Demna Gvasalia's New Balenciaga Shoppers Scream Laundry Bag

$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.

The lineup included a large ($2,525 USD), medium ($1,645 USD) and small ($1495 USD) Bazar alongside two wallets. Gvasalia was oblivious, citing:

“This is just a prototype, but the number of people who have stopped me in the street to ask where it’s from. Even an old lady came up to tell me this morning that she had the same one at home. I thought, ‘I don’t think it is…”

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?
