Balenciaga, a renowned luxury brand synonymous with avant-garde fashion, has once again stirred the fashion world with its latest creation — the Balenciaga Towel Skirt.
Balenciaga Skirt – Inspired by Bath Towel?
Balenciaga’s reputation for pushing fashion boundaries reached new heights with the introduction of the Towel Skirt.
Mimicking the casual elegance of a towel wrapped around one’s waist after a shower, this garment boasts an adjustable belt and hidden buckle, promising to defy gravity.
The skirt, adorned with the Balenciaga logo and crafted from 100% terry cotton, comes at a steep price of S$1,250. The internal buttons strategically maintain the illusion, avoiding any compromise to the towel-inspired design.
IKEA releases own version, 100 times cheaper
IKEA, known for its affordability and cheeky marketing, couldn’t resist the opportunity to parody Balenciaga’s creation.
The UK branch recreated the look, introducing their version of the ‘towel skirt’ and subtly promoting their VINARN towel available for a mere S$12.50 in Singapore — a staggering 100 times cheaper than Balenciaga’s Towel Skirt.
The witty response from IKEA not only highlighted the vast price difference but also added a touch of humor to the fashion face-off.
