While the grocery store bags may not be a necessity for travelers, this new Balenciaga pillow is a jetsetter's dream.
The pillow, made out of 100% cotton and finished with a medium fleece, comes with a hood and drawstrings for ultimate privacy and sensory deprivation while flying. The pillow also comes with snap closures and is dry clean only. And, as Hypebeast noted, the pillow is devoid of any outward branding, which means only the in-the-know shoppers will be able to identify the soon-to-be-iconic accessory as a Balenciaga piece.

It retailed for $550 and sold out everywhere (though, if you're lucky, you may find a collectible kicking around eBay). Moral of the story? If you're lusting after this version, and are a high-fashion collector, we suggest clicking over and adding it to your online shopping cart . Then, you'll really be ready for first-class living.
