The horsebit has been part of Gucci’s illustrious design vocabulary since the 1950s. Since then, it has been miniaturised and exaggerated as hardware, printed as pattern on silk and sculpted into precious jewellery. However, the Gucci horsebit loafer became a perennial fashion classic when it was added to the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s permanent collection in 1980. With a little bit of history and a whole lot of style, Gucci’s iconic horsebit loafer gets an update this season with a patent finish and a micro horsebit detail. Follow in the fancy footsteps of old Hollywood gentlemen like Fred Astaire and wear them with knit pullovers and nifty footwork.
