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:
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.
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.
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.
