Haute couture has entered the most unlikely territory – trash bags.
Balenciaga sells backpacks inspired by the look of garbage bags for a shocking £1,470 or 1,790 dokars, writes the Daily Mail.
The backpacks are sold in four different colors including black, white, blue and yellow. Twitter users wonder if the brand is running a social experiment or just trolling the masses.
On its official website, Balenciaga reveals, “The Garbage Backpack is inspired by a garbage bag.”
Multiple reports suggest that the Balenciaga Trash Pouch is made from calfskin leather with a glossy coating.
It comes in various colours including all-black, white-and-red, yellow-and-black and blue-and-black.
The Balenciaga bags have drawstrings, which can be pulled to close them before the ties are fixed. When carried, they certainly look like the sacks in which people discard what they don’t want to keep.
Speaking about the item, Gvasalia previously told WWD, “I couldn’t miss an opportunity to make the most expensive trash bag in the world, because who doesn’t love a fashion scandal?”
