Internet startled at $1790 Balenciaga trash pouch

The Balenciaga Trash Pouch is a new fad that has sparked conflicting responses throughout the internet. The Parisian luxury brand, which frequently makes headlines for its unconventional and experimental fashion pieces, returned to the scene with the Trash Pouch bag, which was initially displayed during the fashion label’s Fall/Winter 2022 runway show.

Fans of the high-fashion label Balenciaga have been critical of Demna Gvasalia, the brand’s creative director, for introducing a garbage bag-inspired bag with an outrageous $1,790 price tag.

One internet user mocked modern haute fashion and dismissed it as a hoax, saying:

High fashion is a joke at this point. Balenciaga made a “trash bag” pouch going for $1790. Is this world real ? 🤦🏾‍♂️

The Balenciaga Trash Pouch bag is currently available for purchase from the fashion label’s e-commerce website. It is being offered in four colorways, blue, black, white, and yellow, with a price tag of $1,790.

I really need designer company’s to stop making dumb products and selling them for shit tons of money cause wtf do you mean balenciaga is selling an $1800 trash bag

I love Balenciagas concept of making post ironic fashion by basically trolling rich people, but then it immediately disgusts me when it works and I see rich people actually buy the $1790 trash bag… capitalism is painful…

While some internet users praised Balenciaga for their brilliant marketing, others seemed to be much less impressed. However, a lot of people continued to deride high fashion as a joke and make fun of the Trash Pouch concept.

Balenciaga is a true social experiment to actually see who’s dumb enough to buy stuff. They are selling a trash bag for $1,790. Somebody is going to tell me it’s art.

People filled the comments section of the post about the bag, which Hypebeast had put out. Some thought it was silly, while others wondered if someone would genuinely purchase it as a high-fashion accessory.

Someone else even wrote that now rich people are cosplaying as poor people. One of them claimed it was a metaphor for consumers.

Balenciaga is selling the most expensive trash bag in the world’ for $1,790 made out of calfskin leather

In fact, the designer has literally done that with this opulent accessory, which is based on a temporary trash bag but is made of luxurious calfskin leather instead.

However, Balenciaga’s adaptation is undoubtedly the most confusing to date. There are four colorways available for this bag: black, white and red, blue and black, or yellow and black. Calfskin is used throughout, including the drawstrings and the interior.

Moreover, the front of the product has discreet branding stamped on it. Furthermore, an intricate layer has been added to give it an uneven shine similar to the shiny black bags you use to line your trash cans.

Interested buyers can get their favorite pieces of these Balenciaga Trash Pouch bags, which are selling for €1,400 or $1,790. Select boutiques of the fashion label, alongside some online stores, are also offering these bags.
