Oh Balenciaga, stop trying to make weird bags happen, they’re not going to happen. First there was the Ikea leather shopping tote, and then there was the bag that resembled your grandmother’s couch, and now my friends, Balenciaga has gone and done it again. That’s right, you can now buy a leather ‘plastic’ shopping bag with kittens on. Demna Gvasalia, is known for some pretty wild and out there designs, often taking elements of streetwear culture and, for some reason, producing them at a luxury price point. This bag just might take the cake though. And, if it weren’t strange enough to tote around your belongings in a leather version of a plastic bag, Gvasalia went ahead and added a graphic featuring kittens to the front of the bag.
I have a lot of questions here guys. For one I get that there are some major cat people in this world, which honestly I will never quite understand as I simply cannot stand cats, but really do you love them enough to carry them around on a luxury handbag? I’m mildly obsessed with french bulldogs, and when I say mildy I actually mean more like the word that rhymes with mildly and starts with a w. I’d chase a frenchie down the street if it meant a chance to pet it. However I certainly wouldn’t carry around a bag with puppies on it. Now let’s just say you can’t help but show off your cat-love.
Ok, to each his own I guess, but a leather plastic tote? How does one even comfortably carry this bag all day long? The handles are tiny and the top, like the other 15 plastic bags swimming around under your bathroom sink, is wide open. Balenciaga, please tell me what gives?
