I have been after a black cross body bag for a while now. I was torn between the YSL blogger, the Gucci Soho Disco and this one, the Gucci Marmont Mini.
I decided on the Gucci Marmont. It comes nine different colours but I wanted black. I know black is a bit safe and boring but I knew it would go with everything and I could get lots of use out of it.
I ordered this direct from Gucci online. Its shipped from Italy and took 4 days to arrive to me in the UK from date of order. Shipping is free.
As you would expect from Gucci, the packaging is stunning. The bag comes in a magnetic box and is in a dust bag and is wrapped in tissue paper. It also comes with a thank you card and care pack etc.
The bag is fairly small but I would say bigger than the YSL blogger and a bit smaller than the Soho Disco. You can still fit plenty in though. Card holder, phone, makeup, keys etc all fit nicely with room to spare.
The bag can be worn as a shoulder or cross body. The strap does not detach but you could tuck it inside to use as a clutch. I will only wear this cross body.
The leather is buttery soft and so it’s very comfortable to use and wear. The hardware is antique gold so it’s a kind of distressed gold.
Inside there is a beige lining that feels a bit like moleskin. There is the main compartment then a little pocket to the side which my phone (iPhone 6s) fits nicely into.
If I had to find something to criticise, I would have preferred the strap to be adjustable as I am quite tall so would have prefered the bag to sit slightly lower on my hip than it does.
I am extremely happy with this bag. I have had it for a few weeks now and I have already worn it lots of times. Its beautiful and very functional.
I would love to hear from anyone who has this bag, and what your thoughts are so please comment below.
Thanks for reading
