Since the 2000s with love: the Gucci Horsebit is the most Y2K shoulder it-bag of the moment

mini bags

Horsebit 1955, Jackie 1961, the Gucci it-bags are the most desired and very soon the Horsebit 2003 chain will also be added, with Y2K vibes

We have already spotted it on the Milan Fashion Week catwalk, when Gucci presented its autumn/winter 2023-2024 collection , the first without the direction of Alessandro Michele: a revival of codes, combinations and combos that take up the Gucci fil rouge , that of a dress code that takes from the archives to join the present. And now that fashion has returned from the 2000s to the appeal of the it-bags that we will desire for next winter, the Horsebit 2003 could not fail to respond, proposed in that year under the direction of Tom Ford , whose touch will still echo for ever and ever of the house. A chain bag that revolutionizes shoulder bags, playing at becoming a clutch bag.

Horsebit Gucci 1955: the history of the bag fished out of the archives already in 2019 by Alessandro Michele

The taste for vintage, the revival, was the maximum expression and imprinting left by Alessandro Michele who has made his own a common thread dear to the maison. The Horsebit 1955, expression of the characteristic equestrian-inspired code of the maison, is distinguished by the horsebit, double circle and central bar: Michele has created a new line in 2019, presenting it as an it-bag with a classic taste, to be worn over the shoulder or on the shoulder .

There are many models: shopping, bucket, crossbody, hobo, re-edited from an it-bag born 60 years ago whose practicality is loved, its innate versatility of being able to feel good on any look without exceeding or minimizing. In the 2003 model Tom Ford developed one of its multiple nuances proposing a handbag version to hold in the hands, as we have seen done on the catwalk this year, already learning what will be the alternative to the Jackie 1960 or any other pochette.

Horsebit 2003: from Tom Ford to next winter, how to wear the house's chain bag

The soft, rolled and trapezoidal model that we saw on the catwalk and held in the hands of the models is the version taken from the 2000s and proposed by Tom Ford: in leather, to be carried by hand but also with a leather or chain shoulder strap, it is chain bag that multiplies the size of the iconic horsebit and retains the same stylistic nonchalance of its original inspiration.

It plays with materials, we also find it in plush, and with colors, almost fluorescent like orange. Elegant, office, street, casual looks, the Horsebit combines and marries beautifully with any outfit: held in the arms, it is the perfect expression of a woman's jealousy for her bag, guardian of the essentials but also of her secrets .
