Balenciaga Bag Trends Spring 2017
Balenciaga Men’s Spring 2017 collection saw the debut of many oversized bags—the most prominent of which was the cobalt blue S$2386.87 Arena Creased-Leather Holdall bag.
Looks familiar? Well, you’re not the only one. Many netizens have compared it to IKEA’s oversized 90-cent FRAKTA Carrier bag.
