Only a moron would spend $450 on a Kardashian handbag

Kendall and Kylie Jenner started their “design” career in a humble fashion — by peddling cheap and cheerful threads to teenage fan girls with $39 to burn on a romper.

The scrubby suburban mall was their domain. And what a perfect match it was.

But somehow in between Kendall traveling the world to walk the most illustrious runways and Kylie Snapchatting her ample behind every five minutes, they’ve managed to undertake a more ambitious project called Kendall + Kylie.

Since money and reality television fame can buy you anything that a design degree and talent can’t always achieve, Kendall + Kylie graduated from the food court to Shopbop and Saks with price points topping out at $298 for a dress.

In April, they (or the people their mother hired) told the world that their wares were so high-end and well-crafted that they can charge $450 for a tote. This week, images of the 18-piece collection were released along with more eye-popping price tags including $350 and $450 for understated handbags.

They even had the gall to add a few Fendi bag charm rip-offs named after Kylie’s dogs that go for a whopping $95.

They aren’t motivated by aesthetics or good taste. They are zombies who fell for Kris Jenner’s alchemy.

“A good handbag is functional and easy to use, without compromising the design or overall look. Each design definitely makes its own statement,” Kylie said in a press release.

And that statement is: I have a limited intellectual capacity. And I have crap taste.

Because anyone who drops that kind of cash on a bag “designed” by Kendall + Kylie would probably buy a bag of dog droppings if it came in packaging bearing their name.

They aren’t motivated by aesthetics or good taste. They are zombies who fell for Kris Jenner’s alchemy. And they’ll be carrying around the stigmata of stupidity for all to see.
For that kind of money, one can pick up a beautifully designed bag from Loeffler Randall or throw another hundy on the pile and bam! You got yourself a Mansur Gavriel. The possibilities are endless.

Celebrity designers have been around since the dawn of sweatshops. Some, like the Olsen twins and Victoria Beckham, have been able to effortlessly shift from entertainment to design by diving into their craft. And some know when to admit their audience is Kohl’s not Barneys.

Remember that just because one hangs out with Olivier Rousteing doesn’t mean they are a designer. It means they probably get free clothes from Rousteing and charge suckers $450 for a handbag.
