Balenciaga Released A $2,000 Bag That Looks Very Familiar To IKEA Shoppers

By Mark Pygas

Every now and then, I go to IKEA and get one of those massive tote bags they sell for 99 cents. Why? They're sturdy enough to last for years, and you can fill them up with those free tiny pencils on the way out to make your money back.  

If an IKEA bag cost $2,145, then you'd have to steal a lot of pencils to make your money back. Way more than you could fit in the bag. That's why people are finding it a little odd that Balenciaga's latest fashion must-have looks exactly like the Swedish counterpart.
