Balmain Bags Already Sold Out: WHY?!?

These fugly Balmain bags are available via Net-A-Porter, and, in the case of the black Matelasse messenger (3rd from left), already sold out. Are there seriously that many women out there willing to shell out nearly $2000 for ho-hum bags just because Balmain makes them? Apparently so. You can check out the Swarovski crystal-encrusted Leo (left) and Punk suede studded bag here if you'd like further information, but I wouldn't bother if I were you. They're priced at $2920 and $3925, respectively. I know, say what? At least the boring quilted version is only $1915. Oh, don't even get me started on the leather fringe thing priced at $2315. It's such a ridiculous design with the ring-embellished fringe hanging aimlessly from a suspended belt along the front of the bag. Totally uninspired and unworthy of Balmain. There is nothing "rocker chic" about these bags. Better luck next time.

    I still can't get over how bad these bags are! I would be upset if I received one for a gift, let alone pay those ridiculous prices myself.
