A writer for the New York Times recently reviewed the Kardashian's DASH boutique and he didn't hold back.
After visiting 119 Spring St with his friends, Jon Caramanica had this to say about the sister's cash cow:
On the clothes:
"Dash is a fashion desert, just oodles of drapey cowl necks and embellished cap sleeves and synthetic fibers.
Clothes are essentially split into two categories of fit: vacuum-sealed and hot-air balloon. Fleur tried on an animal print dress with a shirred effect ($308), pairing it with a Eugenia Kim ushanka without flaps, made of coyote ($430). You could wear this look, in the same way you could hire an enthusiastic 5-year-old as your stylist."
"'High-end knockoffs,' scoffed Bolt — which is to say, overpriced knockoffs of already overpriced things. A long-sleeved hot pink velvet minidress by Backstage ($176) was a direct Betsey Johnson rip, and one of only a handful of splashes of color in the store.
On his overall review:
"We had to concur: As in most theme parks, there wasn’t anything worth carrying away but memories."
It may be a harsh review, but we can't say we're surprised by any of his comments.
