Kouture Does NOT Equal Couture

May 17, 2010 • Fashion


One of my biggest pet peeves in this universe is when anyone deems it necessary to use the word "couture" when it clearly does not apply to an item. So, when designers use it all willy-nilly (i.e. when you're shilling your cheap clothing line) is beyond annoying. 

Kimora Lee Simmons is adding a new collection to her designs. Kouture by Kimora is her latest junior line. Retailing between $19.99 and $34.99, the line of rompers, jeans, blazers and cocktail pieces will be an exclusive for Macy's. 

But doesn't Simmons already have two junior lines, you ask? You'd be correct in this assumption but Kimora says there's a difference, big difference! The variation between this line and her others, specifically Baby Phat and Fabulosity, the junior line exclusively for J.C. Penney, is that Kouture is completely trend driven, rather than urban and streetwear related.

Wow,… too bad it still looks exactly like every other thing she's ever thrown out…
