The internet pretty much imploded with glee when the Balenciaga design was revealed – mainly as it just so happens to look really, really like the iconic blue Ikea carrier bag we've all used to lug home a lamp, some questionable wall art and 200 tea lights at some point or another.As fashion fans have noticed, Balenciaga's 'extra-large shopper tote bag' is basically an upgrade of the Ikea FRAKTA carrier bag.

In fact, the only real differences are that the Balenciaga is made of leather and the Ikea has a double strap with its name printed up and down the handle.
