The 'Gaffer Bangle': Balenciaga's latest accessory pushes fashion boundaries (and prices)


Recommended Posts



Heads are turning (and eyebrows are raising) thanks to Balenciaga's latest accessory!


This quirky piece, dubbed the 'Gaffer Bangle,' made its debut at Paris Fashion Week as part of their Fall/Winter 2024 collection. Yep, it's exactly what it sounds like — a bracelet (if you can call it that) resembling a roll of clear Scotch tape, complete with the Balenciaga logo.


Now, Balenciaga isn't shy about pushing fashion boundaries, but this one has sparked some serious debate. The price tag for this designer "tape"? A cool $3,300!

Is it high fashion or a high-priced prank? The internet is divided. Some see it as a satirical jab at consumerism and the luxury fashion world, while others think it's just plain ridiculous. On TikTok, @highsnobiety's video asking "Would you wear this?" has gone viral, sparking a heated debate with almost 8,000 comments.










So what are your thoughts? Is the Balenciaga 'Gaffer Bangle' a fashion must-have or a major miss? Well, it might not be for everyone's taste (or budget!), but I guess it gets the creative juices flowing. Maybe it'll inspire you to dig into your own hardware drawer and unleash your inner DIY fashionista? After all, a little creativity can go a long way (and save you a few thousand bucks).
