So, We've Come To This: A $2,145 Designer Bag That Resembles A Blue IKEA Bag

April 19, 2017

This is the $2,145 Arena Extra-Large Shopper Tote Bag from French fashion house Balenciaga. It was designed to resemble a big blue 'FRAKTA' IKEA bag and is "constructed of blue wrinkled, glazed leather" to really give it that crinkly IKEA bag feel. It costs $2,145, or exactly 2,166.66 (repeating of course) times what its inspiration costs (99¢). Obviously, the only thing it's missing is being stuffed with my dirty whites to haul to the laundromat.

Keep going for a shot of a regular IKEA bag for reference.

Thanks to c, who agrees the best bag ever made is a classic JanSport backpack.

    Literally everyone who either buys shit like this, or creates shit like this because they have no talent, should be simply thrown of the edge.

    I agree

    Everyone knows there's not a bag big enough for a woman during the day and no bag small enough for a night out.

    Does that mean my wife's lipstick and wallet will come with tiny hieroglyphic instructions describing proper assembly and operation?
