IKEA Trolls Balenciaga’s $925 ‘Towel Skirt’ With $10 Dupe

IKEA hilariously trolls the luxury brand Balenciaga .

The internet was ablaze when Balenciaga released its latest product, and Swedish retailer IKEA got in on the action. 

The luxury brand recently debuted a beige, terry-cotton towel skirt with a price tag of $925. The towel-skirt buttons at the waistline and is embroidered with the Balenciaga logo in the front.  According to the designer’s website,  the knee-length unisex garment comes in small and medium sizes.  

In response , IKEA took to their Instagram  page to display their version of the exorbitantly priced towel-skirt.  The retailer posted a  photo  of a male model wearing  the  VINARN bath towel which, according to its website, retails at $9.99 USD.  The man appeared to be mimicking the Balenciaga model’s post while wearing a similar black hoodie and sunglasses while holding a blue Ikea shopping bag.  

Social media commented on the retailer’s tongue-in-cheek “advertisement.”  

“I actually cannot cope. This is ICONIC,” – wrote one follower. 

One commenter offered some words of advice for Balenciaga.

“Lol, @balenciaga Ikea could teach you a lot. Towel skirts don’t have to cost hundreds of dollars 😂” 

“How to identify an original Ikea Frakta bag: 1) Shake it. 

If it rustles, it’s the real deal. 

2) Multifunctional. It can carry hockey gear, bricks, and even water. 

3) Throw it in the dirt.

 A true Frakta is simply rinsed off with a garden hose when dirty. 

4) Fold it. Are you able to fold it to the size of a small purse? If the answer is yes, congratulations. 

5) Look inside. The original has an authentic Ikea tag.
