All he wants for Christmas? Introducing the designer 'douche bag' - an 'all purpose' pouch for men selling for a cool $135

A French designer with a sense of humor is releasing a toiletry case called the Douche Bag. 

According to A.P.C. head designer Jean Touitou, the $135 lamb leather drawstring bag, which is emblazoned with the words 'Douche Paris' at the opening, is 'an excellent all-purpose pouch, for men'.

In a rather cryptic explanation, he told New York Magazine: 'The name meaning: those who know don't say, and those who say don't know.'

Funny accessory: French brand A.P.C. has launched a $135 lamb leather toiletry case called the Douche Bag

Mr Touitou began: 'I find it difficult to write about this, since it's impossible to translate the French expression "mise en abyme"'.

He added that the concept 'made me laugh so hard... whenever I am depressed, this does like three Xanax to me.'

The Douche Bag, essentially a toiletry case, comes in black, white, yellow, grey or and khaki.

A.P.C. began selling the bags in U.S. retail stores in late November. 

Unsurprisingly, reactions to the bag on Twitter have been humorous, with one person tweeting: '"Have you seen my douche bag?" takes on a new meaning.'

Another commenter wrote: 'In a way, it's surprising that no one has thought of this before. An actual douche bag.'

The French ready-to-wear brand, which was founded in 1987, has previously collaborated with Kanye West on a line of apparel and accessories that range in price from $90 for a white T-shirt to $2,200 for a sheepskin jacket.

It's not the first time A.P.C. has taken a humorous approach to its designs and products.

In April 2012, the brand teamed up with Aesop to launch Post-Poo Drops, a bathroom deodorizer to be used by 'those who eat, drink and digest daily.'

A description read: 'In instances where vigorous activity has occurred in the bathroom, dispense several drops of this carefully crafted Aesop product into the toilet bowl after flushing.'
