Gucci has adopted an all-new approach for its beloved GG Marmont line of bags for Pre-Fall 2019, coming in materials that are right on trend and frankly perfect for all your upcoming vacation escapades. Gone is the quilted matelassé leather body and in its place comes several new designs rendered in raffia or straw.
A key piece to keep an eye out for would be the GG Marmont Raffia Small Shoulder Bag (SGD2730), one that features an intricate crochet floral motif pattern on the exterior that’s completely woven from raffia. The 26 cm by 20 cm bag comes in two versions (decorated in either Black or Green/Red leather trims), with a roomy cotton linen interior that will hold several daily essentials like a lip balm, portable charger and a compact wallet, for starters.
And because Gucci knows that some of you ladies love carrying a great deal of stuff on the weekends (especially the Mum who needs to keep everything for her family within easy reach), they have created a tote bag version of the raffia shoulder bag, coming in at 32 cm by 23 cm that’s great for throwing everything you need within. Raffia has the ability to remain lightweight, yet sturdy enough to hold all your barang barang, with the GG Marmont Raffia Tote Bag (SGD3080) equipped with double chain straps so you can slide it easily over the shoulder to keep your hands free while on the go.
As for those who prefer something familiar, you can opt for the GG Marmont Matelassé Chevron Raffia Small Shoulder Bag (SGD3250) which looks like a canvas version of the GG Marmont flap bag from afar. In fact, it’s made entirely from raffia while retaining all the classic elements (chevron patterned exterior with a heart stitched at the back), essentially perfect for the lady who is all about channelling her greatest boho-chic vibes all year round. Measuring 26 cm by 15 cm, this eclectic bag comes with a gorgeous rose print viscose lining with a zippered compartment tucked within, finished with cream and brown snakeskin trims on the exterior for an additional touch of luxe.
All 4 pieces are currently available now at Gucci boutiques islandwide. Now, which have you got your eye on?
