The same company that sold a $2,865 parka with Kanye West, is now the maker of a literal Douche Bag. The men's drawstring bag is made of lamb leather, and comes in black, white, yellow, grey, ad khaki. Designer Jean Touitou can only explain the bag's name with a French phrase that he says is impossible to translate, "mise en abyme." A quick Google search will lead you to "placed into abyss," but it's most likely a toiletry case—douche does mean shower in French. Own your own Douche Bag sometime in the next week.
