Kylie and Kendall Jenner launch new collection with Steve Madden
Kylie and Kendall Jenner are slated to launch their new shoe and handbag collection for Madden Girl this weekend.
Shoe mogul Steve Madden is also scheduled to be on hand for the launch from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at Nordstrom at the Americana at Brand -- but he plans to keep a low-profile while the spotlight is on the girls, organizers say.
The shoes have a California-girl-meets-high-fashion feel -- not a surprise from these two Golden State teens whose older sisters are the Kardashian sisters. And Kendall has just returned from walking the runways at Marc Jacobs’ New York Fashion Week show and Gile Deacon’s London Fashion Week production.
The shoes in the collection include flat thong-style sandals, platforms, gladiators and cage heels. Prices range from about $49 to $79.
The first 300 people in line at the launch will receive autographed photos of Kylie and Kendall (one per customer, while supplies last) and the store is offering a free gift with any Kendall & Kylie for Madden Girl purchase.
The Americana at Brand is at 889 Americana Way, Glendale.
Del Amo Fashion Center plans to host a free health and safety festival from 10:20 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Saturday in the center’s outdoor lifestyle wing.

Partners in the event include the California Highway Patrol, South Bay American Red Cross, American Red Cross of Greater Los Angeles, LAC + USC Healthcare Network, Transportation Security Administration and Kids Are First. The mall is at 3525 W. Carson St., Torrance.
