Balenciaga Tape Roll Bracelet Causes Online Stir
Mar 24 2024 Share

Balenciaga has stirred both amusement and bewilderment with its latest offering: a bracelet that resembles a roll of Scotch tape, priced exorbitantly at €3,000 (S$4,400).

This audacious move by the luxury fashion brand to elevate mundane objects to haute couture status is met with a mix of mockery and subtle admiration online.

Unveiled during Paris Fashion Week as part of Balenciaga’s fall/winter 2024-25 collection, the bracelet challenges conventional notions of fashion by transforming packaging materials into coveted accessories.

Worn by a model on the runway alongside a powder blue dress cinched with adhesive tape, the sticky tape bracelet gained viral attention after appearing on the TikTok page of fashion influencer @highsnobiety.

Comments range from skepticism about the absurdity of luxury consumption to playful banter, with some jokingly suggesting alternatives like purchasing from an indie brand called Scotch.

In China, fashionistas are inspired to create their own versions of sticky tape accessories, hoping to capture the trend without the Balenciaga price tag.

While the official pricing remains undisclosed, anticipation builds, with speculations suggesting that the bracelet could command as much as €3,000, further fueling the debate around luxury fashion and consumerism.

With performances by the likes of Tiziana Calleja and Kevin Paul, as well as a fire juggler, attendees were treated to an evening of entertainment whilst enriching their awareness about eco-friendly alternatives to most of our lifestyles.

Organized by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), Earth Hour is an annual event urging individuals, communities, and businesses to dedicate one hour to the planet.

During this time, landmarks and businesses worldwide switch off non-essential electric lights from 8:30 to 9:30 pm, usually on the last Saturday of March, symbolizing a commitment to environmental conservation.

Originating as a lights-off movement in Sydney, Australia, in 2007, Earth Hour has grown into a worldwide phenomenon. Malta enthusiastically participated, hosting various activities in Valletta.
