Kim Kardashian of Skims and Fendi’s Kim Jones officially announced their collaboration on Monday, Oct. 25. The collection, which has officially debuted on fendiskims.com, focuses on fit and fabrication, including pieces across the shapewear, hosiery, beachwear, RTW, and accessory categories. The designer duo tapped famed photographer Steven Meisel to capture a campaign with models Precious Lee, Jessie Li, Tianna St. Louis, Grace Valentine, and of course, Kim herself. In a press release, Jones told the story about how the idea came about.
“My team and I were sitting around a table at the studio in Rome. Suddenly, all the women went silent and started looking at their phones. I didn’t know what was going on, but they were waiting for the launch of the new SKIMS collection. It was then that I thought: let’s do something together,” he said. As longtime friends and lovers of quality and luxury, Jones and Kardashian got to work on a colorful line inspired by archival sketches of Karl Lagerfeld’s for Fendi in 1979. There are bags, shoes, twisted tube tops, pop colors, and tight sashes, along with a hybrid Fendi x Skims logo plastered across jersey and knitwear.
“My FENDI is about creating something for every woman, every different shape — and that’s something at the heart of SKIMS too,” Jones said in the release. “Kim Kardashian West is doing a lot to celebrate inclusivity — including her admirable work with social justice in America — and as a hard-working woman with a family, she is constantly striving to do her best. These values are something to celebrate.”
