Gucci has been synonymous to the equestrian tradition. The Italian brand has picked the perfect chance to honor the Chinese new year with its riding heritage that has inspired the house for over 90 years. The year of Snake will slither away as the year of Horse sets in on January 31, 2014. Gucci has been riding high with its signature horse bit feature and it’s the best time to race ahead with a China-exclusive collection of Bright Bit bags to pay respect to this year’s zodiac animal.
The eye-catching collection comprises of a clutch, a shoulder bag and a handbag, all shaped out of red patent leather. Since they are already renowned for their horse bit hardware, Gucci has steered clear of using any more horsey features.
The emphasis of using only red color also relates to the animal of the year. The bold collection glams up with a touch of gold hardware and stands out to represent success, luck and control. Also a metal tag stating “China Exclusive” is found inside each bag from this exclusive commemorative range.
