Gucci is embracing the Year of the Horse. Not only is the company continuing to sponsor the Longines Hong Kong Masters - Asia's only five-star indoor show jumping event - it's also welcoming American champion show jumper Jessica Springsteen (pictured) to its team of Equestrian Ambassadors, which already includes Monaco royal Charlotte Casiraghi, show jumper Edwina Tops-Alexander and French actor Guillaume Canet.

In honour of the appointment, the brand has dedicated an equestrian collection to Springsteen. It will prominently feature the Gucci crest, which was designed in the 1950s and reintroduced in 2008. Gucci's new women's collection, and the first men's collection, will be available from next month.
