Demna Gvasalia‘s Balenciaga has always thought outside the box, reappropriating cheap, simple everyday items and reimagining them into luxurious high-end pieces — think the Bazar bag. This season, the designer has taken another everyday staple that we’re all familiar with — the IKEA shopping bag — and made it into a $2,000 USD item, constructed of real leather. Well, the Swedish furniture behemoth has responded to the blatant ripoff of its beloved shopping bag, and pokes fun at the whole situation.
