Balenciaga is now facing backlash for a pair of pants it released for the Fall/Winter 2021 season.
Dubbed the “Trompe-L’Oeil Sweatpants,” the made in Italy bottoms are constructed of organic heavy fleece with a wide-leg silhouette and micro tartan poplin waistband with an embroidered Balenciaga tag. But many on social media are pointing out that the luxury fashion house appears to be appropriating “sagging” with the sweatpants priced at $1,190 USD.
It is interesting to note that “trompe l’oeil” refers to a technique used in art to create an optical illusion for the viewer which may offer insight into the concept of Balenciaga’s design.
In case you missed it, Lil Uzi Vert recently revealed fans almost ripped his $24 Million USD diamond off his forehead.
