When it comes to fashion, many people may struggle to understand it as it is such a subjective topic. Balenciaga is a famous luxury brand that has increased its reputation over the years. The headquarters of Balenciaga lies in Paris, France, the land of many other designer goods.

Just recently, the luxury brand announced that they’ve collaborated with Lay’s potato chips. In their recent runway show, Balenciaga featured their Lay’s Potato Chip inspired bag.

  • Yellow

This new handbag features a zipper on the top and the brand’s logo Balenciaga on the centre. For anyone who is interested in the potato chip handbag, the bag is now priced at US$1,800 (RM8,164).
