First it took inspiration from Ikea, and now it's looking a little closer to home

Balenciaga Has Released A Third Expensive Shopping Bag Lookalike

It would seem that the heads of major fashion brands are having us on a little bit at the moment. For example, last spring, Balenciaga released a Dhs5,410 shopping bag that looked identical to Ikea's Frakta bag that you can pick up in store for just Dhs3... 

And then Prada went and released a paper clip-inspired money clip for Dhs655, followed again by Balenciaga who released a tote reminiscent of its own in-store shopping bags that retailed for Dhs4,000 - and it immediately sold out. 

Clearly on to a good (?) thing with these tongue-in-cheek accessories, Balenciaga is trying its luck once again with a brand new shopping bag tote that was released this week.

Coming in at a higher price than its previous bags - this one retails for Dhs6,756 - this tote is an exact calf-skin leather replica of the paper bags used in-store, complete with leather handles and silver hardware. 

The bag is still currently in stock on Colette's website, so we suggest adding to cart quick smart before it inevitably sells out.
