$2 USD in Thailand, $2500 USD at Balenciaga.
Leave it to Demna Gvasalia to repurpose Thai laundry bags — after all, the man stole a security guard’s T-shirt to cover T Magazine. It should come without surprise that part of Balenciaga’s Fall/Winter 2016 collection bore an uncanny resemblance to traditional Thai laundry bags.

You can purchase Balenciaga’s Bazar Shopper online or in-store — The large size is available in-store only. Holding a $2 USD price in Thailand, would you cop Gvasalia’s version?
