Balenciaga is sure having fun this year. Fresh off the, er, success of its $2,145 fake IKEA tote bag, the fashion house has decided to peddle a fancy version of its own shopping bag. Except instead of paper, this bag made of calfskin and metal. And instead of “free with purchase so you can put your items in it,” it’s $1,100.
Seems incredibly reasonable!
Here are a few reasons why someone might want to purchase a calfskin version of a paper bag. The first reason: You are very rich and want to post what you have done online. The second: You have misread the price and believe this bag to be $11.
I can’t think of anything else. Luckily, I don’t have to, because this bag is already sold out. I assume the man below purchased all of them.
Fashion: It’s good!
