A little while back, accessories label Botkier noticed a pretty glaring similarity between one of their signature styles and a style offered as part of the Kardashian Kollection, a collaboration between Sears and Kim Kardashian plus her sisters, Kourtney and Khloe. The Kardashians ended up with a cease and desist and the bag came down off the website. More recently, jewelry designer Alexis Bittar said he won’t be lending Kim anymore of his pieces for the same reason.
Thankfully, the Kardashians have learned their lesson: if designers object to you stealing from them, just do it elsewhere. The sisters launched a line of handbags under the Kardashian Kollection banner exclusively in Australia and–surprise–a whole new generation of designer knock-offs was born.
Here, for example is the beloved-by-models Givenchy “Nightingale” bag, in beige:
Here’s the Kardashian Kollection’s tote:
Not compelling enough? Maybe this Foley + Corinna alongside its Kardashian Kollection counterpart:
So, the Kardashians have now ripped off Botkier, Alexis Bittar and a whole slew of major luxury labels like Givenchy, Balenciaga, YSL and Proenza Schouler. Seeing as how their enemies list already includes all free-thinking individuals, it’s only a mater of time before they disappear!
