Gucci GG Marmont Bags are All Over Instagram

Other Brands

It’s no secret that Gucci is having a major moment lately. From celebs, models and it-girls to your everyday bag lover, the brand’s bags are some of the hottest you can carry right now. I myself am seriously crushing on all things Gucci, too. My love affair with the brand began innocently enough–once partial to other luxury brands, my world changed one ordinary afternoon a year and a half ago. I was out and about shopping–ok, window-shopping. I had zero plans to purchase anything that day, let alone a high-ticket item. Usually, I meticulously research and plan every pricey bag purchase, yet that day something very odd happened to me. I walked on into a Gucci store, fell in love, and walked out with a Soho Disco Chain Bag.

From then on, Gucci was seriously on my radar. Lately, its bags are consistently swoon-worthy, but there is one collection in particular that has really stolen my heart. Let’s all stop, take a minute, and pray to the handbag Gods for giving us The Gucci GG Marmont Handbag Collection. #ThankYou #Blessed

While I am 100% positive that my next big bag buy will be from this collection, I’m still unsure on the exact style and size that I want. As usual, I took to our Instagram feed for a little bagspo. And just like we are, Instagram, too, is hot for Gucci.

Gucci: Gucci DIY At ION ORCHARD

Other Brands

IMAGE: GUCCI

Step into Gucci’s spanking new store at ION Orchard and you’ll be slightly overwhelmed, especially with 6000 sq ft of Gooch goodness to explore. Also the first Gucci store in Singapore to follow the new codes of the Italian luxury house, its interiors are a mix of contemporary luxury and industrial eclecticism that uses idiosyncratic materials as imagined by Creative Director Alessandro Michele.

And after you’re done exploring dedicated sections for men and women consisting of everything from leather goods and shoes to accessories and even a rather full line-up of RTW, make a pitstop at Gucci DIY, another first for Singapore where you can ‘customise’ certain styles of bags (and shoes) to make it truly one-of-a-kind.

IMAGES: GUCCI

Choose from a pre-decided selection of bags and its accompanying patchwork pieces, which range from the now-iconic coral snakes that come in 3 colours to a vast array of creatures great and small, from bees and dragonflies to lizards and tigers. Then there are the flowers: peonies, roses, even a lotus, each more beautiful than the last. For plain models, you can opt for exotic skins like crocodile and python, to regular leather that comes in 18 different shades. You can choose the lining, you can decide if you want the interior personalised with your initials, even the shoulder straps come in special colour combinations that can only be found in Gucci DIY’s line-up.

You can also customise footwear, with one being able to add initials onto Ace sneakers, for example. Eventually, both RTW collections for both men and women will be opened up customisation but till that day comes, anyone needs a special Dionysus to call her own? Head on down to Gucci ION Orchard now.

Gucci of the Past and Present

Other Brands

A few years ago, then Creative Director of Gucci, Frida Giannini, designed the Jackie Soft shoulder bag which first came out in pink, mustard, and sky blue. I loved the pink version, although it was not a bag that I carried often because I worry about getting it dirty. But each time I take the bag out, I remember how much I love the style. It is a flap satchel secured by the Gucci signature piston lock. Inside, there are a few compartments which come in handy especially if you’re like me– a pack rat

Shirt: H&M // Skirt: MSGM // Bag: Gucci // Shoes: Giambattista Valli

 

The Jackie Soft has since undergone a few evolutions, with the straps becoming detachable so that you can also carry the bag as a clutch. Sadly during my last visit to Gucci, I no longer saw the bag. I was hoping to buy a black version of it (I know, I am becoming a black bag kinda lady). In the bag’s place were mostly the latest offerings of Alessandro Michele, the brand’s new (well it has been a few seasons now) Creative Director.

The Dionysus, which was carried by almost every other fashionista on instagram and during fashion weeks:

To be honest, this bag has not yet won me over to the point of my wanting to go into a boutique and buying one (and hah, it’s quite pricey too for a non- leather bag at £2,270). Also because I found the bag too big. But there is a bag that I’ve been liking, although it doesn’t have that same compartment configuration as the my old Jackie Soft satchel. The Gucci Padlock GG Supreme Tian Bag in the smaller size (priced at £925) is really so pretty in person.

