The Marmont Tote
The famous interlocking Gs – a symbol that has been setting our hearts aflutter for years and one that is firmly back on our fashion radars with the introduction of Gucci’s new creative director. Gucci is a label that is instantly recognisable for its polished yet slightly sexy clothing, and the same is true of its accessories. The Marmont tote typifies the kind of slick, understated elegance the brand has come to be known for; a timeless piece you will love for a lifetime. This season, Gucci continues to impress with modern twists on classic designs – ever present in our wardrobes.

Alessandro Michele is the creative director at Gucci and the man bringing a new vision to the legendary fashion house. Italian through and through, he studied at the prestigious Accademia di Costume e di Moda in Rome before cutting his teeth at Fendi and going on to work with Tom Ford at Gucci in 2002. Now, 14 years on, Michele continues to drive the brand forward with his idiosyncratic sense of style and innovative take on classic designs.
