The luxury fashion house’s T-Shirt Shirt is essentially a two-for-one offer and you get an oversized tee with a checkered shirt sewn onto the front.
Buyers can choose to wear it however they want – as a tee with with a shirt hanging in front or as a shirt with a tee attached like a cape to the back – because in the world of high fashion, there is no right or wrong and it’s all about making your own individual statement.
Twitter users who can’t wait have resorted to making their own versions. @AH_Mike said he saved thousands of dollars while @electrawaves crafted a matching bottom.

Balenciaga is no stranger to making jaws drop with their outrageous designs. Just last month, it showcased a lookalike Croc sandal but reimagined as a platform heel.
Its Spring-Summer ’17 collection included an extra large tote that drew comparisons to a blanket bag.
Balenciaga followed that up with a $2000 tote that was compared to an IKEA shopping bag which retails for a fraction of the price.
Last July, it also released a carrier which resembled the brand’s paper bag but made out of lambskin. Despite the $1100 price tag, it sold out immediately.
