Twitter users are having a field day with a new look from Balenciaga. It looks like the luxury fashion brand is taking style notes from Joey Tribbiani from “Friends”... but it’ll cost you a pretty penny to nab his look.
Balenciaga is selling a new seven-layer oversized parka, layering multiple plaid shirts, hoodies, and fleece together to make one giant coat. It’s giving the Twitterverse a serious flashback to the episode from “Friends” where Joey put on all of Chandler’s clothes at once… but while he put together the look for free, Balenciaga is charging $9,000. Here’s what people had to say about it:
- Twitter user @DxMatilla says Balenciaga is behind the times… since Joey pioneered the idea. “Joey Tribbiani was frickin ahead of his time,” he writes.
- Another user @l0ttiehall can’t imagine dropping that much money to imitate Joey’s iconic, but ridiculous look. “Imagine spending [$9,000] on this Balenciaga coat just to look like Joey from friends in the episode where he puts all Chandlers clothes on,” she says.
- User @ibreathemakeup says Balenciaga should be honest about their inspiration. “This should be called the Joey Tribbiani jacket,” reads their tweet.
- Twitter user @jaronlikeaaron sends the message with little words, just a simple picture of Joey from the episode, where he says the classic line “Could I be wearing any more clothes?”
