Facing a violently changing world, today’s executives will soon have to deal with challenges that were non-existent seven months ago. In a word, we now live in a culture of extremes.

For Spring-Summer 2020, Maison Margiela releases the Snatched bag to stores worldwide. The genderless handbag comes in two multi-functional sizes and was named by creative director John Galliano in homage to the slang of a defiant new generation epitomized by individuality and diversity. In contemporary lingo, looking snatched is the ultimate accolade: an outfit impeccably styled. Reflected in its design, the Snatched carries double meaning. With its sharp folded edges, flap closure and clutch-able handle, the bag hints at the British understanding of snatched: the swift grasp of an object, a gesture entrenched in the notion of dressing in haste key to the vocabulary developed in the Artisanal ateliers of Maison Margiela. Imbued with the codes of its homonym name, the bag takes the shape of a pochette. The large bag doubles as a clutch and shoulder bag, while the small bag serves as a clutch, shoulder or belt bag. With its asymmetric angles, the Snatched hints at the glamour of classic evening bags, while its foldable flap conjures memories of origami paper bags. (Full press release attached)
