The world of fashion is ever-changing and, while it can be host to several high-fashion trends, it can also boast a selection of bizarre and all-out horrifying ensembles.
From denim underwear to see-through shorts, there are numerous things you look at and simply think "Why?" And this time is no different. Bottega Veneta has recently released a bag that has elicited a very strong reaction.
Keep scrolling to see all the pictures, as well as a whole range of other, expensive but ugly, designer handbags...
The fashion industry has always been controversial.

People love to make a statement through their clothes.
Many people are desperate to keep up with the latest trends.
But sometimes, trends can get all-out weird.
The latest trend to take over comes from the least threatening area of fashion...
Now you've all heard of Bottega Veneta, right?
Remember when they released these bad boys?
via: Bottega VenetaNow I'm all about platform boots, but these babies need to go straight into the trash. There is no way you'd catch me walking around in what has been described as "vegetable-tanned calfskin."
In what world does that sound appealing?

If you're looking for something a little more expensive but just as ugly, then maybe opt for these:

Would you be caught dead in these?
via: Bottega VenetaI mean, at least the style is available in a less dreary color, if you think a nude pink can help spice up the morbid look. For almost 1097 dollars, you think you'd be getting something a little more worth the paychecks.
But it's not just footwear where things get a little questionable...
Who comes up with some of this stuff?
Then they get put onto a catwalk...
But the latest competitor to take the reigns is none other than the "Dog Poo Bag."
via: Bottega VenetaThat is the casual name that was given to the "BV Twist."
According to its official description on the website, this bag is a "soft clutch with knotted handle in woven leather."
via: Bottega VenetaAnd here are the highlights, just in case you didn't notice them already... Firstly, it is a "soft sack shape with [a] handle that looks casually knotted and slips around the wrist" with an "iconic intrecciato weave in a subtly amplified new dimension..." Whatever that means.
It continues, outlining some other details we all missed...
via: Bottega VenetaThe bag contains a "calf leather lining" as well as an "internal zip pocket and a "zip opening at bottom of the bag."
And some extra good news for you all...
via: Bottega VenetaThe bag is also available in two other quirky colors that would be hard to match with your daily outfits.
And it can be all yours for the low-low price of 2142 bucks!
via: Bottega VenetaSo, you're telling me that this Italian company is selling what essentially looks like a "dog poo bag" (according to the internet) that you can get for under $2 for that extortionate price?
I mean, if you're going to do something like that, you're just asking to be roasted.
via: Bottega VenetaAnd it seems as though Twitter was having a wonderful time letting BV know exactly what they thought of their release.
