Ten Loves: Maison Margiela Grand Slam Bag
People often say fashion over function. Which we agree with- if it doesn’t hurt or isn’t uncomfortable to wear, you probably aren’t looking good. But as a house, Maison Margiela are known for flipping the rules on their head, and here they have done it again. The Grand Slam is VERY fashion but also extremely functional. You’ve seen this bag being trotted around all the fashion weeks on the arms of all the coolest guys and gals. Yes, it’s the one that looks like a pillow. That is where fashion comes in with the function. We know fashion is tiring, you have early call times and long days, get on and off planes, trains and automobiles- it’s exhausting being so fabulous and well dressed. That is why this bag solves almost all your problems (ok, so wrinkles it won’t save, but that’s what Botox is for babes). Not only is it shaped like a pillow it’s stuffed like one too, its plush and perfect. The first time I held one in my hands I let out a slightly inappropriate groan and said: “Ooooh god this is lush”. Never again will you be hurting your neck trying to catch up on sleep, simply place the Grand Slam in your desired sleeping position and viola- comfy lil nap before your next grand engagement. Not only does it serve as a handy pillow, it’s actually a really great sized bag to hold all your essentials. But because we don’t wanna get too practical, obviously our favourite Grand Slam is the holographic one, because flashy look-at-me is something we here at Ten Towers love.
