Kim Kardashian’s Skims Teams Up With Fendi For New Capsule Collection
Kim Kardashian’s Skims is partnering with the house of Fendi for its latest capsule collection.
The billionaire shared the official partnership through a series of photos on Instagram, featuring sheer Fendi logo stockings along with a bra made of the same material.
In addition to the sheer hosiery, the Skim’s x Fendi collection is expected to include ready-to-wear underwear, tops, Roman-inspired bonded leather dresses, bodysuits, leggings, bold recycled nylon sportswear and puffer jackets, all ranging from $950 to $2,950.
“The innovation in fabrics and fit typical to Skims paired with the luxury and quality of Fendi may feel unexpected to some people, but the similarities between our creative vision and goals are so closely aligned,” said Kardashian.
“It’s that tension that excites me.”
To bring the collection to life, Kardashian teamed up with Kim Jones, the womenswear artistic director at Fendi. Together, the duo worked to create designs that merged the aesthetics of the two brands.
According to WSJ, Kardashian originally sent Jones various Skims products and discussed the potential collection back in December 2020. The two then later met for a secret 10-hour fitting in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
The capsule takes inspiration from an archival Fendi collection, which was first presented by Karl Lagerfeld, in addition to sketches from 1979, which focused on “twisted tube tops, pop colors and tight sashes.”
Fendi x Skims is set to drop on November 9, 2021, at 9 a.m. EST and will be exclusively available on fendiskims.com and at select Fendi stores and retailers globally.
