THE JENNER SISTERS TALK LOS ANGELES LIVING, FIGHTING OVER CLOTHES AND KIMYE.
If you were at Santa Monica beach on a sunny Monday in April you might have noticed two teenagers dressed in bathrobes
flanked by security guards and running away from paparazzi. Out of the ordinary? Not for Kendall and Kylie Jenner.
With 50million Instagram followers between them, a starring role in this generation’s biggest reality TV show and a circle
of celebrity gal pals, Kendall and Kylie are a phenomenon - the buzz they generate follows them wherever they go.
WORDS BY KARLA EVANS
What was the inspiration behind the line?
Kendall: We were thinking about the LA girl, who she is, what she loves to do and what her dream capsule wardrobe would be. There are lots of lighter shades and florals that give that sunshine feel.
What’s your favourite piece from the collection?
Kylie: The grey crew neck sweater that says “When in Doubt, Vacation” That’s our motto!
Kendall: I really like the wide-legged black pants that are see-through. I’d wear them with a knotted up t-shirt and some strappy heels.
What do you think your sisters would wear from the collection?
Kylie: Our family love supporting us and wearing our stuff. Khloe would love the jean shorts.
Kendall: Kourtney would definitely wear our short little black romper.
Kylie: Kim would keep it simple.
Kendall: Yeah, she would keep it pared back with our wide black pants.
Do you fight over clothes?
Kendall: Definitely! It’s much easier for me to steal from Kylie now because I live in my own house so it’s all locked up and I never let her in if I’m not there. But Kylie’s clothes are all at my mom’s house so I can freely walk in at anytime and take whatever I see!
Where would you recommend people visit or hang out in LA?
Kylie: We have really cool amusement parks that I would recommend to anyone visiting. But if you want to stay in the city you have to visit Urth Café for lunch and stay at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
Kendall: We love NOBU in Malibu. It has an amazing ambience and is really chic.
Highlights of 2015 so far?
Kylie: Our sister Kourtney’s new baby Reign.
Kendall: My career. The Chanel show in Austria was pretty special. And baby Reign, of course!
What’s the best thing about being a teenager?
Kylie: I’m not really a normal teenager but I don’t want to get past 18 so I’m trying to enjoy every moment!
Who do you look up to?
Kylie: Fashion-wise Kim and Kanye inspire me so much.
Kendall: Yes, my sisters mostly. It’s crazy that they have all lived out their dreams and to see what they’ve made for themselves, it’s a real inspiration.

The elephant is my
favourite! But my most-used
is the little smirking guy.
The little horn with
the streamers is my favourite.
The party one!
