“At this point fashion houses are all trolling consumers. A trash bag, a bag of chips [and] a paper clip,” one Instagram user said.

“What’s considered trashy when you’re poor but classy if you’re rich,” another wrote.

People cited that the last time true fashion ever existed was a decade ago, and how quickly fashion is moving away from its true form.

“Fashion truly did end in 2011,” one dismayed netizen commented.

“The social experience has these limits. So awful!! Give us back the real Balenciaga,” another wrote.
