If you’re in the market for bargain-priced versions of the reality stars’ signature curve-hugging clothes and oversized accessories, Sears’ new line will knock your leopard-print platforms off. Abby Gregory has the scoop.
We’ve reviewed several celebrity-designed collections of late, including Karl Lagerfeld for Macy’s and Jennifer Lopez for Kohl’s. Finally, we have encountered one such collaboration that perfectly aligns with our expectations in terms of style and anticipated aesthetic.
The Kardashian sisters’ line of clothing and accessories for Sears stays true to the clan’s carefully cultivated brand. That is to say, Khloé, Kim, and Kourtney’s new designs include as much glitter and spandex as possible, given their affordable price point.
We stopped by Dallas’ Valley View mall for a first-hand look, and that particular Sears location was fully-stocked with KK goods. Not surprisingly, we first noted many body-conscious dresses and animal prints.
Digging deeper, we were delighted to discover an attractive paillette-drenched cropped jacket ($68.99) and a lace-trimmed skirt ($46.99). These pieces displayed a fashionable feel, and were well-constructed both inside and out. We also must admit falling for the bodacious trio’s sunglasses ($21, all styles). Dark and oversized, we imagine they were designed with prying paparazzi in mind.
On the other hand, don’t bother with any footwear or handbags from the Kardashian Kollection. These shoddy items are marked by fabrication and hardware missteps. The parties we spied on our shopping trip, however, did not seem to share our reservations. Many were particularly excited by the mesh, leopard-printed, and otherwise embellished platform heels ($41.99 and up).
Additional items include cocktail rings, curious-looking belts, and even lingerie. Shop the Kardashian Kollection online and at area Sears locations.
