Guillaume Canet

  • Love it 0

After the success of ongoing partnerships with Charlotte Casiraghi and leading female show jumper Edwina Tops-Alexander, Gucci is pleased to present Guillaume Canet as the first male sponsorship partner wearing an exclusive equestrian line designed by Creative Director Frida Giannini.
Best-known for his extensive body of work in France and abroad, including The Beach (2000), Tell No One (2006), for which he won the Cesar award for Best Director, Farwell (2009), Last Night (2010), War of Bottons (2012) and Blood ties (2013), his latest American film selected for the Cannes Film Festival, Canet is also a passionate show jumper, having competed with the junior French National Equestrian Team in his youth. After one of his most recent films, Jappeloup (2013), about the life of a lawyer who gave up his career to pursue professional show-jumping before eventually winning the 1988 Summer Olympics, Canet has decided to return to the equestrian world.
Canet’s first official outing in Gucci colors is at the Global Championship Tour (GCT) in Monaco from June 27th to 29th where he will partner with Edwina Tops-Alexander for the Pro-am Cup.  As with Ms. Casiraghi and Edwina, Guillaume’s competition wardrobe includes clothing and accessories specially designed for him by Giannini. In keeping with the collection’s ties to Gucci’s equestrian heritage, the pieces prominently feature the iconic Gucci crest logo over a black background.

Guillaume recently won the “Prix Licarzo” (CSI 1*) at the Cannes Jumping International, which is part of the GCT, and will continue to compete on this circuit throughout the year, with upcoming stops in Chantilly and Lyon. He will also sport the House’s riding wardrobe at the Gucci Paris Masters from December 5th to 8th 2013.
