What makes the Gucci GG Marmont so special?
Gucci is one of the most prestigious Italian fashion houses and has recently experienced a huge international upswing which can be attributed to Alessandro Michele who has been appointed Creative Director in January 2015. The Gucci GG Marmont reflects Alessandro Michele’s eclectic sense of aesthetics perfectly and combines the distinctive GG buckle, which has been the iconic feature of the luxury house since the 1970s, and modern elements such as vivid color combinations and eloborate embroidery. The Gucci GG Marmont comes in a variety of different styles and materials, from finest calf leather to plush velvet and exotic crocodile leather.
With its unique combination of traditional Gucci elements and modern accents, the Gucci GG Marmont is not only a must-have accessory but also a timeless classic. In addition to its design, the Gucci GG Marmont also proves functionality with hidden magnetic or zip closures as well as small inner pockets for everyday essentials such as a key, mobile phone and purse. The shoulder strap is made of a brass chain and leather and guarantees longevity and comfort at all times.
