The Trash Pouch costs close to $1,800, and it goes by the name of that.
The bag was a part of the designer’s Winter 2022 360 Show, which contained “enlarged and exaggerated” accessories, according to the website for the high-end clothing company.
The only information the firm provided online about the bag was that it was inspired by a trash bag.

“Balenciaga is a genuine social experiment to determine exactly who is stupid enough to make purchases. A trash bag is being sold for $1,790. I’m going to hear from someone that it’s art, “a user posted.
Others only found it amusing.
“You simply don’t understand fashion if you can’t find the beauty in the Balenciaga trash bag. The price is only $1,790 “Added a different user.
