After months of wearing nothing but Demna creations and appearing in Balenciaga’s spring 2022 campaign, Kim Kardashian appears ready to enter the next phase of her style evolution. Arriving in Milan just as the city’s fashion week festivities kicked off, Kardashian wore a piece that reflected several of the moment’s key trends. Dressed in a custom, caramel-colored nappa leather boiler suit from Prada, the reality star immediately captured the attention of the paparazzi. Kardashian made a splash by shielding her eyes from the flashbulbs with a pair of the brand’s sunglasses and adding a bit of sexiness to the look by letting her nylon Prada bra peek out from beneath her suit.
Boiler suits are currently experiencing a moment on the runways. One of the essential elements of Prada’s fall 2022 menswear show back in January, it featured prominently within the collection, and the versions worn by male models Hamaam Pelewura and Yoesry Detre correspond directly with Kardashian’s outfit. Baggy with snap closures and elasticized detailing at each wrist, it called to mind the vintage uniforms made famous by brands like Carhartt and Dickies. Keeping the top opened to the waist instantly changed the tone of the look, but the changes made by Kardashian and stylist Dani Levi didn’t detract from the workwear vibe.
Kardashian’s presence in Europe during the collections could mean that she’ll take in some of the season’s key shows, and Prada seems like a safe bet. Hours after her boiler suit moment, she showed up at the Fondazione Prada wearing black leather from head to toe. Most celebrities have mastered the art of making an entrance, but KKW rolled into town looking ready to take her place in the front row. Even if she doesn’t, she’s already managed to rack up some street style points thanks to those multiple outfit changes.
