Just two months after releasing its now-infamous “IKEA-inspired” tote bag that cost $2,145, Balenciaga’s Demna Gvasalia is back to troll us with a shopping bag that costs $1,100.
The made-in-Italy bag swaps the usual paper and cardboard mix found in shopping bags for an off-white calfskin body, black nappa leather handles, silver hardwear, a double-zip fastening, and a handy interior pocket. The exterior is finished with Balenciaga’s logo.
If you were looking to cop, however, you’re out of luck. The bag is being released as part of Balenciaga’s Colette takeover and the retailer has already sold out of the shoppers. Don’t worry though, if you really need a $1,100 bag in your life, you can sign up to get notified when the restock comes in.
