The same designer behind Vetements, Demna Gvasalia, is also the mastermind behind this giant, very pricey tongue-in-cheek bag from Balenciaga that just so happens to bear a striking resemblance to a certain tote known to anyone who has furnished their home at Ikea. While the original Balenciaga bag that retails for $2,145 is totally sold out, thankfully, Ikea's identical Frakta bag is always available both online and in stores for an extrememly reasonable $0.99.

While these pants began as a viral sensation, they actually became popular enough to both sell out and even make a celebrity cameo on none other than pre-teen style icon and Calvin Klein muse Millie Bobby Brown.

But Topshop wasn't quite done with their plastic pant madness just yet. The brand produced yet another pair of controversial lower body coverings, this time a completely translucent pair of jeans. They're the sartorial equivalent of a sauna for one.

Y/Project unleashed a pair of convertable chap denim that can be worn as pants or short-shorts with just a sliver of flesh showing in-between. If you're curious what occasion these jeans could possibly be suitable for, just turn to It-Girl Gigi Hadid, who has already been spotted out in them.

These $425 artifically mud-stained jeans had the masses wondering, couldn't you just go roll around outside and get the same effect for a whole lot less? Inexplicably, these pants have also sold out, but never fear because Nordstrom has a whole array of faux dirty denim available for you to peruse.

Likewise, the image emblazoned on the brand's Trump suit is a hard one to shake. Whether you love him or hate him, wearing 45's infinite double-chins on your crotch maybe isn't the most flattering of seaside fashions.

Fashion people love an ugly chic shoe. And while the sartorial jury's still out on this particular pair, we have a sneaking suspicion you're going to see a whole lot of these flame-covered Uggs stomping through the snow mounds in a few months, "good taste" be damned.

To the untrained eye, this may appear like just your run-of-the-mill roll of duct tape. But this particular roll was designed by Raf Simons and retails for a staggering $200. And if you're wondering why adhesive emblazoned with a vague slogan is being included in a fashion roundup, blame the product's description, which suggests it could also be used as a belt.
