Balenciaga is selling this trash bag for $1,800
· Aug 6, 2022 ·

You might have often speculated that people will buy just about anything if a fancy designer makes it and slaps a very high price tag on it.

Case in point: Literal trash bags for $1,800:

Balenciaga is raising eyebrows — and getting trashed — over its "Trash Pouch," a baffling design "inspired by a garbage bag" with an even more outrageous price tag: a hefty $1,790.

The luxury fashion house's shiny drawstring bag — which is made out of calfskin leather, emblazoned with a subtle logo and comes in the basic Hefty bag black along with the solid Glad-esque white as well as yellow and blue — is making its way to stores after debuting in the Fall 2022 ready-to-wear collection in Paris last March.

Just think: With this thing slung over your shoulder, you can rock the same look as countless avant garde trash-taker-outers. Like legendary 90s icon Wayne Szalinski:

So dazzling! Or fashion trend-setter Hans Klopek:

Timeless! Or Andy's mom from Toy Story 3:

Slay, queen!

Anyway yeah if you got a mortgage payment to drop then go ahead and buy this thing. Or you could get 25 of them for $5.15 at the local Piggly-Wiggly. Either one.
