The Kim Kardashian-co-founded shapewear brand Skims knows no apparent bounds. Not only is the range growing in global devotees, it was recently named the the official underwear partner for the NBA, WNBA, and USA Basketball, and released a collection in collaboration with Fendi.
Lauded for its product range’s body smoothing and enhancing properties, Skims is now venturing into the body jewellery category, courtesy of a collaboration with Swarovski. The highly anticipated collaboration, known as Swarovski x Skims, is set to launch on November 7 at Swarovski’s Westfield Sydney boutique and through Skims’ online platform.
“It’s been a dream since I joined Swarovski to create a first-ever collaboration with SKIMS that furthers the art of self-expression,” says Giovanna Engelbert, the creative director of Swarovski.
“The pieces are so dreamy,” says Kardashian (who is also Skims’ creative director), “and we loved integrating the iconic crystal cuts into my favourite SKIMS pieces.”
The collection features crystal body jewellery and size-inclusive pieces designed to flatter the feminine silhouette. Inspired by Swarovski’s Millenia jewellery collection, these items can be layered over or under garments and paired with matching chokers, necklaces, and bracelets for a show-stopping impact.
In addition to the crystal body jewellery, the collection offers a range of ready-to-wear items, including crystallised intimates, bodysuits, and dresses. These pieces are designed to shine with the brilliance of Swarovski crystals, all while maintaining a focus on empowerment, comfort, and versatility.
The collaboration was unveiled through a photoshoot starring Kardashian, captured by renowned photographer Mert Alas. The images capture the essence of Swarovski x Skims, celebrating individual confidence and representation while exuding artistry and glamour.
