Ikea Responded To Balenciaga’s $2,145 Frakta Tote-lookalike, Hilarity Ensues

Usually, when we talk about knock-off, the non-original product (or sometime, idea) is of something poorly made and cheaply priced, but that’s not what happen in the case of Balenciaga’s $2,145 Arena Extra-Large Shopper Tote Bag.
