Balenciaga's gimmicks make people talk a lot. Not only in terms of taste and aesthetics but also and above all when it comes to prices. Currently, the exact cost of this particular luxury bag in strong line with the 90s trends is not known, since it has not yet been officially released, but considering the average prices of Balenciaga's unique and creative objects, we are talking about at least 1800 dollars, about 1846 euros .

For the rest, absolutely nothing is missing: there are different tastes, exactly as in reality, which correspond to a varied palette of colors – blue, red, yellow -, silver interior with zip even a list of ingredients on the back of the accessory.
