A soft leather wallet in brown with a dark brown suede center band introduced in the late 1960s. The Horsebit decorates the front with a gold-toned metal plate. The interior has 'Made in Italy by Gucci' embossed in gold. This wallet 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 59 | 21 and will arrive in tailor-made packaging. This rare and beautiful piece should be handled with exceptional care.
The soft leather of the wallet is intercepted by a suede detail down the center of the silhouette. The gold-toned Horsebit has a subtle metal plate at the center and is held by two leather pieces. The Gucci Horsebit transcends its equestrian roots and connects the wallet to the '50s, when it was first introduced, to the present day where it is one of the most iconic elements used.
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.
