About Gucci’s Jackie: The Jackie is the perfect symbol of the bohemian style that was very popular during the sixties and seventies. It was the first hobo bag, which inspired many fashion houses and labels to design a similar design, instantly recognizable for its signature push-lock closure and rounded edges. By the time Jackie Onassis began wearing the piece regularly in the early 1980s, she was a fashion icon for women around the world, so her endorsement of the shoulder-slung piece helped it attain instant cult status. The bag has later been reimagined by Frida Giannini and Alessandro Michele.
