Balenciaga Are Flogging a $5500 High Vis Jacket

Fashion 02/08/2021

Absolutely ridiculous scenes on the Balenciaga website show a yellow high vis jacket on sale for $5500 (NZD). 

The Men’s Reversible Parka in Yellow, made in Italy from 100% polyester, is up for sale for a bank-breaking amount but, why? 

With its technical ripstop fabric, cocoon shape, foldable hood with drawstrings and the unclear Balenciaga branding on the front & back - we can’t see much difference between the high-end jacket and one you can grab down the road from a local store!

We will admit it does look like quality, but who can justify paying $5500 for a work jacket? Huge yikes.

What do you reckon? Is it worth the investment, or are they flogging us for everything we’ve got?
