Fall is here ....even in Los Angeles!  Here is a Gucci long sweater in beige with the iconic racing stripe and an attached shawl to keep you warm. Gucci's history has been filled with iconic images and most importantly the green and red racing stripe, born from the canvas strap used to hold saddle's to a horse's back. The stripe, inspired by a Tuscan tradition was developed in the 50's and has since become one of the hallmarks of Gucci. Used in accessories, clothing and even car interiors, as in Cameron Silver's Gucci personalized Fiat 500. The racing stripe has definitely made a come back especially with the new Gucci Creative Director Frida Giannini. The stripe has returned, but for those who never forgot the magic of Gucci and want to be part of best dressed fashion bunch, here's the original. 

Gucci knitted sweater with iconic racing stripe, c. 1970's. Marked size 46. SOLD
