The collection combines SKIMS ’emphasis on fit and shape, with inspiration drawn from archived sketches dating from a collection presented by Karl Lagerfeld in 1979, in which he explored twist tube tops, pops of color. and tight belts. Fendi x SKIMS features neutral tones, nylon sportswear, bonded leather dresses and of course, contemporary formwear.
“My FENDI is about creating something for every woman, every shape that’s different – and that’s also something at the heart of SKIMS,” says Kim Jones.
The FENDI x SKIMS collection will be launched on November 9, 2021 in Malaysia.
