In a new interview with Vogue, CEO Guram Gvasalia revealed that the label was set to release an Ikea capsule earlier this year, and although samples for the collection were made, the partnership failed to go through. We can thus assume that Demna Gvasalia loves a trip to Ikea — re: Balenciaga tote. {Vogue}
