So, Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian have had their own “fashion” line – called the Kardashian Kollection – that’s been exclusively sold at Sears for years now. They’re fortunate they even got Sears, to be honest – their shit should be relegated to Kohl’s at best, so they should count their lucky stars an actual department stores like Sears wanted their shitty clothes and lingerie. However, now it seems like the girls are getting a bit too big for their britches, so to speak, as they think they deserve WAY better than Sears and are now setting their sights higher, hoping to get the Kardashian Kollection into a bigger, classier retailer.
The Kardashians and Sears struck a big deal back in 2011 for the Kardashian Kollection, which features all sorts of apparel and jewelry.
By all accounts, the venture was successful. The best evidence we could find … in 2013 the Kardashian fashion empire raked in $600 million and the family got a $30 million cut.
We’ve learned the deal ended earlier this year and the store has been selling off the remaining items, and recently the store has been pulling the items from the shelves.
Sears tells TMZ the parting of ways was mutual, but our Kardashian sources say the family felt Sears wasn’t stable, having closed over 200 stores last year alone and suffering a $159 million loss in the last quarter of 2014.
We’re told the Kardashians have made a new deal with a major retailer and they will announce the partnership soon.
Not like these assholes need to be any richer than they already are, but I do have to say – $30 million cut out of $600 million sales does seem pretty paltry. I know they’ll need to pay the children who make all their junk, the cost of materials, taxes, Sears’ cut, etc, but that’s still a whole lot less than you’d expect them to come out with. I’d expect at least $100 million, but then, I don’t know the business.
Anyhow, I doubt Nordstrom will be picking this shit up. It’s novelty, pure and simple, and most people with any real taste in fashion would be caught dead in their stuff.
