Balenciaga vs IKEA

Proving fashion folks do have a sense of humor (maybe), style-minded DIY-ers have recently taken to Instagram with abandon. They’re showing off makeshift items they fashioned out of IKEA’s very blue, very plastic, very ubiquitous Frakta bag.



The IKEA hackers are playing off the friendly feud that erupted when Balenciaga debuted its leather version of the famed bag, but costing around $1750 instead of the original 99 cents. IKEA responded with tongue-in-cheek instructions for spotting the difference between the two.

Call it the parody that launched a thousand parodies…
