Part of the 1972 collection, a brown Horsebit motif defines this beige wool coat. Gold-toned and wood metal buttons with brown enamel decorate the front, while the interior has the Gucci crest with a 'Made in Italy' embroidery. This coat 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 18 | 21 and will arrive in tailor-made packaging. This rare and beautiful piece should be handled with exceptional care.
Beige fabric is decorated with printed Horsebits—a symbol that transcends its equestrian roots and connects the piece to the '50s, the decade it was first introduced. Part of Gucci’s genetic code, the double ring and bar Horsebit design has been established as one of the most distinctive elements among the House.
As soon as you hold a piece of the Vault, you begin to write a new chapter of its story—instituting a relationship, rather than an ownership, that will forever connect one owner to the next. 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.
