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.

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 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 unique. Imperfections should be expected and treasured as the journey continues for this piece.
