In today’s post I would like to offer you a complete Gucci Horsebit 1955 Bag Review and introduce you to the latest addition to my handbag collection, the beautiful Gucci Horsebit 1955 bag, which I gave myself for my birthday.
After much thought in a year of very rare shopping, my choice fell on Gucci Horsebit Bag in black, one of the newest Gucci bags.
I’ve bought my Gucci Horsebit last year, but since then Gucci has made a whole range of designs of this gorgeous bag.
Among the new variants is the delightful Gucci 1955 Mini with additional two-tone shoulder strap that is proving very popular.

After evaluating the Gucci Horsebit 1955 bag in different colors, my choice fell firmly on the black Gucci 1955.
As for many other bags, in fact, I find that black is able like almost no other color to bring out the beauty of a bag’s design.
Like other Gucci handbag models, the Horsebit 1955 bag is actually part of a small line of bags and accessories from the luxury brand.
The design by Alessandro Michele echoes the Gucci brand’s equestrian tradition, with the distinctive metal horsebit adorning the Gucci Horsebit 1955 and the other models in the same line.
The bag, in fact, is available in a number of variations including:
An interesting variation of the classic Gucci 1955 is undoubtedly the Gucci Horsebit bucket tote bag, very pretty and suitable for women of all ages.
Another variant of Gucci 1955 horsebit to evaluate is the wallet version with chain, or Gucci Horsebit WOC version.
Equipped with a handy detachable gold chain, it doubles up from Gucci horsebit wallet into a delightful evening bag.
THE GUCCI HORSEBIT BAG: A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY
First unveiled with the 2020 Cruise collection, the Gucci Horsebit 1955 bag reinterprets an archival design from the Gucci luxury maison.
With lines and shapes introduced in the Sixties, the accessory combines details from that era with a modern spirit, focusing on the metal horsebit element.
Part of the brand’s genetic code, this detail is in fact one of Gucci’s most iconic symbols, borrowed from the riding world. On this medium sized shoulder bag, with front flap, the logo is then combined with different leathers, monogrammed fabrics or colors.
Complemented by an easily adjustable shoulder strap, the Gucci Horsebit Bag can be carried on the shoulder or crossbody.
GUCCI HORSEBIT BAG FEATURES
The horsebit, the brand’s signature equestrian-inspired element, is the hallmark of this new collection of Gucci 1955 Horsebit bags, shoes and other accessories, along with the new adjustable shoulder strap for carrying on the shoulder or on the shoulder.
The vintage spirit of the collection is combined with the extreme functionality provided by the proportions of the design and the softness of the materials.
