The Verdict on ‘Kendall+Kylie x The Drop’

When we first heard that Kendall and Kylie Jenner had done a line for Amazon ‘The Drop’, we were pretty excited. Like it or not, these two girls are key members of the most ‘trend setting’ clan in the world. But then… we saw the collection Kendall+Kylie x The Drop and unfortunately our expectations were sorely underwhelmed. The collection was made up of items that you just know these girls would not be seen dead in. Save as to a few social media posts, which we are pretty sure they were contractually obligated to do by Amazon. If you don’t believe us, just take a second and check out some of the items for yourself.

 Kendall+Kylie x The Drop The Devil Is In The Detail

Firstly, don’t be deceived by the post from Kylie… this shirt will most likely not sit on you like that. After all, few women out there can afford to have her proportions (ahem, if you know what we mean).  From the few reviews that have rolled in so far, all is not well with this Turtleneck Bodysuit with Cut Out. Made up of 55% Cotton and 45% Rayon, the prevailing reviews sound like this: ‘Okay but doesn’t look like it does in the photos’, ‘Cheap and flimsy’ and ‘Just alright’. 

One of the things that we did like about this particular piece was its colour palate. Unlike many of the other items in the collection, this is one that is actually on trend for the Autumn/Winter 20/21 colour range.

Similarly, we found this item to be more strange than anything else. Supposedly a ‘Comfortable and cozy cardigan‘ we found that hard to believe considering it does not have one single natural fibre in it’s make up (75% Acrylic, 22% Polyamide, 3% Elastane) which is so unstable that it is listed as being Hand Wash Only and has been reviewed by one shopper as being ‘itchy‘. But that is not where the problems ended for the Cropped Cardigan Sweater sported by Kendall.

Our main issue with this piece lay with the cut itself. A super cropped, gaping cardigan with puff sleeves is going to make most women look like a giant marshmallow unless you are 5’10″/178 cm and wear an XS like Kendall does.

Positives
  • Some pieces are kinda on trend in terms of colour
  • Longer availability time than usual on The Drop

Negatives
  • Very Expensive for poor quality
  • H&M were doing Paper Bag Cut last Winter
  • Tie-Dye was a summer trend 2 years ago
  • Shorts for an Autumn/Winter collection makes no sense
  • Inferior materials, pleather and man made fibres

After taking a really close look at the whole collection, and putting it into context of what you would reasonably expect from two of the women considered to be at the absolute cutting edge of influencer fashion, we were super disappointed by the Kendall + Kylie x The Drop collection. Make no mistake, we totally get why Amazon would be wise to jump on the Kar-Jenner band wagon, but it seems that the opportunity has been squandered in this instance.

Here at the Treasure Cave, all us Treasure Hunters were unanimous in thinking that there are so many other collections on Amazon that were vastly superior to this one and at more or less the same price point. If you are interested in looking further into the variety of fashion collections available on Amazon take a look at Amazon Brand – Daily Ritual, Amazon Brand – find., Amazon Brand – Goodthreads and last but not least the Amazon Essentials store.
