With no concern, Kim Kardashian has been making some somewhat daring (and slightly freaky) fashion possibilities of late. She was in no way specifically dull with alternatives like her revealing/gravity-defying dress and the head-to-toe leather-based bodysuits and fetish masks, and now she has cooked up another wild new pattern by means of her SKIMS brand, but it’s heading to be a tough no for me: swim gloves.
Of course, these are known as “swim gloves.” The Hulu star is advertising these nylon/spandex gloves 1 can (theoretically) put on at the seashore in seven distinctive colors for $48 bucks a pop on SKIMS (opens in new tab). Test out the taffy pink ones beneath, which are eerily reminiscent of Kim Kardashian’s jaw-dropping SNL monologue outfit:
The function of these underwater ballroom equipment, you could check with? Perfectly, just that, apparently: accessorizing. The description of the product on the web-site indicates that they will “instantly elevate your swim seem.” It also claims that wearers will make a “sexy splash.”
Let’s pause there, for the reason that there’s no way that a reverse farmer’s tan can possibly make a “sexy splash.” I imply, at least talking for myself, that is what is bound to occur to moi if I preferred to spearhead this new craze at my area pool or beach front haunt. And just as an instance, it is not like we’re viewing Kim Kardashian out vacationing with Pete Davidson putting on her product, possibly, is she? I rest my situation.
Alas, although, rule-breaking style is what Kim Kardashian is right after, and why she even took property the Trend Icon Award at the 2022 People’s Option Awards. She’s been pushing the envelope with her personal style in current months, to include things like layering distinct designer names and showcasing what can only be explained as shoe tights. Some say it is the 41-calendar year-old’s way of rejecting her old Kanye West influences on her wardrobe right after their split, which she even admitted was the situation in Time 1 of The Kardashians. But I say that the billionaire elite can hold their swim gloves and shoe tights (along with the uncomfortable summer season tan strains they’ll produce).
Nonetheless we have to hand it to the Television set character for her business savvy. At the time of writing, the SKIMS swim gloves are basically sold out in all sizes for 4 of the alternative colours. So definitely, a person (who is not me) is purchasing what this development is providing. In addition, Kim Kardashian is generating other moves, this sort of as updating the style and design of her signature bodysuit collection (courtesy of Khloe Kardashian’s issues) and rebranding her skincare line. (The latter has now been hit with a trademark infringement lawsuit.)
I’ll be retaining an eye out to see when Kim Kardashian wears the swims gloves on Period 2 of The Kardashian – which premieres on September 22 for Hulu subscribers. But until finally then, thank god for bronzer.
