The Iconic Ikea Shopping Tote Now Costs $2K Thanks To Balenciaga!

| Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueFashion SmashionPursesBalenciaga

Ikea and Balenciaga battle it out over totes!

Fashion absurdity strikes again!

Balenciaga's latest bag may seem mighty familiar to devoted Ikea shoppers — it looks nearly identical to the Swedish furniture store's now-iconic "Frakta" shopping tote!

There are some differences, however, like the material (polypropylene versus leather) and the fact that the Ikea bag has its logo written in yellow on the straps. Oh, and of course the whole tiny matter of the price — you can cop the Ikea bag for 99 cents, but you'll have to pay $2,145 to get your hands on the Balenciaga!

It's true that designers take inspiration from everywhere — just look at Jeremy Scott's latest Candy Crush-inspired line for Moschino — but to knockoff a store's shopping bag seems really high on the odd scale.

But would Ikea sue for this blatant ripoff of its design? It actually sounds like they're into the whole thing!

A spokeswoman for the retailer said:

"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!"

Ha! They are "deeply flattered" and possibly calling up their lawyers as we type, LOLz!

Would YOU spend two grand on a glorified Ikea tote, Perezcious readers??? Feel free to shop it HERE!

Reese is facing a hefty lawsuit!

Uh oh. Reese Witherspoon has just been hit with a $5 million lawsuit!

Jordann Weingartner, a Florida-based jewelry designer, is accusing the Cruel Intentions starlet of ripping off one of her designs for the actress' lifestyle site, Draper James.

In case you didn't know, Reese launched the site back in May as a place to sell her own line of Southern-inspired clothing and accessories.

Well, according to Page Six, Jordann believes the A-lister infringed on her copyright and trademark by stealing the design from her own "Magnolia collection" for use on her DJ products. She said:

"She literally stole my magnolia. I drew the design for my Magnolia Collection back in 2008. The flower isn't a traditional magnolia flower, it is my artistic take on a magnolia. My design actually looks nothing like a magnolia, and Draper James not only took the design, but also decided to call it a magnolia."

Yikes!!
