For all your extravagant shopping needs.

AFTER THE MEATBALLS, the most iconic thing IKEA has ever given the world is the big blue shopping bag for 70c.

Behold its glory:

It’s always there for you.

However, in a delightfully surreal twist, US designer Balenciaga has debuted an “extra-large shopper tote bag” of their own.

And it looks *slightly* familiar

Sure, it’s made out of “blue wrinkled, glazed leather” but anyone can see that this is the IKEA bag – just in fancier form.

And, worst of all, it’s coming in with a lovely $2145 (€2000) price tag attached.

Fashion, you’ve done it again

The big question for summer 2017

^you vs the guy she told you not to worry about.

IKEA themselves even commented on the new Balenciaga product, telling Today:

We are deeply flattered that the Balenciaga tote bag resembles the Ikea iconic sustainable blue bag for 99 cents. Nothing beats the versatility of a great big blue bag!

We’d have to agree.
