Kim's Announcement of SKIMS Shapewear
Kim Kardashian has landed on a name for her shapewear collection: SKIMS Solutionwear. After announcing news of the Kimono collection in June, just one week later, the reality star explained that she would change the name after an influx of criticism that she was appropriating Japanese culture. Now, nearly two months later on Aug. 26, Kim announced the new name and an official release date, as well as a thank-you note for her fans.
"My fans and followers are a huge inspiration to me — I'm always listening to their feedback and opinions, and am so grateful they shared their ideas for a new brand name. After much thought and consideration, I'm excited to announce the launch of @SKIMS Solutionwear™ coming September 10," she wrote on Instagram. "I love the idea that the pieces will be the closest thing to someone's skin, skimming with amazingly soft and supportive fabrics which accentuate the best parts of our bodies. Available in sizes XXS - 5XL, SKIMS Solutionwear™ is for every body. SKIMS.COM."
Along with collection's new name, Kim expanded her size line from XXS to 4XL to XXS to 5XL with the latest update. As previously noted, SKIMS will be available in nine shades. Kim told her fans in the initial announcement that despite working on this project for over a year, she's been "passionate about this for 15 years." The line is expected to have a range of styles, including body suits, underwear, and even "the solution short," which was created for dresses and skirts with a slit on one side.
