Giant Scandinavian furniture chain Ikea is best known for selling ready-to-assemble furniture, plus housewares, in a warehouse-like space. But this summer they are ready to take over the street wear fashion scene with the help of DYI enthusiasts finding creative ways to produce one-of-a-kind items inspired by the Swedish home goods brand.
From gas masks, do-rags, thongs, bags, sneakers, daddy caps, jackets and more, Check out below how Ikea is challenging not only fashion’s DYI and streetwear culture but also high end fashion brands such as Balenciaga as they made a $2,145 usd version of Ikea’s Frankta shopping bag. Balenciaga is dope and all but I’ll stick to my Ikea .99 cent tote bag.
