Balenciaga’s R29k garbage bag-inspired Trash Pouch gets ‘trashed’ online

Fashion is continuously evolving – these days in the most bizarre direction. Designers have gone from making bespoke fashion pieces to making items that the average Joe just cannot fathom wearing. Balenciaga is one of the luxury brands that keep shocking people with their out-there fashion pieces which are becoming more bizarre by the day.

Their latest contribution to the fashion world is their Trash Pouch – a $1750 (R29k) handbag inspired by an actual garbage bag.

Balenciaga R29k trash bag-inspired purse leaves netizens SHOOK

Balenciaga may just be taking their hobo chic vision a little too far – or at least that’s what many people think.

The luxury clothing brand just unveiled its latest contribution to the fashion world and it really is something else.

The Trash Pouch – which was inspired by a literal black trash bag – is a 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.

The bag is finally ready to hit the stores after debuting in the Fall 2022 ready-to-wear collection in Paris last March.

The bag has left many people wondering exactly what had become of fashion but this is exactly the reaction Balenciaga was looking for, says Balenciaga’s creative director Demna Gvasalia.

Speaking to Women’s Wear Daily, she explained that the bag is quite a fashion scandal – and she loves it.

“I couldn’t miss an opportunity to make the most expensive trash bag in the world, because who doesn’t love a fashion scandal?”

“They really trying to make a joke out of the consumers at this point,” chimed in another.
