When it comes to fashion, there are times when a layman is not able to comprehend a particular design or the thought process behind it. Now, we know designing clothes is an extremely tedious process – starting with idea generation, brainstorming, collecting data and raw material to the execution of the product. However, it is the final result that makes it or breaks it for a designer. Seems like luxury label Balenciaga’s latest ‘T-shirt Shirt’ has tickled the funny bones of people on the Internet and for most, it is incomprehensible. In other words, they can’t believe their eyes!
Putting out the design, Xavier Lur took to Twitter wondering why the brand was selling this design for an outrageous amount of $ 1290 (Rs. 87498 approx). The person also tweeted out the pictures, attracting a lot of reactions from social media users.

While some were just amused by the price and the design, others went up to the extent of claiming that they themselves could re-create this design. Moreover, the shirt also opened up all the gates for snarky humour that we all know Twitterati are good at. Here are some of the reactions and jokes that the post managed to elicit:
