The IKEA craze is starting to die down, but Demna Gvasalia’s affinity for turning the mundane on its head is eternal. The designer follows up his Balenciaga Arena with the Shopping Bag — and it’s exactly what it sounds like.
First seen on the 2017 fall/winter runway, the Shopping Bag is in no way disposable like the one you use to carry your lunch to work in. Priced at $1,115 USD, Balenciaga’s is made out of 100-percent calf skin and Nappa leather handles instead of recycled paper and straps that never fail to fall a part and unravel in your hands. Simple branding is printed onto the front of the bag, while the interior is finished with zip and slip pockets.
