This bag was created in a collaborative pop-up shop with French luxury house Colette and almost exactly mimics the free shopping bags one would get when they purchase something from Balenciaga. However, this luxury shopping tote is made out of calfskin while the original is made from paper. According to Paper Magazine, the leather tote is much sturdier than the paper option. spotlighted in all white with the brand's logo on the front. Additionally, the tote features a Napa leather handle, offering an elegantly simple aesthetic.

Released on June 19th, this luxury shopping tote is already sold out. This self-referential bag is a fun way to poke fun at the fashion industry and appeals well to Millennial audiences who reject traditional marketing techniques.
