Balenciaga and Vetements designer Demna Gvasalia is at it again. And by “it,” we mean dropping an expensive remake of a shopping bag.
As part of their takeover of the retailer Colette, Balenciaga released a special edition shopping bag for $1100. But unlike a normal paper shopper, this one is made in Italy, finished in calfskin, leather and silver and features a double zip fastening. So really, nothing like a regular shopping bag except in aesthetics.
Balenciaga is taking over Colette through August 5, so a restock seems likely. But don’t fret — the Bernie Sanders-inspired jackets, lighters, and booties are still in stock.
