly went out with her Gucci leather tote and was often seen shielding herself with it from the paparazzi.
Jackie O. loved her bag so much and was seen wearing it so frequently, that eventually the Italian fashion house nicknamed it “the Jackie”. This year, the bag became an ultimate embodiment of Jackie’s timeless class and style when the brand officially renamed the bag to the Jackie 1961.
If there’s one thing to know about the fashion realm, it’s that trends come and go, so when it comes to investing in designer bags you want to make sure you’re purchasing a timeless piece.

Now, when it comes to investing in designer bags like these, it’s important to keep something in mind if you’re looking to purchase a timeless piece or a collector.
MY BIGGEST RECOMMENDATION:
When buying a timeless piece, it’s important to focus on the color you buy! If you want a timeless piece, avoid purchasing pieces that have bright patterns and fabrics that stand out. It will get old very quick and you will get so tired of it! Not to mention that the pattern will most likely go out of style after just a few seasons.
I would say, it’s safe to stick with neutral colors that will always stay in style and have a higher resale value. However, if you want some color go for it! View the whole collection here or learn more about the Gucci belt.
