Balenciaga Is Selling A 'Destroyed' Jumper For £1,150

Designer brand Balenciaga is selling a 'destroyed' crewneck jumper for £1,150 ($1,592).

And no, it isn't second hand. It's literally designed to look 'destroyed' because well... I don't know?

Maybe they were going for 'I decided to have a scrap with someone at the pub before I jumped on my spaceship' kind of vibes.

To be fair the brand is well-known for setting the trend with products such as their huge chunky 'triple s' trainers that retail at £695 ($962) - celebs such as Justin Bieber and Gigi Hadid have rocked up wearing a pair at some point.

However, even for Balenciaga's standards it does seem like quite a strange one.

Some have taken to social media to showcase how they feel about the out-there fashion item.

One user wrote: "Hi Balenciaga. Can you give me the lead time for this unfinished, jumper for £1100 please, I really want one... said no one, ever."

A second added: "Pay 1,150 € to look poor."

Another said: "You are not fooling me: they have unearthed that after 500 years."

While a fourth simply wrote: "Absurd and embarrassing."

Balenciaga says on its website that the dark blue Fairisle crewneck is made in Italy and comes in an oversized fit. It is made from 100 percent virgin wool.

But regardless of all that, there is a difference between ripped jeans and a 'destroyed' sweater.

Recently, Kim Kardashian left people baffled after she shared pictures of herself in a black Balenciaga jumpsuit/ninja costume, which she wore to her estranged husband Kanye West's listening party for his new album Donda.

Many on social media where having a hard time understanding why she chose such an outfit.

It covered her whole body, head to toe, and the only body parts you could see were her mouth and eyes.

One fan said: "Noooo miss Kimmy what is this," while another quipped: "What are we doing, love?"

A third jokingly pointed out: "One fart and it's over."

They are not wrong there.

Another added: "You look like you were going to rob a house."
