Balenciaga is Selling Lay’s Potato Chip Handbags Costing AU$2,900
Demna’s next fashion accessory is going viral.
There is no doubt that Balenciaga likes to push the boundaries of fashion. The brand has done it again by launching a Lay’s chip bag that’s stylish and worthy of attention. It seems better than the collection of AU$2500 trash bags that the brand launched a few months ago.
The Lay’s chip bag was by Spanish artist Santiago Sierra and Creative Director Demna Gvasalia. It was unveiled at Balenciaga’s Summer 2023 “The Mud Show” presentation. The models clutched this brilliant piece of creativity as they made their way through the muddy catwalk.
The product resembles a hand-clutched purse and will be available in the colours green, blue, red, and yellow. These are the actual colours of Lay’s potato chip packets that are available in different flavours. The purse will have a zip at the top and will come with a tag in the middle that reads ‘Balenciaga Paris.’
The bag pictures were shared by Lay’s official Instagram and even the brand’s official support account, @DemnaGram. The bag might not be a total surprise for those who follow and admire Demna’s style. After all, Demna had dropped a major hint a few months back. Demna was seen with a packet of Lay’s at a graduate fashion show in Antwerp.
The Lay’s x Balenciaga Potato Chip Bag Clutch might be priced at USD$1,800 (AU$2900). This is more expensive than the usual USD$4 one pays for the chips. The bag is made of leather with a graphic representation of the classic chip bag design. It is finished with a faithful metallic silver lining that looks pretty awesome.
The Lay’s x Balenciaga bag was spotted during the Paris Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2023. That event concluded on 4 October 2022. The bag was just one of the many unique items spotted during the event that showcased trend-setting styles and helped redefine the future of fashion. You might remember the event where Bella Hadid showed off her spray-on Coperni dress. While the dress was viral-worthy and instantly noticed, the bag quietly created another viral-worthy moment that fashion enthusiasts will remember for a while.
