Opening Ceremony is bringing back Chinatown laundry bags as a fashion piece

If you follow closely the new trends of fashion like me, you must have noticed the most recent trend. I mean, of course, fashion pieces inspired by the iconic IKEA blue bag. It all began when luxury brand Balenciaga decided to create a tote bag very similar to an IKEA bag. As a consequence, the internet went into delirium. Now, it is time for Opening Ceremony to do the same.

It has almost become a challenge and there are several pieces on the market with the blue color of the IKEA bag and even the classic yellow lettering of the Swedish furniture brand.

Now, Opening Ceremony responds to fashion’s latest obsession by bringing back its Chinatown laundry bag-lookalikes. The bags come in three sizes: small, medium and large. Featuring the nostalgic red, white and blue plaid pattern, the bag is made in a sturdy plastic material.

Opening Ceremony’s signature logo patch is in the front of the bag. This carryall is perfect for holding all of your everyday essentials but I can quite overcome the fact that it looks exactly like the old bags I used to take on vacation with my parents when the luggage wasn’t enough to carry all of our clothes.

Liking or not, this trend is quite amusing and I can’t wait to see what is next in this nostalgic fashion era.
