"Squares of tweed within a square
A ribbon border holds them there
Linked by Horsebits and G’s that chase
Each other round an ivory base."

Vintage tweed print silk scarf, 1970s

This scarf was first produced in the late 1970s and is made in silk with an ivory background and border and multicolored "Tweed" print framed by Interlocking G Horsebit and Web. This scarf was selected by the Creative Director and Vault archivists for its particularity, character and exceptional vintage condition, and it was reconditioned to the highest standard by in-house artisans. It has been given the number 92 | 21 and will arrive in tailor-made packaging. This rare and beautiful piece should be handled with exceptional care.

The Story

The Horsebit, composed of a double ring and a bar, was used in the 1950s primarily as a decorative motif for closures on handbags. Soon, it established itself as one of the most iconic elements among the symbols that Gucci borrowed from the equestrian world. Here, the Horsebit is paired with the Interlocking G and Web, which frames a pattern that resembles tweed.

As the years accumulate, every mark or crease is collected onto the surface, continuously altering the item’s appearance and making it completely unique. Imperfections should be expected and treasured as the journey continues for this piece.
