It wasn’t too long ago that Kim Kardashian was spotted around the Fendi HQ in Rome sparking talk that she wasn’t just there to take in the scenery. Rumour mills were running on overdrive that the reality TV star turned fashion and beauty mogul was either appearing on Fendi’s next fashion campaign or collaborating on a clothing line. And guess what? She’s doing both. The 41-year-old mother of four is uniting her successful solutions-driven shapewear label Skims with the storied Italian fashion house of Fendi in a collaboration that millennials would term as fire. And the reason that followers of fashion might be tripping is because this collection goes beyond just logo-filled shapewear and hosiery – it’s a collection that finally sees the Skims woman leave the sofa and go on a night on the town. Fendi’s Kim Jones revealed that he has centred on Karl Lagerfeld’s 1979 releases based on “twisted tube tops, pop colours, and tight sashes” as a key inspo for this capsule that also incorporates Skims expertise for form fits and fabrication. Other than the varied skin tone palettes that broke new grounds for Skims when it first entered the undergarment game, this collection will also involve knitwear and bonded leather dresses amongst other hot ticket items. The collection is set to launch on November 9.
