Tatler Hong Kong

Kim Kardashian West


If there’s one thing Kim Kardashian West understand­s, it’s how to make the most of your figure. She is so well known for wearing super-sculpting bodywear that accentuate­s her curves that she designed her own line, Skims, in 2018. The brand has since expanded beyond shapewear and now includes underwear and loungewear. In Asia, Skims is currently available exclusivel­y at Lane Crawford in Hong Kong, Shanghai and Chengdu, while internatio­nal delivery is available on its website. Tatler speaks to Kardashian West about her inspiratio­n.

When did you realise that bodywear and shapewear were important to your style? Shapewear has always been a really important part of styling for me, not only because it helps create a look under clothing, but it also makes me feel confident and comfortabl­e.

Which Skims item do you think everyone should own? Our shapewear is all designed to give you various levels of targeted support, depending on your needs.

For example, our Sculpting Bodysuit cinches your waist, enhances your butt and smooths your curves all in one, so it’s really a hero item for our customers.

For underwear, I can’t live without our Fits Everybody underwear—it’s buttery soft and stretches to twice its size without ever losing shape.

You’ve had a very inspiring year full of change; what lessons have you learnt through the personal challenges that you’ve overcome?

I’ve learnt that I’m so lucky to have an incredible support system that I can lean on when going through challengin­g times—my family and friends are my rocks and they inspire and encourage me so much every day.

Tell us about how your style has evolved over the years—and what style advice you would give your younger self.

I’ve always loved fashion, and when I was younger I really enjoyed experiment­ing with different trends. Looking back at those old ’fit pictures now is so fun.

Through the years, trying new things helped me learn what works best for my body and what I feel most confident wearing—so I wouldn’t change any of it.
