The IKEA FRAKTA Cap Keeps the Balenciaga Saga Going

From the folks at Chinatown Market x Pleasures.

All’s fair in love and fashion as the Balenciaga saga continues. To recap: Demna Gvaslia dropped the Balenciaga Arena, a $2,150 USD take on the $1 USD FRAKTA. The Swedish home goods company then responded with an ad to tell the “real deal” from the fake. Now enter Chinatown Market and Pleasures, who present the IKEA FRAKTA cap — a hat made reconstructed from the iconic, plastic carryall.

How to identify an original IKEA FRAKTA cap.

  1. WEAR IT. If it crinkles, it’s the real deal.
  2. MULTIFUNCTIONAL. Other than keeping your head fitted, It can carry groceries, bricks and even water.
  3. THROW IT IN THE DIRT. A true FRAKTA cap is simply rinsed off with a garden hose when dirty.
  4. PRICE TAG. Only $38

The cap is limited to 50 pieces and can is available for pre-order online.
