With its slightly puffed quilted matelassé finishing, oversized hardware and slinky chain-and-leather sling, Gucci’s GG Marmont firmly established itself as a key staple of the storied fashion house. It managed to achieve its cult status with a relatively simple silhouette and the right tactile appeal.
The term ‘mini’ is used generically at Gucci, and various incarnations may carry slightly different dimensions from season to season. For example, the current Spring-Summer collection sees a new squarish format which measures 18 cm wide and 15 cm high.
While it might not be apparent from the front, the bag also boasts a roomy 8 cm base. Thus it can hold more than you think at first glance. The 58 cm drop length chain strap is also removable. Though you will likely keep it on to sling diagonally across the body for a less formal look.
Priced at SGD3140, the updated GG Marmont Mini Shoulder Bag is available in black and white leather with antique gold-tone hardware. On the hunt for a timeless Gucci design that will never go out of style? This is a strong (and cute) contender for sure.
