Hey, does this new Balenciaga "blanket bag" look familiar to you? Here's a hint: think "Bed Bath & Beyond."

Yup, Balenciaga is selling a $3,670 bag that will make you look like you are carrying a duvet cover everywhere you go.

It even has that little tag in the corner that usually says "QUEEN" or "FULL." This bag says "BALENCIAGA." Oy.

Here's the thing— this bag looks like trash. And no, I'm not just being snide about the overall appearance of the bag here: It literally looks like the plastic covering you throw in the garbage after you buy yourself one of those "bed in a bag" sets.

This is how Net-a-Porter describes Balenciaga's bag on their website.

Finding beauty in the every day, Balenciaga's oversized tote is inspired by classic blanket bags. It has been crafted in Italy from mineral-tanned textured-leather that makes its sky-blue, navy and gold baroque floral print appear brighter. This canvas-lined design is surprisingly lightweight and has internal compartments and pockets for small essentials. Carry yours by the top handles or optional shoulder strap.

I'm not quite sure that traipsing about town looking like you just robbed a HomeGoods qualifies as "finding beauty in the every day," but to each his own, I guess.

And the worst part about this bag? There's not even a cozy blanket inside!

Of course, the internet is giving Balenciaga major side-eye for even producing the bag.

Wanna steal this look? Go to the bedding section of a Kohl's, pay $45 bucks, walk away with a "trendy bag" AND a blanket.

Geez, I don't understand fashion.
