The return of the Gucci horsebit

Frida Giannini, designer for Gucci, is bringing back the horsebitThe horsebit has long been an icon of the House of Gucci. Found on many of its bags, shoes, and belts, the horsebit showed up once again in the brand's Fall 2011 collection in the form of a golden pendant, a look that was reminiscent of vintage jewelry worn throughout the past decades.

The collection, described by Fibre2Fashion.com as "film noir in color," was marked with a bold color palette as well as accessories such as fur shawls and fedoras. Also featured were glam pieces from the 70s – seductive flowing dresses and flared pants with gold accessories and patent leather.

The horsebit appeared on long golden chains, where the pendant hung low and was complemented by highly provocative outfits. The vintage jewelry feel of the collection allowed the outfits to stand out without seeming cliché and dated.

Those who unfortunately may not be able to get their hands on such a piece should look into purchasing a simple gold pendant and a long chain – pay tribute to the styles of yesteryear and you're bound to look sensational.
