Retro-style ties and footwear from Gucci

Wide shantung-silk ties and fancy snaffle bits on shoes and boots add a touch of swagger this season

I’m gunning for Gucci’s new wide, retro-style ties, which work well with the burgeoning trend for wide-lapel, double-breasted suits. A horseshoe-printed shantung silk tie (£260), available in maroon and navy or chocolate and cream, is a bold 14cm; another shantung style (£260), in an orange and chocolate paisley or a grey and ivory lozenge print, is like a cross between a tie and a foulard and comes with a pre‑knotted Windsor. In a similarly exuberant vintage mode, Gucci’s new footwear is embellished with fancy interpretations of a snaffle bit, seen on black leather and grey lizardskin boots (£2,130) or dusty-pink leather and grey lizard moccasins (£1,150).
