Just when you thought Balenciaga didn't have any more wild drops up its XXL sleeves, the Parisian house said, "but, wait, there's more."

With autumn just around the corner, Balenciaga has begun rolling out its collection for the season.

In addition to more skin-tight Knife boots and popular Le Cagole bags, the Demna-led brand also dropped its unhinged denim pants-top.

At first, Balenciaga's jeans-top looks like an average distressed denim skirt. Then I remembered: normalcy isn't in Balenciaga's dictionary.

On the side, it seems like Balenciaga's denim pants-top bears risqué cutouts. Until I discovered that those slashes were actually armholes.

Priced at $1,590 (plus a $795 down payment), Balenciaga's jeanstop also comes with customary back pockets and a brown branded leather patch. It even has a functioning fly for, erm, V-neck sensibility, I'm guessing.

Balenciaga's jeans-top — available for pre-order at Moda Operandi's website — emulates the vibe of a new Julia Fox DIY hack for a morning-after look.

Why borrow clothes from a fling when last night's denim skirt can turn the walk-of-shame into a runway? That surely sounds like something the Highsnobiety-deemed adult crafter would say.

Balenciaga's denim pants-top debuted during the brand's Fall/Winter 2022 presentation, where models struggle-strutted in the chaotic top and ultra-baggy jeans through a Demna-made snow storm.

Fast forward to May, there goes the pants-top again, this time worn by Alexa Demie at the house's SS23 show at the New York Stock Exchange.

Known to churn out noteworthy looks,Euphoria star made the unusual top actually look...fly. No surprises there.

After all, Demie plays a stylish character on the hit HBO series alongside castmates who are also equally well-dressed IRL.

She was bound to turn the piece into an iconic moment.

Balenciaga, you certainly have another wild product on your hands with the launch of the denim pants-top.

Indeed, people may think Balenciaga's latest drop is trash like its others. Well, wait until they feast their eyes on its literal $1,790 garbage.
