Warm weather goods are just coming to the forefront in the Northern Hemisphere. Along with that comes a range of interesting summer collections from top brands, with Dior Homme's recent release providing some interesting looks. Another curious release has come from Balenciaga via Japanese retailer Isetan. An in store pop-up allowed shoppers to get hands-on with some pairs of ultra-pricey slide sandals and a collection of "supermarket" bags.

The sandals begin with a green goat leather upper and black leather outsole along with bold branding across the forefoot. Meanwhile the bags, with the "Supermarket Shopper" and "Supermarket Clip", are crafted with soft, cream-coloured leather featuring Balenciaga branding and summery print. They're designed to look like basic shopping bags, so if you're looking to stand out on your next grocery run these are the go.

All items come in at a steep Balenciaga price, with the sandals being valued at ¥73,440 JPY (approx $850), the "Supermarket Shopper" at ¥79,920 JPY (approx $920) and ¥128,520 (approx $1500).
