Michael Kors is randomly trending on Twitter because people are fussing over whether the clothing brand is truly luxury.

People were triggered after Twitter user Kyslime shared two photos of a $358 leather satchel by MICHAEL, the brand’s cheaper version of its couture line. “Treat your girl,” Kyslime wrote on Thursday,

treat your girl 💛

The photos initiated some snappy arguments about whether the line is too low-brow and has lost its luster.

Damn! Ppl still buying MK they literally sell that at Ross, Marshall’s and TJ Maxx

Lmao @ the whole Michael Kors thing. It is true that around here it’s seen as this truly “luxurious” bag, when in reality and in comparison to other luxury brands, it’s kind of garbage. I’ve literally seen those bags for $30 at Nordstrom Rack. Plus the monogram is kind of trashy.

Michael Kors cheapened their brand. EVERYBODY wears it now! Girl working at McDonalds….Girl working at the mall….

Allegations that Michael Kors has knocked off fellow designers re-circulated— in September, while sharing his Spring 2019 collection at New York Fashion Week, Kors was accused of copying a Mexican designer’s gray-and-black sweatshirt.

Not everyone is necessarily saying they’re “too rich” for Michael Kors. I think some of us just don’t appreciate his obvious knockoff designs of luxury brands and the quality is not that great and still has the audacity to charge over $300 for stolen designs and cheap quality??🙄

Lovers of the brand said criticism was snobby and hypocritical, because most high-end brands have diffusion lines, such as Marc by Marc Jacobs, Burberry Sport, and Donna Karan’s DKNY.

I don’t understand what’s “cheap” about a $350+ Michael Kors purse, but okay 🙃

God forbid a luxury fashion designer makes his products accessible and attainable to all women. It’s as if Michael Kors actually cares about us.

I forgot how rich everybody is on Twitter lol y’all make so much money that y’all don’t know that Michael Kors has 3 different brands, with 3 different price points….MK is NOT the same as Michael Kors….
