The famous fashion brand Balenciaga is one of the most prestigious names in the fashion world. The french fashion house was founded by Cristóbal Balenciaga who was a Spanish designer with reputation as a couturier of uncompromising standards and was referred to as “the master of us all” by Christian Dior, a fellow designer.
With celebrities and powerful people like Kim Kardashian, Beyoncé and Salma Hayek preferring the famed french fashion house, it isn’t a surprise finding out that many of their products are insanely overpriced.
But this one product by Balenciaga has reeeeallly stumped some people
And it’s a handbag, of all things
It’s priced at $3,670 on the famous online fashion retailer Net-A-Porter
People are slightly uncomfortable with the high price tag

Because it looks LITERALLY like a kambal rakhnay wala thaila.
I swear every Asian household has a bag like this with a blanket in it and Balenciaga are selling it for £2k??? pic.twitter.com/X0SmFVaaLK

The brand definitely gives ZERO fucks because they’re literally just calling it the blanket printed tote
The Net-a-Porter site’s description of the bag says that the brand found inspiration in your everyday kambal walay thailay
“Finding beauty in the every day, Balenciaga’s oversized tote is inspired by classic blanket bags”
It comes in all different shades, if the blue one isn’t your choice
And if $3,670 is a little heavy on your pocket you can spring for this small one as well
Or this one with a plain print
Not sure if we feel this bag is worth buying from Balenciaga when you can literally just drive over to Saddar and buy this bag, with a kamal inside
ALL FOR LESS THAN $50, EVEN
What do you think about this… ummm… “blanked printed leather tote”?
