Furniture Brand-Inspired Hoodies

Norwood Chapters Launched its IKEA Hoodie in Two Colorways

— May 11, 2017 — Art & Design
After Balenciaga unveiled a bright blue tote bag that bared a striking resemblance to the plastic shopping bags that IKEA offers, many brands have been launching their own furniture brand-inspired apparel -- with one of latest to do so being Norwood Chapters.

Using the Fratka bag, Norwood Chapters transformed part of the boldly branded plastic shopping bag to function as a hoodie. The hood itself is made from the blue plastic, while IKEA's ribbons that display its name in yellow are featured along the arms. For a more dramatic effect, the ribbons go past the hemline of the sleeves so that they hand down.

On Norwood Chapters' website, the hoodies can be found in two different colorways: a bright blue version, and a highlighter yellow one.
