The model of this belt first appears in the artisans' notebook, dated 1968-1977 with code G1501. This belt is crafted in brown suede with a gold-toned metal Horsebit on the front attached with brown leather. On each side is a Horseshoe, one in gold-toned metal and one in silver-toned metal. 'Made in Italy by Gucci' is embossed in gold on the interior. This belt 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 72 | 21 and will arrive in tailor-made packaging. This rare and beautiful piece should be handled with exceptional care.

The Story

Deep brown suede wraps around the waist and comes to a close with the centered Horsebit. Part of Gucci’s genetic code, the double ring and bar design has been established as one of the most distinctive elements among the House symbols borrowed from the equestrian world.

Playing with a more asymmetric design, a Horseshoe decorates each side of the belt but they are crafted in different colored metals, silver and gold.

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.
