From Zoolander to Ab Fab, fashion has been parodied and lampooned since ruffles and cuffs were invented. But truth, as they say, is stranger than fiction, as was revealed this week with Balenciaga’s Fall / Winter 2018 collection, which feature two pine tree keychains which look alarmingly like the air-fresheners seen hanging off the rear-view mirror in any self-respecting cab. In a choice of two colours, baby blue or baby pink, resplendent with gold embossed branding, they retail at $214 each. Ironic? Absolutely. Fabulous? Well, unless they smell forest fresh or are secret teleportation devises that take the carrier wherever they want to be in the world in a blue / pink flash… we think not.
