Kendall & Kylie Jenner Are Starting Their Own Juniors Line!

kendall-kylie-jenner-starting-fashion-line-in-canada1.jpg

It was only a matter of time!

Momager Kris Jenner has found a way for Kendall and Kylie to keep up with their Kardashian sisters by starting their very own clothing line!

Produced by Canada's Majestic Mills, the juniors line will include tees, pants, shorts, and accessories and is expected to launch sometime in spring.

We're not sure what it will be called, but we're guessing it will play on the "K"s in their first names, rather than Jenner. You know, to keep with the whole Kardashian empire.

Perhaps, Kendall & Kylie Kouture? Or Kenlie? KJ²? The krazy possibilities are endless!

Kitson Issues Us An Exclusive Statement On Nicole Richie Lawsuit!

wenn2320622_e.jpg

Kitson has issued CocoPerez an exclusive statement about the lawsuit filed against them by the licensee of Winter Kate, Majestic Mills.

The Los Angeles boutique tells us:

Although Kitson adores Nicole Richie and has helped escalate her career with the support of her book signings, filming of numerous episodes of The Simple Life and promoting her continuously successful jewelry collection by Pascal Mouawad, we feel the launch of her clothing collection, Winter Kate, had a lot of growing pains that often come along with any new designer collection.

We purchased an excess of $250,000 of Winter Kate, which Majestic Mills, the licensee of Winter Kate was happy to receive and we need to return an excess of $200,000 worth of Winter Kate to Majestic Mills. They were written on Kitson Purchase Orders which are stringent in these economic times and are a binding contract. Kitson has to protect itself as clothing manufacturer's goods often come ill-fitted, poor quality, etc.

Our Purchase Orders are like many different department stores that buy substantial orders and are on guaranteed sales. The risk cannot only be on the retailer in these times. The celebrity and the manufacturer must take responsibility in every business transaction they enter into.

Although we have three months of emails going back and forth that the goods are waiting to be shipped back and are sitting in our warehouse, we had no choice but to give Majestic Mills an ultimatum that they were going to be shipped to a women's shelter if they did not pick them up by Friday, August 27th. We think that in these hard economic times, with many people suffering, this was the best solution.

We were happy to pay for goods that were sold, but we wanted the invoices adjusted accordingly to the goods that had been sold.

Also, the Principle in Majestic Mills asked to rent a Hollywood Hills home owned by Kitson for a client of theirs. In lieu of that, Kitson was promised the launch of Richie's Winter Kate clothing line, quid pro quo. A verbal contract holds up in the State of California. Although that never happened as Nicole went around the world promoting the line and never did a personal appearance in her own backyard with a client that supported her throughout her entire career.

Nicole's Manager should have taken a much more aggressive approach with her clothing line as he lives in L.A. and the line is in six of our stores. Today, you just don't accept an order and turn a blind eye. The Manager of Nicole Richie stated, "well why don't you just ship back the goods?" Well we need a Return Authorization in the garment industry so that when goods are returned to a manufacturer's warehouse, the receiver understands why goods are being returned; this is standard in the industry and they did not provide this.

Celebrity lines are a tough sell, but there can always be a successful outcome, such as House of Harlow Jewelry Collection by Pascal Mouawad. Kitson is a huge fan and supporter of Nicole Richie and all her creative endeavors and we hope we can continue to work together to promote many of her product launches to her wide fan base, who are also customers of Kitson.

And there you have it.

Kitson Sued By Winter Kate!

wenn2743991_e.jpg

Majestic Mills, the company that owns Nicole Richie's Winter Kate, has filed a lawsuit against popular El Lay boutique Kitson for unpaid merchandise.

The company claims Kitson purchased almost $240,000 of Winter Kate clothing to sell, but have failed to pay them for it.

MM also mentions the store agreed to remit payment within 30 days of receiving an invoice, which they obviously haven't done considering its been months.

However, Kitson says Majestic Mills hasn't exactly kept up their half of the agreement either.

The boutique slammed the company saying:

"We ordered goods based on the launch and personal appearance by Nicole Richie for Winter Kate, produced by Majestic Mills. They not only failed to provide the launch and personal appearance by Nicole Richie, they shipped inferior goods, wrong sizes and the shipments were late.

Kitson Japan received another stores' shipment after they paid up-front for the garments. To add insult to injury other retailers received goods before us. For the last three months we have been trying to return well over $200K of unsold goods. We gave them an ultimatum that if the goods were not picked up by Friday, we were going to donate them to a women's shelter.

They told us this was not good for the brand but we think someone should benefit from their failure to fulfill their promises.

The goods were on guaranteed sales, so we could always send back what we could not sell."

Ouch.

Majestic Mills wants Kitson to fork over the $239,437 on top of interest.
