In keeping with tradition, Frida Giannini, the creative director at the Italian couture brand, has designed a special edition scarf for the Gucci Paris Masters 2013 equestrian jumping competition, taking place December 5-8 this year.
As the main sponsor of the annual international equestrian competition, Gucci has set a precedent of introducing an exclusive silk twill scarf to mark each edition of the event. These exceptional pieces are decorated by hand using a watercolor dye technique.
The 2013 edition scarf, measuring 90 cm by 90 cm, is adorned with Gucci’s signature green-red-green ribbon pattern. There are also other images associated with the brand and with the equestrian theme, such as stylized horse heads, riding stirrups and bridles.
The limited edition Gucci Paris Masters 2013 scarf will go on sale in the brand’s pop-up store in the “Village” outside of the event this December. Price: €295 (around $400).
