Balenciaga, the luxe fashion house behind that £1,672 Ikea Frakta "knockoff," has done it again, folks.

Coming off its recent Ikea-related notoriety, the Italian brand has doubled down on its ~thing~, creating an £865 handbag that legit looks like a paper shopping tote.

Quick reminder: This is an item you can normally get for free (because, you know, it's a PAPER BAG WITH STRAPS).

Here's what the new bag looks like. I have to admit, it is kind of fun.

Now, take a look at the brand's own shopping bag.

Question: If you bought this in a store, would it come in another shopping bag?! What is the world coming to?

If you're into this sort of thing, I have bad news: This bag is already sold out. Yes, enough people ALREADY BOUGHT IT that it is no longer available.

I can't. Goodbye.
