Paul Mescal Stars in Gucci's Horsebit 1953 Loafer Campaign

Joining actor and singer Xiao Zhan.

Gucci taps ambassadors Paul Mescal and Xiao Zhan to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Horsebit 1953 Loafer in its latest campaign.

The Normal People actor, alongside the Chinese singer, don the iconic shoe in both brown and black leather constructions, showcasing its timeless allure. The campaign demonstrates the classic footwear’s versatility as Mescal and Zhan effortlessly pair the loafers with formal tuxedo jackets as well as baggy dark-wash denim and basic white T-shirts. The loafer’s hallmark motif is the micro horse bit-a double ring, which embodies the Italian house’s rich history and exceptional craftsmanship. The heritage hardware transforms the quintessential preppy shape into a contemporary fashion piece.The sophisticated silhouette has easily become a signifier of class and comfort over the decades, traversing generations as it is a staple for equestrians, outdoors enthusiasts and well-dressed spectators alike.

Priced at $920, the Gucci Horsebit 1953 loafers are available on the brand’s online store. Take a look at the campaign in the gallery above.
