The Kardashians Threatened

They're Old Bags!

Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe Kardashian are a bunch of purse-stealing fakers -- at least according to a handbag designer, who claims the new Kardashian Kollection knocked off one of her signature bags.

Designer Monica Botkier fired off a cease and desist letter on Thursday to Sears -- the retailer currently hocking the Kardashian line -- insisting the $94 faux leather bag inarguably resembles her $600 Trigger Clyde Satchel.

According to Women's Wear Daily, Sears promptly pulled the KK bag from its website.

You see the wares, so we gotta ask ...

Sears has sold out to Porn Star Kim K. and I have burned my Sears Card. I will never walk into that store again. They are teaming up with a Porn Star!!! End of story!!!! The Kardashains are all whores.If it looks like a whore and smells like a whore then it must be a whore. Just like their mother.

The Kardashians are not smart enough to come up with their own design hence the copy!! Hope the designer sues them as she would win!!

Who f***ing cares? A bag is a bag...When is the last time you saw a bag that was COMPLETELY original? There are only so many designs.. and you people need to leave the Kardashians alone. Everyone hates them because they are SUCCESSFUL... Who cares if they got started for a dumb reason.

I love the Kardashians but thats an obvious copy. In their defence the entire line is not always created by the "said" designers. For e.g. Kimora does not design every peice in her collections. She employs a bunch of designers tells them the kind of look she's going for and than comes back when its all done and picks what peices she wants that collection. It happens more regulary than you think with mass production items. So it might not have been their doing exactly.
But like I said obvious rep-off.
I dont agrre with the copying, but I have to say The Kardashians bag looks better.
Even though I wouldnt wear either. Its not my style.

If things were reversed, KK would sue in a heartbeat, and she knows it.

Old Navy has someone who genuinely looks like Kim K and she sues. This bag was manufactured to look like the other and we have no problem???

The Kardashians are talentless. Except for porno videos. They copied other peoples designs for sure.

I wouldn't take my cat to the vet in one of those bags. But the fact is that there are a whole boat load of people who buy into the Kardashians and hand over their money as if they have a need to own something with their name on it. I don't get why people are suckered into buying stuff from no talent people, but I will never put money into someones pocket who could care less about me.

They look just like any other brand out there right now that's fashionable. There are so many styles nowadays that are retro its very hard to claim anything original. I think this chick is just pissed that their bags are selling better and cheaper! Ha!
