Today, alas, Balenciaga is better known for these ridiculous and ridiculously-priced men’s “double” shirts:
This is the description of the $1,490 “double shirt” on the left:
• Lightweight breathable poplin
• Two wearing options: wear the short sleeves shirt with front drape effect or the long sleeves shirt with back drape effect
• Mix of stripes print
• Buttoned collar
• Back round pleat
• Tone-on-tone nacre buttons fastening
• Made in Italy • Handwash or dry cleaning
• Composition: 100% cotton
If you are stupid enough to want one, you’ll have to wait. Balenciaga is only taking pre-orders now and won’t start shipping until July!
