People Think This $2,000 Balenciaga Bag Looks Like an IKEA Tote & Man Do They Have Jokes

So, funny story, French high-fashion brand Balenciaga apparently ran out of ideas and decided to remake a classic instead: the iconic 99-cent IKEA shopping bag. The Balenciaga version costs $2,145 and is made of leather glazed to look like plastic, which, just, why. Essentially, if you bought some affordable Swedish homeware recently, you are now a fashion icon (what do you mean, that's not how it works?). Whatever Balenciaga's reasoning for this fashion-forward creation, the internet had thoughts, per usu.
