Introducing the Gucci GG Marmont Bags

Those who are interested in fashion all know that the Gucci Marmont bag collection has been very popular since its first debute.

Designed by the fashion house's Creative Director, Alessandro Michele, the Gucci GG Marmont bags were released in 2016.

The collection consists of shoulder bags, top handle bags, bucket bags, camera bags, belt bags, etc. The most popular among them is the flap bag that can be worn as a shoulder bag or a crossbody.

The materials are varying from matelassé leather, velvet, canvas, python leather, and it can be bought in different sizes: Super Mini, Mini, Medium, Large and Maxi.

Important questions to consider before buying a bag 

First of all, you must know if you can afford it, or not. You have to think over on what occassions and how often you want to use the bag. You should choose the appropriate color, which depends on the season or occassion you want to wear it. Last but not least, you should find the best size that fit for you.

I have read somewhere that women who are self-confident usually have a smaller bag, while those who lack of self-confidence, prefer bigger ones. Well, it's not that simple. I couldn’t really imagine for a very long time that I would ever wear a so-called crossbody, but it changed since I bought my first Gucci bag.

Yes, we all know the important aspects we have to check before making a purchase but very often a 'love at first sight' overwrites everything. This happened to me as well, when I fell in love with one of the most beautiful bags I have ever seen, the Gucci GG marmont bag.

At first, I couldn’t decide which color to choose because I really liked nearly all of them, especially the white, black and red ones. Then, I caught sight of this gold Gucci GG marmont bag which is studded with faux pearls.

This attractive limited edition model was also released in 2016. It was available in black, gold, nude and silver colors.

My bag is a mini size which means it has got the following measurements: W22cm x H13cm x D6cm.

It is made of soft calfskin and embellished with imitation  pearls and golden studs. The GG signiture logo closure at the front is also beautified with faux pearls. The back of the bag is also enriched with pearls and studs.

The interior of the bag is made of pink satin and nude calfskin.

The bag has a gold-toned adjustable chain strap, so you can wear it as a crossbody, or a shoulder bag, as well. The interior of the bag is large enough to put a wallet, a phone, a powder compact, a lipstick and keys into it.

The capacity of a Gucci GG Marmont bag

Despite the small size, the bag is absolutely functional, however, it's definitely not suitable to put larger things into it. Its size is exactly perfect for the purpose of wearing it as a crossbody. A larger bag hanging in front of your body would be a bit bothering.

I love this bag very much, but I must confess that I could not resist the temptation to buy another beauty from Gucci, which is similar to this one, the Gucci GG marmont matelassé flapbag in white.:)

There are a few differences between the two bags. Firstly, there is an embroidered heart on the back of the white one.

Finally, if you open the flap closure the interior is made of white leather and camel suede.

Secondly, the Double G logo on the flap closure is made of antique gold-toned hardware which is resilient to scratches. Thirdly, the chain-link shoulder strap is antique gold, which adds a more chic and elegant look to it.

Though the bag is made of soft leather, the shape won't be deformed through the years. If you touch the bag you will feel how silky smooth leather it has.

Are Gucci Marmont bags  worth buying?

My answear is definetly yes, beacuse they are durable and fashionable. As these bags are very popular and one of the most sought-after items, they  have a high resale value. I purchased my bags for 750 € each and the prices are currently between 1050 and 1400 €.

Why are they so popular?

They are really very trendy, so you can frequently see them on the shoulders of celebrities, too. Chiara Ferragni, the world's number 1 fashion influencer and Gigi Hadid, the world famous supermodel were the first celebrities to be seen with the Gucci GG Marmont bag and it became one of the most beloved bags among well-known personalities since then.

What is the final conclusion?

The Gucci Marmont Bag is undoubtedly a bag I would recommend for everybody. This stylish bag will never go out of fashion and I promise that wearing this bag will make you stand out from the crowd.

My opinion is that this is the bag that perfect for every generation. As it became a must-have bag from the very first moment, every woman should have one in her wardrobe.
