In the fashion world, Balenciaga dares to stand out. But not necessarily always in the right way. The label, whose headquarters are now in France, has become accustomed to bringing controversial models to market. A few months ago, the brand unveiled a handbag resembling a plastic shopping bag for 990 euros, but also sneakers that looked extremely worn for 1,750 euros.

Today, Balenciaga tries a new coup by selling a controversial handbag. Controversial because it looks like a garbage bag. Fashion designer and creative director Demna Gvasalia doesn’t hide it: “I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to make the most expensive trash bag in the world,” he joked in an interview. granted to the fashion magazine “Women’s Wear Daily”.

Although the handbag looks like a plastic garbage bag, it is made of soft calfskin. The bag will be sold online and in stores, and is available in four colors: black, blue, yellow and white. The Balenciaga logo is subtly printed on the front. His price? 1,790 dollars, or about 1,750 euros.

The announcement of such a bag did not have to wait long before being mocked by social networks. Some see it as a touch of humor from the brand, others are more pungent. “Designer fashion has become a big joke. What kind of world do we live in?”, wrote a user on Twitter. “If you have enough money to buy Balenciaga’s ‘garbage bag’, you might as well fill it up and donate it to charity,” someone else firmly declares.
