You Can Now Buy A Shirt On A T-Shirt, And It’ll Cost You A Grand
Oh, good. Balenciaga are back being unusual bastards again - this time it's with a t-shirt that's got another shirt stuck to the front of it.
We have a lot of questions about this latest design. Namely, WHY?
What you're looking at here is two perfectly acceptable items of clothing sewn together to make a weird hybrid.
And if you're wondering why it looks familiar, it's because of that episode of Friends where Joey wore all of Chandler's clothes at once.
The shirts have even got both sets of sleeves, in case you've got four arms or maybe a Siamese twin.
In the photos posted on Instagram, a model lies down in the shirt with the spare set of sleeves just dangling on the floor. It's a look.
If you're after some easy desk-to-pub clobber, though, this could totally work.

Balenciaga says that it has "two wearing options", so you can go for a t-shirt during the day then switch to a button-up shirt in the evening... with the t-shirt hanging down your back like a cape.
As well as the t-shirt and shirt combo, there's the option to buy a short-sleeved shirt with a long-sleeved shirt sewn to it. You can transform from looking like a science teacher in summer to an estate agent in the blink of an eye. Winner.
You'll need a massive coat to contain all this extra sleeve, but thankfully Balenciaga's new season parkas are big enough to keep four men dry and warm - even if they are all wearing two shirts each.
What this reminds us of the most is being back at primary school. Remember when they first let you loose with a sewing needle and you accidentally sewed your work to your trousers? That's basically what's happened here.
It'll cost you £935 for the t-shirt version, or £1,085 for the shirts - although, when you think about it, that's only about £500 a shirt. Bargain.
The fashion label was also behind that bizarre £1,600 blue plastic bag last year (you know, the one that looked exactly like a 40p IKEA carrier bag), which ruffled a lot of feathers.
We're hoping for a four-legged trouser to laugh at next up.
