This $1,100 Balenciaga Shopping Bag Has Already Sold Out

Irony doesn't come cheap in Balenciaga's books.

Everything Balenciaga and Vetements designer Demna Gvasalia touches turns to sold-out fashion items. Even a shopping bag.

As part of Balenciaga's takeover of retailer Colette, the fashion house debuted a $1,100 shopping bag. It looks like a regular paper one you'd toss out at first glance, but it's actually crafted out of calfskin, leather, and silver, and has a zipper closing.

So, it's not your typical shopper but it is a whole lot of cash for irony. Then again, we expect nothing less from the designer who popularized DHL t-shirts.

Unfortunately, the ultra fancy shopping bags are sold out, but the Balenciaga-Colette collab runs through August 5, so keep your fancy fingers crossed for a restock.
