GUCCI introduces the new GG Marmont handbag
July 20, 2016: The GG Marmont is a design inspired by a buckle that was used by Gucci in the Seventies. In this new version of the GG Marmont the GG motif appears as the main ornament.
These models of GG Marmont range from shoulder bags in three sizes to tote bags and camera cases. All come with brass chain shoulder straps featuring a leather detail. Materials used are calf leather, velvet and crocodile. There is quilting on the calf leather styles – either in a chevron or a cubic design, the latter with the addition of studs. Chevron quilting is also a feature on some of the velvet styles. The colour palette includes a multitude of hues such as black, mystic white, hibiscus red, pink intense, yellow, fuchsia, peacock and dark emerald. There are also models using a combination of colours, notably black and mystic white. Linings are in beige-coloured microfiber for the leather models, beige nappa leather for the crocodile models and peony-coloured silk for the velvet models.
The metallic elements –the GG motif itself – are in antiqued gold, and there is a ‘quilted’ heart detail or GG design on the backs of some of the chevron-quilted bags. For the shoulder bags the closure is a pin closure with a side button, while the totes have a hidden magnetic closure and the camera bags a zip closure with featured zippered or open pockets inside.
