The minute I first spotted the Gucci 1955 Horsebit, I knew it would quickly become not only a house staple but also a major bag amongst handbag lovers. It has every aspect that makes a great bag today: a nod to a house classic, monogram canvas, clean lines, multiple renditions, and ideal overall dimensions. When you combine every element of this bag, the Gucci 1955 Horsebit is the perfect bag, and celebrities and influencers alike agree.
Alessandro Michele reintroduced this bag from the archives with his own updates, keeping many of the iconic defining elements. Front and center is the horsebit detailing, which is, of course, very Gucci. I like that it's smaller on the front of this bag, allowing the eye to spot it but not entirely distract attention from the overall design. The version I love features leather and monogram GG canvas, but there are full leather versions and ostrich if you desire as well.
The bag quickly made its way into the arms of major celebrities and influencers, being carried in every corner of the globe and only furthering its status as the bag to have. If you ask me, the Gucci 1955 Horsebit is the it bag to close out the decade.
