Under the direction of Kim Jones and Kim Kardashian West, FENDI and SKIMS debut a collection which unites the aesthetic codes of the respective brands to create a capsule wardrobe for the modern woman. “The idea for the collaboration came about when my team and I were sitting around a table at the studio in Rome,” explains 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,” reflects 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.”

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 colors 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. 

Form-fitting silhouettes materialize in velvet engineered for support, while a gradient series of neutral shades are meticulously crafted into bonded leather dresses that draw upon Roman aesthetics to offer statuesque transformation. Bold colors saturate contemporary beach and shapewear, while a hybrid FENDI x SKIMS logo appears on reversible skin-tight jersey, embossed into knitwear, printed across underwear and hosiery and writ large across recycled nylon sportswear. “The innovation in fabrics and fit typical to SKIMS paired with the luxury and quality of Fendi may feel unexpected to some people, but the similarities between our creative vision and goals are so closely aligned,” notes Kim Kardashian West. “It’s that tension that excites me.” Accessories appear in a complimentary palette: a standout array of brightly colored FENDI icons appear alongside neutral tones, from Peekaboo and FENDI First to the new Baguette Chain and signature Sunshine Shopper in 3D FF logo, available also in their Mini and Nanoversions. For footwear, FENDI debuted a shearling hiking sandal imbued with a distinctly LA energy, alongside an array of new iterations of the FENDI First heel.

The FENDI x SKIMS collection will launch on 9th November 2021 at 6.00 am US – PST time, 9.00 am US – EST time, 3.00 pm Italy time, 9.00 pm Asia-HK time on www.fendiskims.com and be available at select FENDI stores and retailers globally
