Your former family members are back in the brand partnership spotlight once again, with the recently-announced collaboration of the Kardashian-Jenner ladies with luxury brand Judith Lieber Couture on a holiday-themed edition of miniaudierés (definition: a women’s fashion accessory, generally considered a jewelry piece intended to substitute for an evening bag. I looked it up on Google).

For years, fans of the reality stars know their love of and obsession with Christmas, so a special collaboration dropped for the holidays makes perfect sense.

The Purpose Of A Partnership

Most brand collaborations aim to engage and excite fans of the brands in play by bringing something of added value to them, be they a limited edition, something collectible, or a unique offer. Brand values define what businesses stand for and how they do what they do, so they’re vitally important when you’re looking for like-minded others to align with. In an article published in The CEO Magazine, brand matchmaking specialist Claudine Harris commented, “Togetherness means being fair and forthright, and looking out for each other’s best interests.”

That is perfectly exemplified in the partnership between Judith Leiber Couture and the KarJenners. Each style offers a behind-the-scenes look into their private collections and personality, featuring an interior autograph from Kris as well as each Kardashian and Jenner sister The family is famous for experimenting with images and mediums: from memes to “Kimojis” to virtual games like Kim K: Hollywood. This has created an economy of images that define the family in ever-changing ways, so it’s fitting that the Kardashians would even accessorize using symbolic objects. And now the longtime love between the Kardashians and Leiber has culminated in an official collaboration just in time for Christmas.

For the foodies in your life, Kourtney’s Lunch Date may be a tasty treat. The crystal clutch features all the dazzling colors of a sushi lunch tray, including a pair of gold chopsticks.
