Did the Kardashians Kop Their Runway Show Inspiration From Karl Lagerfeld?

It seems the Kardashians and Karl Lagerfeld may now have more in common than their infatuation with incorporating excessive "K's" into their branding language.

It seems the Kardashians and Karl Lagerfeld may now have more in common than their infatuation with incorporating excessive "K's" into their branding language.

Today, Kourtney and Kim both posted an image of the set for their first-ever Kardashian Kollection runway show, set to take place during fashion week in Sydney, Australia (which Handbag.com alerted us to). And it looks a little familiar.

It doesn't exactly resemble the Grand Palais, but it is still difficult not to recall Karl Lagerfeld's tradition of erecting a giant sculpture for his models to weave around at Chanel's OTT Paris runway shows.

But the inspiration doesn't end there. According to Kim's blog, the show has an "international theme," essentially the same theme as Chanel's fall 2013 runway show, which Lagerfeld described as "global," thereby erecting a giant globe.

Chances are Chanel won't sue--we don't think there's actually going to be any brand confusion--but you have to admit it's a little tacky. Especially considering the Kardashian krew has gotten into trouble for this sort of thing before.
