Balenciaga Is Selling A $1,100 Shopping Bag Because, Why Not?


We thought we had enough WTF moments this month, but we were wrong. Balenciaga has decided to launch a $1,00 “shopping bag,” which is a twin to the free bag you get after buying something from Balenciaga. Yes, you read that right – and we haven’t even gotten to the craziest part of this story yet.

The white “purse” has the famous name stamped across it, and has black Nappa leather handles and silver hardware.

So why would anyone be crazy enough to purchase this piece? Apparently, Balenciago made this one with calfskin instead of paper. Take a look at the two different bags below.

But this story gets even crazier! The purse has already sold out! Literally, we can’t even right now.

No word on yet if it’s going to restock, but what we do know is that if you want a replica, all you really need to do is find the designer brand paper bag.
