Have We Reached Kardashian Saturation? Now Mom Kris Kardashian-Jenner's Has Her Own Line for QVC--Take A Look
Just what the world needs: Another Kardashian clothing line. Mother Kris, who recently hyphenated her last name to include Kardashian, is launching a line with QVC this fall.
The Kris Jenner Kollection (yes, it's really called that) will include such staples from Kris' wardrobe as black leggings, white button-downs and black blazers--all of which the Kardashian matriarch frequently sports on her family's popular reality TV show. The line will launch on QVC's live New York Fashion Week broadcast on Sept. 8, and, like a true self-promoting Kardashian, Kris will promote her kollection by wearing it throughout the new season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, and tweeting about it.
The pieces will range from $35 to $140, and while we could live without the zippered leggings (seriously, why does every celebrity line have to have them? ahem, Lohan) there are a few pieces from the line that actually kind of work, like the sleeveless Tuxedo dress, shown in the look book.
Besides being at war with the letter C, Kris Kardashian-Jenner revealed to WWD that she has some other rather lofty goals:
Wearing white to a wedding when you're not that bride? It's the cardinal wedding sin. Or it was.
Kate Middleton famously had her bridesmaids wear white--and we don't have to tell you how well that went over, particularly for a certain, um, callipygian Maid of Honor.
Two months later the other Kate--Kate Moss, of course--also dressed her bridesmaids and flower girls (all 15 of them) in white. Guests Carine Roitfeld, Bella Freud, Naomi Campbell and Stella McCartney were also spotted wearing the shade at the wedding.
And now Kim Kardashian has jumped on the bandwagon, choosing white gowns that look remarkably like wedding dresses for her bridesmaids at recent nuptials. And while limited photos of Kim K's big wedding have been released, we already know that at least Lindsay Lohan wore white, and apparently the invite called for guests to wear black or white.
So what's going on here?
The bag on the left is Botkier's 'Trigger Clyde,' which debuted in Fall 2009. The bag on the right is from Sears' Kardashian Kollection, which hit stores this week. See the problem?
Botkier certainly does. The contemporary womenswear brand, which launched in 2004, took to their blog to vent: "We just discovered how our Botkier ‘Clyde’ was simply copied by Kardashian Kollection for Sears. They say imitation is the highest form of flattery but we don’t think so…"
