7 Reasons We Love the Gucci Marmont

Today’s topic involves something that’s been on our minds a lot – Gucci. It’s no secret that we at PurseBop are fascinated by the direction that creative director Alessandro Michele has taken the brand (Read: What Were the Top Luxury Brands of Q2?, Gucci Embraces E-Commerce in China, Gucci Bulletin Board). In addition, we recently took a closer look at some of Gucci’s handbags to examine what makes them so appealing (Read: Gucci Handbag Showdown: Dionysus vs. Marmont). Today, we will delve even further by looking at one handbag – the retro and lush Gucci Marmont – and the attributes that most attract us—its devoted admirers.

Particularly in its rich velvet option, the Gucci Marmont oozes 70s glamour: think bell bottoms, giant platform boots, gold hoops and big sunglasses. Even the GG buckle harkens back to the birth of the fashion house’s logo in the 70s. This look is in and there’s no better bag to bring some grooviness to your outfit.

2. Masculin Féminin

The Marmont is a perfect balance of feminine and masculine with it’s slightly slouched silhouette and hard metallics,. Whether paired with an elegant dress and heels or boyfriend jeans and a blazer, the Marmont works.

3. Loved By Our Favorite Celebrities

Taking its name from the famous west coast celebrity hangout The Chateau Marmont, it’s no surprise that some of the biggest stars in Hollywood choose the Marmont to carry lipstick, wallet and audition notes.

4. Size Options

With three different size options to choose from, the Marmont offers itself to your every need: a mini for nights on the town, a shoulder bag for important lunch meetings and a tote for daily activities.

5. A Special Detail on the Back

And the Gucci Marmont leather tote has a sweet little surprise for its owner:  an embroidered heart on the back. Though it doesn’t face outward and therefore isn’t visible to the outside world, this small detail adds a sense of uniqueness, whimsy and artisanship to the bag.

6. Unique Variations
