Here it is in flesh the GG Marmont Matelassé Shoulder Bag in bubblegum pink.

Gucci’s GG Marmont bag is an instant upgrade to my daily outfits. Even when I am spotted in my slob chic outfits when I walk Margot, if I add this bag into the mix I take my outfit game to the next level. The bag takes the matelassé part of its name from the leather the bag is actually made of. Matelassé chevron leather. I didn’t even know this was a type of leather. I just thought it was a fancy name they added as part of the bag’s name. I love designer handbags, but I am the worst when it comes to remembering their names or what leather they are made out of for that matter.

The reason why I fell in love with this bag is because of its colour. The bubblegum pink with antique gold toned hardware and an interlocking logo plaque; I was sold at our first glance. The double G is what I call in your face logo galore, but the bag wouldn’t be the same without it. I think what makes the bag is the large GG logo. In small size, the bag also comes in white, dusty pink, light grey and black.

There are three sizes available in this design: mini, small and medium. Mine is the medium and the largest size this bag goes up to. I am able to fit comfortably all the items that I usually carry in my Kate Spade tote, except of course my agenda. I also love how I have the option to either wear the handbag as a crossbody or a shoulder bag. Having an adjustable chain strap is essential. Also, just as crucial is the fact that one strap of this handbag is leather and the other is a brass chain strap. If this bag only had a chain strap I would have most likely not purchased it. Chain straps, especially when it is a large handbag, kills your shoulders. There is also the  GG Marmont chain mini bag, you can read my review for that bag here. 

Verdict: To Purchase or Not

Yes! I absolutely love this bag. From the color to the hardware and the leather used, it is definitely a must-have bag. Most of my purses are made of lambskin leather, and I have such a hard time taking care of them. The matelassé chevron leather care of the Gucci Marmont is a piece of cake to maintain compared to my Balenciaga City bag, which is only a couple of months old, but the leather has already aged significantly.  GG Marmont will become a classic designer bag for sure. It combines versatility with femininity, and even though it has a modern design, there are timeless elements. If you’re looking for a stylish crossbody bag that is both a versatile everyday bag and a durable leather handbag, the Gucci Marmont is the perfect choice.

    The type of material used leather especially has to be100% pure no compromises on that and if you want you can go in for dark shades for winter and light shades for summer. Ipad clutch
