The bag is classically Gucci, crafted from the brand’s iconic GG Supreme coated canvas with contrasting leather details. However, the most iconic feature of this design is Gucci’s storied 1955 Horsebit, which is shown on the bag’s leather flap closure. A few things about this bag were surprising upon seeing it in person. First, it’s much larger than I previously would have thought, both in its width and its depth. Though it’s incredibly structured and the leather sides have little to no give, it holds a lot more than I would have thought after Megs covered the bag the first time around. Though stiff, the bag is incredibly easy to get in and out of, as the flap closure easily slides in and out of the leather tab. It’s important to note that there is no magnetic element at play here with this closure though I found the bag stayed securely closed.
All aspects of the Gucci 1955 Horsebit shoulder bag make it an excellent bag: a tribute to classics, monogram canvas or leather, clean lines, multiple interpretations and ideal overall dimensions. When you combine all the elements of a handbag, Gucci 1955 Horsebit is the best perfect handbag, and celebrities and influential people love the bag.
A new introduction to the Gucci Horsebit 1955 line, the mini top handle is crafted from the House’s monogram canvas with contrasting brown leather details. The collection unifies details first introduced on the original bag that inspired the line from over six decades ago with a modern spirit, highlighting the Horsebit. Part of Gucci’s genetic code, the double ring and bar design has been established as one of the most distinctive elements among the House symbols borrowed from the equestrian world.

Although we initially liked the overall appearance of this bag because of its vintage vibe, adjustable strap and iconic design, its quality and ease of use are as impressive as its appearance. I found this bag to be very easy to use and wear-no matter the size or style, it is the perfect everyday bag. The exquisite craftsmanship of this handbag is also very obvious. This is what a lot of designers say today when they are struggling with quality control issues.
