Gucci Pre-Fall 2017 Velvet GG Marmont

Gucci

Ever so often I ‘stumble’ into Gucci’s website just to have a look to see what’s new at Italian luxury house, one that has taken ‘more-is-more-is-more’ to a whole new level and experiencing commercial success, with its robust sales proving that Alessandro Michele’s Gucci is here to stay.

Which brings us to today’s find, a bag introduced during Michele’s tenure and a classic-in-the-making, the GG Marmont. What’s different from these ones as opposed to the ones in calfskin or suede leathers that have preceded it is the addition of these intensely gorgeous floral appliqués and embroidery that really lives up to it being ‘more-is-more-is-more’ on the bag’s lush velvet body.

Available in a Black or Cobalt Blue with words like Modern and Loved splashed across it, these come in a medium size that measures some 30.5 cm wide and 19 cm high. With a rather long sliding chain sling, it will sit nicely under the arm when looped over twice on the shoulder, or can be easily worn across the body when the chain is fully unfurled.

On the inside you’ll find silk satin with sufficient compartments lined up, like an internal zip slot and smartphone pockets which will fit even the larger phones some of us have grown so used to. Spring the flap back shut and turn it around and you’ll find that the iconic embroidered heart is still there, just a little reminder that you’re always loved, especially when you feel down.

Speaking of Loved, this GG Marmont has the word detailed with pearls, which would explain its slightly higher price point of SGD3870 as compared to Modern which is priced at SGD3390.

For those who prefer something smaller (and cuter), there’s also this GG Marmont in Mini that comes in Cobalt Blue (SGD5480). Measuring 21.5 cm by13 cm, this little number comes embroidered with crystal dragonflies and flowers, a truly standout piece that will go with most anything in your wardrobe, provided you have the attitude to match.

Gucci GG Marmont Maxi

Gucci

Yes, while #smallisbeautiful, there are days when only the biggest of the big will do because deep down, we all have a size queen within us. And there’s nothing bigger (or more beautiful) than Gucci’s current Marmontoffering, known simply as the GG Marmont Maxi. Measuring some 44 cm across (yes, 44 cm or 17 inches across, which is even bigger than your ex will ever be) by 26 cm, what makes it even more alluring is the fact that it comes entirely covered with glossy floral-jacquard trimmed with matching green leather.

Priced at USD2832 (or just under SGD4000 after conversion) and available now via Net-A-Porter, it’s quite simply the best bag you’ll ever own if you ever need to a) take that overnight work trip, b) carry everything as well as your kitchen sink with you on a daily basis or c) because you believe that bigger is indeed always better. Which is more than you can say about your ex.
