We're not kidding: What you're looking at is a $2,000 luxury designer bag
Meet the Balenciaga Cabas Shopper. Perhaps inspired by the palengke bag?
(SPOT.ph) Just when you thought high fashion couldn't get more adventurous—wait no, that's not the word—confusing after attempting to make acne look trendy, European luxury designer brand Balenciaga dabbles in palengke-chic fashion by creating a shoppers' bag that looks like, well, a palengke bag. You know, those huge striped bags made from nylon which you can buy for P50 when you shop in Divisoria?
But, well. This is fashion. The lamb leather rendition fetches $2,000, but if you want to look even more luxurious while buying veggies and fresh meat at the market, go for the snakeskin version—it's only $10,000 anyway. Say hello to the Cabas Shopper:
If you think this is a joke, it's really not. The Cabas Shopper appeared on Demna Gvasalia’s debut Fall/Winter fashion with Balenciaga, and of course, the oversized bag caught people's attention. It's already available online, if you're interested!
Here's to more luxurious palengke trips ahead?
