Glamour takes on a new form with Gucci’s Horsebit 1955 and Jackie 1961 mini bags, with each piece given extra shine thanks to the addition of crystals all over the camel/ebony GG canvas. And with the brilliant touch of crystals and gold-tone hardware adding to its allure and charm, these statement-making handbags are perfect for evening soirées.
While both are considered mini sizes at Gucci, each comes in a slightly different format. The Horsebit 1955 has a structured shape measuring 20.5 cm wide and 14 cm high, with the iconic horsebit clasp setting the tone on the front flap. The extra chain sling (28 cm drop length) will allow you to sling the bag over the shoulder, though you can always remove it to hold the bag like a chic clutch.
Of the two, the Jackie 1961 seems like the dressier option with a smaller profile at 19 cm by 13 cm. It also comes with a top handle, as well as a secondary chain sling that’s long enough to be slung across the body. The defining piston clasp and half-moon shape are all iconic elements of the Jackie, all shrunken down to a miniature format that’s still chic yet functional.
Both bags are retailing at SGD5490, available in limited quantities at Gucci’s flagship boutique in Marina Bay Sands. Whether you love the structured Horsebit 1955 or the dressy Jackie 1961, the Italian fashion house has got you all covered with mini bags that come with extra sparkle.
