The world of fashion is known for moving at a fast pace, but, a little sneak peek on social media is usually more than enough to be able to keep up with it all. The latest update? Kim Jones and Kardashian are joining forces to introduce an epic line of clothing that weaves Skims innovative and inclusive shape-wear with Fendi’s luxuriously elegant knowledge and savoir-faire.
Announced on Monday, the 41-year-old reality superstar took to social media to reveal this iconic new collab’ between her own landmark and the Italian fashion house. Slated to launch next month on November 9, this unexpected move only comes a couple of weeks after Fendi’s initial partnership with Medusa-inspired label Versace which premiered at Milan’s Fashion Week earlier this October. Rather keen on mending minds together for the sake of culture, the two designer-friends both sat behind the wheel of this unprecedented association that will surely know how to make the internet melt.
“My FENDI is about creating something for every woman, every different shape – and that’s something at the heart of SKIMS too. 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,” said Jones in a statement.
Drawing inspiration from Fendi’s archives, this capsule collection is set to incorporate some of the late Karl Lagerfeld’s sketches from 1979 while featuring several ready-to-wear looks ranging from form-fitting tops, dresses and leggings to puffer jackets and more. Although not much more information has transpired about the line, pieces of the drop will reportedly retail at anywhere from $100 to $4,200 and will be available for sale online and also in select Fendi stores globally.
