The Kardashians Threatened

They're Old Bags!

8/16/2011 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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 ...

The Trigger bag put Monica Botkier on the map about 5 years ago. The Kardashian bag IS a blatant rip-off no doubt. Handbag lover*****E fake bags. This is an ugly fake plastic piece of overpriced crap and it does not surprise me it has those whore pit vipers name on it! The fact that this family is famous and rich because Kim K let Ray J pee all over her on video is disgusting and no one should buy their junk. Oh and the people who say the Trigger is a copy of the LeDix - put them side by side - only the two slanted zippers are the same! Botkier did not copy Bal. or Prada. I agree there is a lot of "borrowing" of designs in fashion now, but this Kardash piece is blatant.

The black one is nice, but don't like the strings. The other looks like a duffel bag trying to hard.

If you would look at purses in general a lot of them look so similiar. And if you pay attention to details on these two purses they are not totally alike yes there may be similarities but come on who the hell is trying to benefit from this.

I dont think it looks really the same...and the difference in price will determine the customer.a person buying the 600.00 purse isnt looking at the faux kardashian , its stupid of the designer to have them pull it they all copy form eachother

Kim is such an airhead she has no original though. These celebrity whores are only good for bedding every NFL, Laker, BMW within 100 yards. Maybe Kris should have seen her disgusting video with RJ before he married this classless ho. The Kardashians collection looks like hooker clothes & these idiots need to go away they are beyond scanks
