GUCCI model GG 1656S is a tiny gold metal pair of sunnies measuring only two centimeters in hight and three and a half centimeters in width per lens! This pair was made in Italy in the nineties, during the Tom Ford era at Gucci and is one of, if not the smallest GUCCI model made during Tom Ford’s creative leadership. Many interesting models were made in that “golden” period for the Gucci brand. We do not know the exact year and collection these sunglasses are from and are still looking for help to catalogue them properly.
The tiny model and frame is treated like a king because it comes in a dark gold protective box completely covered on the inside with relief GUCCI velvet, also in a dark gold tone with a gold tone dust cloth. All fits then snuggly into another cardboard GUCCI box, again in a dark gold one. Amazing decadence for the golden era of GUCCI design from the nineties!
The lenses are barely big enough to cover the size of the eyeball when the eye is open. They weigh practically nothing and one forgets one is wearing them after a couple of minutes of having them on the face. Big things really do come in small packages!
