Just What You Need: the GG Marmont Shoulder Bag

We’ve been so obsessed with big bags lately, but big bags tend to be a bit of a back-breaker throughout the day. Smaller bags aren’t miniscule anymore. And with a shoulder bag like Gucci’s GG Marmont, carrying all day should be all right.

Marmont bags are quilted in what is called matelassé. This pattern carries out throughout the entire line of Marmont bags under Gucci. And one of the things I don’t quite get but nevertheless a wonderful surprise is that these bags have a nice heart shaped stitch at the back. It doesn’t serve any purpose, but perhaps only to remind you how much you might love this bag.

Chain bags tend to be problematic for wearers. People with long hair can get snagged into the chain links, so can men with beards. I personally prefer leather straps but a chain sling can be okay if you watch yourself a little bit around it. Thankfully, the GG Marmont slings are purely chain links. There’s a leather part that can rest nicely on your shoulder so that the metal doesn’t dig into your bones.

It’s a wonderfully sized bag that allows you to carry enough of your things for the entire day. And somehow, it doesn’t look off putting should you find yourself out on a nice evening when you’ve been lugging this bag around all day.

Grab one. You deserve it.
