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.

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.