According to Gucci, this Tian print canvas is patterned after a contemporary floral motif that was inspired by Chinese landscapes printed on  18th century tapestries and screens. Problem is, the bag is just a tad too heavy with the chain strap, which is not detachable. But *sigh*, the bag is real pretty though.

I’m still holding out on something special for the 2nd half of this year. Could the bag come from Gucci? Let’s see

New Gucci Replica Bags: Best Designs And Common Flaws You Should Avoid

Gucci

But as it happens with fake bags online in general, you need to be extra careful especially since these are new models and you probably haven’t really got the chance to study them thoroughly. This is why I decided to select some of the Gucci replica bags I’ve found online and point out the flaws you should avoid in these new Gucci styles.

I recently posted this picture on my Facebook profile and asked my friends if they liked or disliked the bag. This is the kind of bag you either love or you hate. Some loved it because it’s so unique and extravagant, others thought it was too flashy or too trendy. But no matter on which side you are on, you have to admit this bag takes a lot of work to make and is very difficult to copy. So if you really want a replica of this bag, then don’t expect it to be 100% like the real deal.

Even though I love most of their new designs, I’m not a fan of all these new Gucci bags. And I’m talking about some of the Gucci Dionysus bags in particular. Take this one with the big embroidered queen bee for example. I just don’t get it, it’s not visually appealing and I would never buy it. But even so, I get that it’s one of those unique-looking Gucci replica bags that some would actually enjoy wearing.

It’s important to keep in mind that most of the Gucci Dionysus Fall 2015 and Gucci spring/summer 2016 bags are very detailed, which makes it pretty difficult to find the perfect Gucci replica bags. Sequins, embroidery, beads, crocodile leather, suede, funky prints, they’ve covered everything! So you need to pay close attention to all these details if you want to find a great replica.

It seems that the Gucci Arabesque canvas was particularly tricky for replica makers. The details are beautiful and they show great craftsmanship. This is why it’s also really difficult to copy and get right, which explains why many of the Gucci replica handbags you’ll find online are not good.

As you can see, in the authentic Gucci, the Arabesque print is made of leather that is beautifully cut and sewn onto the GG supreme canvas, not printed on it, not glued!

And here’s an example of a fake Gucci bag with the Arabesque print done wrong:

But this is just an example, you will find Gucci replica bags like this on many replica sites, even the best ones.

Extra tip: the authentic Gucci Padlock bags were not made in this Arabesque print, just replicas.

Or look at this other replica Gucci Dionysus bag. Can you tell what’s wrong? Well, the original was made with suede trims in different colors but never in this particular one.

I’ve also noticed that not even the best replica sites got the Gucci replica bags in the Tian print right so far. So I would suggest to give them a bit more time if you don’t want to carry an obvious fake.

But I absolutely love the way they reintroduced the classic web detail or bamboo handle in such a modern manner!

I have to say that I really love some of these new designer replica handbags Gucci has released in the past few months. And I absolutely love how they reinvented the canvas and reintroduced the classic web detail and bamboo handle! Sure, a classic like the fake Gucci duffle bag will never get old but it was about time they came up with some new classics!

Just be careful, cheap is sometimes too cheap. This fake Gucci duffle bag for example is really bad. Everything from the canvas to the lining or tags is wrong. You really don’t want your fake Gucci travel bag to look this way.

Still, if you’re looking for cheap Gucci luggage, just let me know and I’ll point out some good replica sites with good prices and good quality.

If you are trying to check the Gucci authenticity, you can start your research with the official Gucci site. They have big images that will prove very helpful in the process. Take this Gucci Signature Padlock shoulder bag for example. Once you compare these photos of the replica with the photos of the authentic, you’ll easily notice the differences. Maybe it’s not just as easy with Gucci replica bags, but it still helps.
