Just one month on from Kim Jones and Donatella Versace’s “job swap” – which resulted in the star-studded, monogram-tastic “Fendace” runway show at Milan Fashion Week – Fendi’s artistic director has joined forces with fashion’s other Kim, shapewear queen Ms Kardashian West, on a new power collab.
Rumors of the partnership had been floating in fashion circles, and on October 25, friends Jones and Kardashian West confirmed on Instagram that they have indeed collaborated on a limited-edition capsule.
According to the two Kims, the project “unites the luxury of Fendi with the innovation of Skims”, and as is now customary with her Skims drops, Kardashian has modeled the pieces herself. In one campaign shot, captured by Steven Meisel, Kim is joined by Precious Lee, Tianna St Louis, Jessie Li, and Grace Valentine, all of whom are dressed in zingy purple dresses, separates, leggings and gloves.
More shots of Kardashian West find her in tights scattered with Fendi’s Zucca emblem and the Skims logo, a matching bralette and Jones’s cult F-heeled shoes; or a sculpting khaki bodysuit worn under a monogrammed puffer.
Fendi x Skims launches November 2 with a pop-up at The Dubai Mall’s Fashion Catwalk rotunda, as well as in select stores in the region. Also make a note of November 9, when the collection will drop on new dedicated website Fendiskims.com. Visit now to add yourself to the mailing list.
