Balenciaga is selling $2000 version of a shopping bag you can buy for 70 cent

Who hasn’t wanted a shopping bag worth a couple of thousand dollars?

Fashion can be a pretty mad industry and this is just one example of that.

A high fashion brand called Balenciaga is currently selling a "bleu sulphate" shopping bag online for $2,145.

Its colour and shape are remarkably like the ever-practical and durable Ikea plastic tote bag, which costs about 70c here.
