Bag Review – Gucci Super Mini GG Marmont bag

Before I start this review, I have to share that this is my most exciting blog post EVER, because it’s in partnership with GUCCI (!!!) I’m collaborating with them to feature a bag from their Spring collection – and here’s the one I picked out – the Blue Leather Gucci GG Marmont Super Mini bag.

I’ve always been drawn to teeny bags (I recently shared some here), and I love Gucci Super Mini bags because they make such a statement!

COMPARING THE GUCCI DIONYSUS GG SUPER MINI BAG AND GG MARMONT SUPER MINI BAG

When picking out a bag for this collaboration, I was deciding between the Dionysus GG Super Mini Bag and the GG Marmont Super Mini Bag. While their dimensions appear comparable online, I’m glad I got the chance to try them on in store, because there’s a significant difference in what fits inside each bag.

GUCCI DIONYSUS SUPER MINI BAG DIMENSIONS: 6.5″W x 3.9″H x 1.5″D

GUCCI GG MARMONT SUPER MINI BAG DIMENSIONS: 6.2″W x 4″H x 1.7″D

The Dionysus is made of a rigid fabric, while the Marmont is soft and stretchy. I can fit both my cardholder and iPhone XS in the Marmont Super Mini, while neither item fit into the Dionysus. So if you pick the Dionysus Super Mini, you would probably want to remove some cash/cards from your wallet and carry it loose in the bag along with your keys/makeup.

WHAT FITS INSIDE THE GG MARMONT SUPER MINI BAG

Here’s what I carry in my Gucci GG Marmont Super Mini bag. My large iPhone + popsocket fits in comfortably (I have an iPhone XS Max – but used my iPhone 7 Plus for these pics – they’re both around 6.2 inches x 3.05 inches). There’s also enough space for my cardholder wallet plus a lipbalm.

HOW TO STYLE THE GG MARMONT SUPER MINI BAG

5 ways to wear a Gucci GG Marmont Super Mini bag in blue leather how to style

I’ve shown 5 ways to style the Super Mini bag – but there are SO many more options! The chain placement along with the built-in keyholder clasp means that you can arrange it in numerous different ways.

  • Long – I’ve left the chain as is
  • Shoulder – I crossed the chain inside and then wrapped it around the flap
  • Top handle – I wrapped the chain around the flap 3 times
  • Clutch – I removed the chain completely (easy to do as the chain is secured using a hoop and stick fastening)
  • Belt – I pulled the chain to one side and clipped it around my waist using the keyholder clasp.

I’ll be sharing a reel demonstrating these techniques soon!

COMPARING THE GG MARMONT SUPER MINI BAG WITH THE MARMONT MINI, SMALL AND MEDIUM

It’s hard to decide which size Gucci GG Marmont Shoulder bag to pick – click here to read my earlier post on this. There are pros and cons of each size. I personally own the Mini and the Super Mini…and I would also love the Small size too!

These are the dimensions of each bag:

GUCCI GG MARMONT SUPER MINI BAG DIMENSIONS: 6.2″W x 4″H x 1.7″D

GUCCI GG MARMONT MINI BAG DIMENSIONS: 8.5″W x 5″H x 2.5″D

GUCCI GG MARMONT SMALL BAG DIMENSIONS: 10″W x 6″H x 3″D

GUCCI GG MARMONT MEDIUM BAG DIMENSIONS: 12″W x 7.5″H x 3″D

I find that my Mini is large enough to carry my every day items, while the Super Mini is only big enough for the essentials, or for use as an evening bag. When it comes to pricing, the Super Mini is $1k less than the Mini – so you get the full designer look at a much lower price point.

    Ahh I almost purchased this super mini in the white chevron leather but ultimately decided against it. It is stunning in blue though!
