The local weather might not put us in quite the same mood, but if fashion and beauty seasons are to be followed, it seems like we’re right in the heat of summer sunshine — so go on, be charmed breathless by the new arrivals that await. We’re, of course, talking about Gucci’s range of GG Marmont bags, part of the Towards The Sun Pre-Fall 2020 collection, that sees the iconic matelassé leather now shimmering in soft, pastel hues.
With a palette of cotton candy shades, we’re assuring you that they’re not all fluff. A sight to behold, yes, but the signature Gucci handbags of matelassé leather and a chevron design are still thoughtfully constructed, with a soft yet structured silhouette, chain shoulder strap with a leather shoulder rest for comfort, along with that instant symbol of the double Gs. They’re meant to go perfect with the fashion house’s warm weather ready-to-wear items too, including sandals, hats, and kaftans.
Fun fact: you’ll be able to find Singaporean model Layla Ong on the Gucci international website as well!
There are a couple of models available for the GG Marmont bags — though we’re seeing mostly shoulder bags in small, mini, and super mini sizes, all featuring a simple clasp closure. You may also opt for the Mini Top Handle Bag — which can be slung, carried, or worn across the body — or the slimmer Mini Bag with a vertical design. Some bags are already selling fast and may soon be unlisted from the website, though you should still be able to find them in Gucci boutiques.
Pair these joyful pieces with a casual logo t-shirt for some unserious fun, or go for similar light pastel hues to play up that breezy vibe. Either way, these sweet candy tones deserve to be worn out and about, and we absolutely see why.
Here are all the styles available on the Gucci website:
