Balenciaga Is Selling ‘Trash Pouch’ Inspired By Garbage Bags

Luxury and high-end brands frequently introduce things that, to the segment of the globe that cannot afford them, make absolutely no sense.

However, these brands appeal to a sizable segment of the population who tend to find “beauty” in everything that bears these labels. Recently, the most costly trash bag has just been released by high-end fashion brand Balenciaga.

With its Trash Pouch, a product that was inspired by a garbage bag, luxury clothing company Balenciaga has once again taken everyone by surprise. Actually, the bag does resemble a garbage bag, so it’s not just the name. But hold on—this isn’t over yet. The bag costs $1,790, which is around ₹1,42,569. 

The bag was a part of Balenciaga’s ready-to-wear lineup for the upcoming fall season. It was held in the hands of models as they walked the ramp. The bag features a glossy covering and is constructed of calfskin leather, according to the New York Post. It includes drawstrings that can be pulled to close it and is available in four distinct colours: black, white, blue, and yellow.

Obviously, the Trash Pouch concept did not sit well with the majority of internet users, no matter how innovative the idea may be.

Balenciaga has unveiled a brand new it-bag for Autumn/Winter 22 – dubbed the “world’s most expensive trash bag” by the fashion house itself.

The luxury fashion designer is not one to shy away from internet-breaking controversy, having released a pair of torn and dirty $1,850 (£1,500) trainers earlier this year which caused outrage in China.

The cownskin Trash Pouch, which retails for a cool $1,790 (£1,470), has whipped up a colossal online frenzy of its own.

“It’s the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine,” wrote one user of the latest Balenciaga drop.

Another person tweeted: “The next time someone calls me a trash bag I’m gonna assume we’re talking about the balenciaga thingy.”

A third added: “If you don’t see the beauty in the Balenciaga trash bag you just don’t understand fashion. It only costs $1,790.”

The design was first revealed in March in a dramatic show that saw models walk down the runway clutching their Trash Pouches in the midst of an indoor snow storm – a vision dreamt up by the creative director Demna Gvasalia’s portrayal of his upbringing in Georgia.

The show also delivered a message of solidarity to Ukrainian families fleeing the ongoing Russian invasion.

“I couldn’t miss an opportunity to make the most expensive trash bag in the world, because who doesn’t love a fashion scandal?” Demna said of the bags in an interview with WWD.

“The pouches – resembling plastic trash bags – are made out of calfskin leather, and are offered in black, blue, yellow and white colorways. Balenciaga’s logo is subtly printed on the front.”
