NEW YORK, New York (The Adobo Chronicles, New York Bureau ) – In order to impress, some people dress up — others dress down. Reality star Kim Kardasian-West chooses to do the latter.
West has been criticized for launching a new line pf shapewear which she is calling kimono.
Kimono is of course the Japanese attire associated with royalty, respect, dignity and cultural tradition, and it is universally recognized as a Japanese symbol, almost like the country’s flag.
It is therefore not surprising that West’scattempt to trademark her kimono has been met with fierce opposition on either side of the Pacific Ocean.
As a protester aptly declared: Kim has undressed the kimono!
