Gucci’s equestrian culture runs deep and can be most exemplified with the legendary horse bit symbols and saddle detailing weaved into its collections that trace its heritage back to the founding of the brand in 1921.
EEM’s CEO Christophe Ameeuw stated, “We are unbelievably grateful that our relationship with Gucci continues to develop across the Master Series on all three continents. The Saturday evening at the Masters, with the Gucci Gold Cup promises a night of great sport and glamour”.
