Drawing upon sketches from an archival FENDI collection first presented by Karl Lagerfeld in 1979 which placed a focal point on twisted tube tops, pop colours and tight sashes, FENDI x SKIMS combines the focus on fit and form SKIMS is known for, transporting into both the past and present of the FENDI universe.
“The idea for the collaboration came about when my team and I were sitting around a table at the studio in Rome,” explains Kim Jones. “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.”
Both FENDI and SKIMS have a cultural power very different from each other, but equally as strong,” said Kim Kardashian West. “We share a desire to push boundaries, think differently and challenge convention which is why we found so much common ground collaborating on this collection together.”
