Whenever I achieve an important milestone, I treat myself to a nice bag. Two years ago, when I landed a new job I decided to go for the Medium Trunk Bag by Marni, after being inspired by Angelica Barwich.
All about the Marni Trunk Bag
The Marni Trunk Bag comes in different types of leather, but I went for a smooth calfskin leather (similar to my RSVP Clutch Bag), which means that I’m living my life in fear of scratching it.
Despite its delicacy, the bag itself is sturdy and well-structured and I am pleased to report that after two years of use, it’s still in impeccable conditions, without even a single scratch. To me, this impressive durability speaks volumes about the bag’s quality craftsmanship!
Inside, instead, the lining is a blend of 65% polyester and 35% cotton.
Pockets and straps
I’ve got the medium size, which has got 5 internal compartments with gold details, one of which is a handy zipped pocket.
As for the shoulder strap, I prefer keeping it short and wearing the bag crossbody. Nevertheless, it’s possible to adjust the strap length and even use an extension if needed.
The medium-sized bag measures as follows:
- Height: 16 cm
- Width: 16 cm
- Lenght: 23 cm
Where are Marni bags made? How much do they cost?
Marni Trunk bags are crafted in Italy and are priced around 1750€.
Of course they’re pricey, but whether they’re paired with casual attire or dressed up for formal occasions, their timeless elegance adds a touch of refinement to every look!
Is an everyday bag?
Not really! While I find it comfortable to carry, it’s not ideal for frequent opening and closing. Additionally, despite the five compartments, filling each of them to capacity may prevent the clasp from closing properly.
Honestly, I don’t have this issue because I’m a minimalist, so I usually carry only the essentials with me (a small Marni wallet, home keys, tissues, gummies, and hand sanitizer) and they fit perfectly.
Is Marni Trunk Bag worth it?
Yes, it definitely is.
The Marni Trunk Bag has proven to be a timeless and valuable choice, showing its versatility, durability, and elegance. As I continue my style journey, this bag keeps reflecting both my personal style and the innovative spirit of Marni.
