Luxury or Audacity?
The fashion industry’s knack for striking the odd and bizarre nerve is a story as old as time. At the moment, Balenciaga is the shining star of the story because they have taken the idea of fashion and luxury to a whole different level. Perhaps, mere mortals like us are not bound to understand the nuances of high fashion, or maybe we have brain cells that can see the absurdity of paying $1790 for a garbage bag.
Balenciaga launched their ‘Trash Pouches’ in their Winter 22 Collection fashion show, and if you haven’t guessed it already, these ‘trash pouches’ were inspired by actual garbage bags. Talk about high points of inspiration. The ‘trash pouches’ have left the internet in splits as netizens are still not able to discern if this is a fact or a joke. Quite naturally, Twitter is filled with responses, with a good majority of them coming down hard on the whole aspect of luxury and high fashion. Well, trash bags aren’t mere trash anymore. Let us look at a few reactions and responses to see if Twitter town perceives high fashion with precision.
We are still talking about trash, right?

This seems like a more reasonable explanation.
Balenciaga is a social experiment to see how many dumb bitches will buy their shit just bc it’s balenciaga. That new “trash pouch” gotta be a joke 😭

Just saw the Balenciaga trash pouch. All I can say is this:
If we have to live in a frat pack movie, at least it’s Zoolander.

All is well till they say “inspired by a garbage bag.” Like really? Are we going back to the absurdist phase?
It’s fair to say I know nothing about #fashion.#Balenciaga is selling a $1,790 handbag it boasts was “inspired by a garbage bag.” Made from premium calfskin leather, the “Trash Pouch” is now being rolled out to stores. #wut
