Who said taking out the trash wasn’t trendy? Certainly not the luxury brand Balenciaga. Since the brand’s new collection arrived in stores and on its website at the beginning of August, the reactions have been going well. In question ? The design of their new handbag inspired by our very dear everyday trash bag.

Same shape, and same sliding closure, only the price is not the same. The luxury “trash can” is sold at a price of 1700 euros.

Controversial

On social networks, design does not pass. The bag called on the site the “Trash bag” caused a lot of negative comments. “If you don’t see the beauty of the Balenciaga trash bag, you don’t understand fashion. It only costs 1790 dollars,” ironically wrote a surfer on Twitter. On Instagram, it is possible to read:”Whoever buys this should be thrown in,” “They’re really trying to make fun of consumers at this point.”

A marketing stunt?

The artistic director of Balenciaga, Demna Gvasalia, is in any case in heaven: “I really couldn’t miss the opportunity to design the most expensive trash bag in the world. Who doesn’t love fashion scandals?, he said in March 2022 during the parade in which the article was introduced. This is not the first time he has tried his hand at controversy. His reproduction of the IKEA shopping bag, and his already worn sneakers are good examples.
