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 ...

Yep I said that    

Every time I see sites say the Kardashian's design what ever I laugh they don't have an original thought between them. Kim the ho claimed she designed bikini's they were all rips offs from the 1970's.

TMZ....the usage of "hocking" was incorrect. Maybe "peddling" or "selling", but Sears is not "hocking" the purses. DUH!

The expensive $60...0 handbags and shoes filter down to the masses priced at under $100 with enough changes the manufactures can get away with it. Just another cheap copy of a designer bag. Would not have gotten any attention if it didn't have the Kardashian name on it.

ha!    

I cannot believe so many people are voting yes..I don't see it as a knock off at all it looks different in so many ways ex: the height, the zippers, the handle.. its just completely different 82% of these voters do not pay attention to details and when it comes down to it details matter

Monica needs to be glad that they copied the purse.To me they did a improvement on it.Also,they're selling it cheaper than that $60...0 mess

Sears isnt pawning the bags, they are HAWKING them. Obviously, no one at TMZ monitors these comments because someone else made this point earlier and the correction hasnt been made.

Its a frickin purse and i've seen ones similar at places like forever 21 being sold for like 20 bucks. so the lady needs to sue all the people who have similar bags as well.

And the Botkier bag is a knock-off of the Balenciaga bag.

Gucci, Michael Kors, Marc Jacobs and Dooney & Burke have the exact design of the Louis Vuitton Speedy bag.
