  • Balenciaga's $9,000 coat is pretty much a bunch of jackets on top of each other

    Balenciaga have come out with another head-scratching doozy, and this time it's way more expensive than its t-shirt shirt and car mat skirts. More money doesn't buy more sense though, with the imminent release of its $9,000 seven layer coat as part of the label's autumn/winter collection. SEE ALSO: Crocs makes heels now, because we live in a very strange world As described by Matches Fashion, the navy parka coat is made of of seven separate layers for cold weather. The coat comprises of "plaid shirts, jersey hoodies, and technical fleeces, featuring cuffed sleeves, two front patch pockets, a drawstring hood and a coordinating hem."  To put it simply: It's a jacket, over many other jackets. "For $10k, ya can really start dressin' w/ Balenciaga 😭😈" pic.twitter.com/t7d4iQei22 — The Internet Beggar (@Internet_Beggar) August 29, 2018 Aside from the fact you could do the same thing by stacking a whole bunch of jackets hiding in your closet together, the whole ensemble also appears to be pretty damn heavy. As @caleb_stephen pointed out on Twitter, it's like that <em>Friends</em> episode where Joey wears all of Chandler's clothes.  pic.twitter.com/Sqfrjbh08t — Caleb Fountain (@caleb_stephen) August 28, 2018 Do we get a commission if Balenciaga come out with pants stitched onto pants next? TBH, you guys can have the idea for free. [h/t Hypebeast] WATCH: South Korea's body painting festival takes fantasy to a new level
