Because you’re on a multi-city travel itinerary, looking like a shabby backpacker simply won’t do (sorry). For years, Maison Margiela has equipped the globetrotting fashion savvy with a secret weapon perfect to catch some Z’s with on the fly. It’s called the Glam Slam, a travel-friendly pillow bag that has been all the rage with street style purveyors for years. This quilted version, which looks to have taken its inspo from the Chesterfield sofa, is as huggable as its shape suggests. Made of smooth leather, it features soft curves and available in sizes that encourage its alternate use as a head cushion. Now, Maison Margiela is doubling down on the bag’s cult status by launching a new silhouette, a hobo version that is as easy to carry around on your travels as a neck pillow. This slings comfortably under the arm too like resting on a gel pad. As for what to store in this fluffy carrier? Anything from your travel documents to some eye cream. You can thank us later for this travel tip.
