Mere months after Kendall and Kylie Jenner landed in sizzling water for promoting “vintage” T-shirts that includes, inexplicably and with out permission, photographs of Tupac Shakur, Notorious B.I.G. and different iconic musicians with the truth stars’ personal footage superimposed on peak, the sisters are as soon as once more the topic of the mistaken more or less media consideration.
This time, the talk issues the Jenner siblings’ lately launched Kendall + Kylie fall purse line. One of the goods, a top-handle take hold of modeled after a Chinese takeout container, bears a placing resemblance to a bag from Deborah Lloyd’s Fall 2014 Kate Spade (then Kate Spade New York) assortment. Lloyd, who’d spent a lot of the previous 12 months on journeys to Asia — in particular Shanghai and Tokyo — took inspiration from her travels.
Of path, there are distinctions between the baggage. The Kate Spade model includes a pagoda. The $150 Kendall + Kylie purse is a ways much less culturally delicate. It bears the phrases “KK Express — Los Angeles, CA” around the entrance. The kind surrounds a graphic of a tiger. Worst of all, the bag is known as the “Lee leather clutch,” after the preferred/stereotypical Asian surname.
Ethically, the bag is past questionable. And but it’s already offered out.
