For the third collection of the five season collaboration between the sisters Kardashian— Khloe, Kim and Kourtney—and Bebe’s fashion we see dresses, shoes and handbags pushed to the front lines. Their palette includes sleek black, earthy tans, soft grays and lighter rose; ribbing, seams and sequins add texture in the pieces. The shoes are the true definition of a stiletto—slim and high—and must be a brave soul since they are not for the faint of heart. The booted stilettos are sleek and simple while the open-toed booties offer more of an edge with their “cage” look.
What works in the line is the use of accents: the one-shoulder “tribal sheath dress” is solid black with tribal print on both sides or the “ribbed body con” dress with bubble ribbing alongside contrasting smooth panels. They take simple numbers and revamp them a bit with sexy, eye catching features.
What lacks are the more laid back and casual numbers like the “cutout box top” and “Dolman cardigan.” The “cheetah sequin hot shorts” and “Quilted Leather Hair Calf Satchel” fall flat, seeming to be cheesy and predictable instead of stunning and sexy.
Currently available on Bebe.com are 25 pieces from shoes to bags, dresses to jackets that range in price from $49 for shirts to a $298 handbag. See the full collection here.
