Gucci Special
Introduced last year, this Gucci bag is more stylish than ever

The compact Gucci 1955 Horsebit bag made its debut at the fashion house's cruise 2020 show amongst the romantic ruins of Ancient Rome and quickly became the essential handbag of such stylish stars as Sienna Miller and Elle Fanning. 

Creative director Alessandro Michele composed the desirable details based on Gucci's long-term love affair with equestrian - for instance, the signature gold-toned double ring and bar is enhanced with strong, modern shapes in various patterns and sizes.

The Horsebit 1955 bag is refreshed for Gucci's spring/summer 2020 runway - reimagined in 3 modish forms. 

The Dome Bag

Literally reaching for new heights, the Horsebit 1955 bag is elongated into the Dome bag. Styled in various materials such as textured leather, precious skin and the classic GG Supreme canvas, the bag also features funky prints. The detachable leather strap allows you to easily transform the bag from a tote to a shoulder bag to fit any occasion.  

The Duffle Bag

Rolling into "luggage" territory, the Gucci 1955 Horsebit also comes in a small duffle version complete with its own leather ID tag. But it looks so stylish, we wouldn't mind taking it into the boardroom.

The statement piece in the collection undoubtedly belongs to the burgundy version, which also appears in one of the campaign images, complemented with a gorgeous steed.

The Backpack

Designed for the adventurous soul.

Giving a shoutout to hip-again '80s fashion, the Horsebit 1955 backpack is described as a genderless accessory. This playful and functional bag is designed with a front zip pocket and is available in coloured leather of black, red and white as well as ebony GG Supreme. 

Bonus: The Rise of Dionysus

Looking for something extra to add to your collection? Named after the Roman God of Wine, the elaborate Dionysus bag is unique for its textured tiger head closure – a reference to Dionysus crossing the river Tigris on a tiger sent to him by Zeus.

It has been given a new style with a top handle and luxe combinations of precious snakeskin. A special version is introduced in black python and cinched with an enamelled blue buckle. 


Extra Bonus: Everybody Loves Sylvie

The Sylvie 1969 is available in various designs and materials such as toupe lizard and textured leather. (Swipe left to see these designs)
