Gucci Marmont handbags are becoming an instant favourite. The fresh updated look of the Gucci brand has definitely put Gucci on the map again as the it bag to have. Read below my review of the latest Gucci bag I added to my collection, the Gucci GG Marmont Matelassé Mini Bag.
For those that prefer their designer handbags to go unnoticed the double G closure in the front is definitely not a humble feature of the bag. The oversized GG logo of the Gucci Matelassé mini may be a bit too much for some. I personally love it and it is what makes the bag stand out. I also love the antique matte yellow hardware which is very lightweight and you can easily wear a sleeveless shirt without worrying about the hardware digging into your skin.
Measuring 8.5″W x 5.5″H x 1″D inches, the GG Marmont Matelassé Mini Bag fits only the essentials, and I mean it! I can fit my cellphone (iphone 7 Plus, my keys, a lipstick and maybe a pack of gum if I am lucky. The great thing about this bag is that it has its own card slots so you don’t have to worry about adding a card holder. It is a really small bag. After I purchased this bag they came out with a slightly bigger version of it which measures 8″W x 5″H x 2.5″D. That bag also has 16 card slots and two bill compartments, and three separate interior compartments. In contrast, the Marmont Matelassé Mini Bag I purchased has way less size credit card slots and only one zip pocket. The smaller size I got is still a functional wallet on a chain bag, and if you are looking for a smaller bag to take out on a girl’s night or a casual evening with your date, this is definitely the right choice.
To Buy or Not
My answer is a bit bias when it comes to the GG Marmont Matelassé Mini Bag because I am not a fan of small purses. Despite how much I love this GG Marmont Matelassé Mini Bag, this purse gives me anxiety. I have to limit myself to how many items I can bring with me, and honestly the bag fits only essentials. The size is perfect for a night out or attending an event, where you do not have to bring a lot of things with you, so from that sense I am really happy I purchased the bag.
The Gucci GG Marmont Matelassé mini is pretty simple, but a great investment if you love mini bags. The giant GG definitely dress up the bag, but if you’re looking for a timeless, sophisticated bag with a modern twist, consider this for your collection!
