Balenciaga Inspired By 99 Cent IKEA Bag

Has well known designer brand Balenciaga lost their mind or are they clever? Balenciaga’s “Arena Extra-Large Shopper” looks extremely similar to  IKEA’s 99-cent “FRAKTA” bag. The Balenciaga bag has a price tag of 2,145. Many designer brands have drawn inspiration from everyday items in the past. “Moschino” came out with a fragrance called “fresh” drawing inspiration from a windex bottle for their packaging. Following the release of the “Arena Extra-Large Shopper” “Studio Hagel”, came out with a rare speed trainer inspired by the IKEA shopping bag.

There has been an internet craze following the release of the “Arena Extra-Large Shopper”. What do you guys think? Would you rock it?
