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.
