Céline’s clear plastic shopping bag is now available at the Céline x Nordstrom pop-up in Seattle until the end of May — thing is, it’ll set you back $750 CAD ($590 USD). The bag, designed by Phoebe Philo, was first seen on the runway at the brand’s spring/summer 2018 show.
Although the plastic seems rather thick (perhaps to hold your fruits and cell phone) — and the bag chicly displays the Celine Paris logo — it’s still rather pricey for a clear plastic shopping bag.
Because, fashion …

Te bag is already considered somewhat of a novelty item by Philo fans, who is leaving Céline — but does it stand up to Balenciaga’s ridiculously-priced cheap looking bag? The medium-sized blue Balenciaga shopper bag, featured in the SS17 Men’s Runway Show, will set you back $2, 524 CAD ($1,990 USD).
And although it’s made of “blue wrinkled, glazed leather” it looks suspiciously like the iconic giant blue tote bag from Ikea … worth 99 cents.
