Ikea responds behind with sass to Balenciaga’s copycat receptacle bag

May 7, 2017 - garden totes

Last week, high conform code Balenciaga had a insolence to sell a copycat version of Ikea’s $0.99 Frakta take-home bag for a whopping $2,145.

The internet laughed, we were appalled, and everybody questioned this thing we call “fashion.”

Now, a seat hulk has responded to a Balenciaga duplicate by reporting a bag as a strange with a post on a sites clearly destined during a conform house.

According to Creativity, Swedish group ACNE combined this ad to indoctrinate business on how to heed between Ikea’s talent strange bag pattern and Balenciaga’s fake. Here’s how we can tell a genuine from a knock-off:

  1. SHAKE IT. If it rustles, it’s a genuine deal.

  2. MULTIFUNCTIONAL. It can lift hockey gear, bricks, and even water.

  3. THROW IT IN THE DIRT. A loyal FRAKTA is simply rinsed off with a garden hose when dirty.

  4. PRICE TAG. Only $0.99.

No one would dare chuck their $2,145 Balenciaga receptacle in a dirt. Fake! Fake! Would we use a $2,145 receptacle to lift all your critical bricks? No way! Fake!

This responses comes shortly after a Balenciaga bag strike a market. ACNE Creative Director Johan Holgrem said, “I wanted to act fast, so we contacted a customer a day after and we said, ‘We’ll have artistic work prepared within dual hours.'”

The sass is real.

ACNE conform photographer Anders Kylberg even shot a Frakta bag in a studio to opposition a stylings used by Balenciaga to publicize their bag.

Holgrem wasn’t annoyed by a copycat design. He said it’s “unexpected and brilliant.”

“I like a flirt,” he explained. “And we thought, ‘Why not coquette back?’ And we did.”

Flirt they did. Ikea brought a sass, and valid once and for all that they’ve got a marketplace lonesome on blue, plastic, crinkly receptacle bags.
