Ultimate Bag Guide: Gucci Marmont
Gucci Marmont’s were first released in the 2016 Fall/Winter Ready to Wear Collection. Despite only being a recent addition to Gucci’s vast handbag designs, Marmont’s have secured their spot in the Gucci Hall of Fame.
Predominantly crafted in zig-zag quilted leather, they offer a striking contrast to the classic Guccissima Supreme canvas, that adorns many Gucci handbags.

The classic Gucci Marmont is crafted of matelassé chevron leather and features the new ‘GG’ logo in antique brass hardware.
The new ‘GG’ logo was originally released on the Marmont belt in 2015; a year before the new creative director, Alessandro Michele, launched the Marmont handbag collection in 2016. Michele was inspired by a buckle the fashion house created back in the 1970s, choosing to reposition the G’s so they both faced the same way and overlapped.
The unique nature of Gucci Marmont bags being trans-seasonal, secures their position within many women’s wardrobes. Gucci tease vintage with contemporary to drop must-have essentials that will continue to adorn the arms of many for years to come.

MATERIALS & COLOURS:
Popular Gucci Marmont bags are crafted in the following:
- Chevron Zigzag quilting
- Grained leather
- Diagonal quilting
Predominantly, Marmont’s are crafted in zig-zag quilted leather, but Gucci also utilise a thicker grained leather for more simplistic styles. Furthermore, Gucci recognise the demand for unique designs and consistently re-design the Marmont in a range of colours, fabrics and leather types; which is your favourite?
Since the Gucci Marmont was launched in 2016, the hardware for the interlocking GG was always minimalist.
Recently, the fashion house paid homage to their playful nature and released designs which host pearl embellishments and textured GG’s.
In 2020, Gucci released a gun metal version of the classic Marmont, a sharp contrast to the thick brushed gold hardware that had been on Marmont’s since their conception in 2016.
