Maison Margiela’s Glam Slam Anthology pays tribute to the Maison’s gender-neutral signature bag. This distinct bag features a soft cloud-like shape with quilted, rounded curves, and was first seen on the Paris runway in 2018, introduced by Creative Director John Galliano. The Anthology is a capsule collection of seven hand-picked styles, each made with materials that best reflect Galliano’s concept of unconscious glamour. The collection includes Glam Slam bags in various sizes and styles, crafted from fabrics specific to a particular season, such as silver crackle leather from Spring-Summer 2020, paper leather from Autumn-Winter 2020, trench fabric leather from Spring-Summer 2021, and pony-style leather from Autumn-Winter 2018. Furthermore, each bag is adorned with a unique personalized label.
