THE WORLD’S ELITE SHOW JUMPERS COMPETE IN THE FOURTH ANNUAL GUCCI PARIS MASTERS

December 3rd, Paris - The fourth edition of the Gucci Paris Masters took place at the Parc des Expositions in Villepinte, Paris. Passionate equestrian riders and friends of the House were invited to attend several competitions throughout the three day event.

Saturday marked the first highlight of the weekend with The Style & Competition for Amade Challenge, orchestrated by Gucci-sponsored Charlotte Casiraghi. This competition paired 5-star professional riders and talented amateurs into 12 teams of two, each with different sponsors. The competitors were judged by Xavier de Moulins, Vincent Perez and Virginie Couperie Eiffel, on behalf of Gucci.

A 180.000 euro donation went to AMADE Mondiale, of which H.R.H Princess Caroline de Hanover is the President. Gucci sponsored two teams, the first with Charlotte Casiraghi and Edwina Tops-Alexander (on page 1), who took 3rd place in Competition and 1st in Style, and the second featuring Alex Hua Tian and Jessica Springsteen (on the right).
The culmination of the three days was The Gucci Grand Prix, which carried a prize of 300.000 euro, and brought together the best 44 riders in the world.

Gucci Creative Director, Frida Giannini, has designed a beautiful silk twill foulard in honor of Gucci’s sponsorship of the Gucci Paris Masters to support Amade (the World Association of Children's Friends) chaired by HRH Princess of Hanover, for the promotion and protection of children's rights on an international level.

Measuring 90 cm x 90 cm, the foulard’s unique design, marries the rosette symbol from the Gucci archives with the iconic Gucci graphic green and red web stripe. One of the rosettes features the AMADE logo. The beauty of this one of a kind piece lies in its impeccable craftsmanship. Underscoring the exclusivity of the event and this tribute piece, the scarf is a limited edition on sale during the Gucci Masters in Gucci’s temporary store and in the Gucci boutiques in Paris for two months.  Gucci will make a donation of 20.000 euros to Amade for its charities from the sales of this foulard.
