Are the Kardashians Karl Lagerfeld Kopy Kats?

They’re a family of merchandising masters, but the Kardashians may have been a bit too obvious when they snagged inspiration from Karl Lagerfeld for their Kardashian Kollection runway presentation for Sydney Fashion Week.
Kourtney and Kim Kardashian both posted photos online from their setup, said to have an “international theme,” and some fashion insiders are calling foul.
Lagerfeld originally used the same “global” vibe for Chanel’s Fall 2013 runway show, and the Kollection’s motif is almost too similar to Karl’s.
Earlier this year, Lagerfeld narrowly avoided insulting the E! reality television family when he was asked if he was bothered by the use of his handbags by the Kardashians.
He explained, “It’s very pretentious to say ‘I don’t want to see this on that person, etc.’ Everybody is allowed to buy it, to enjoy it. I’m not there as a fashion judge, I’m there as a designer.”
