With the looming second lockdown, it would be fair to say that we'll be spending the foreseeable in our favourite tracksuit bottoms. Even though there was no way of Kim Kardashian knowing this, she has just announced the launch of her first-ever tracksuit line (weird timing, huh).
Cast your mind back to when Kim and Paris were BFFs. Pink Nokias and LV bags aside, there was one thing you could always count on the pair having: Juicy Couture velour tracksuits. They basically invented the trend and in case you hadn't already noticed it's back in a BIG way.
Yep, queen Kim K is now serving us SKIMS Velour and boy are we buzzing. Dropping the exciting news on her Instagram, Kim shared a behind the scenes video of what can only be described as an iconic shoot.
Teaming up with old pal Paris Hilton, the girls are dressed head to toe in velour, posing against a silver Range Rover. Channelling MAJOR 2000s vibes, they've even got the same metallic handbags. The nostalgia is quite frankly, too much.
Kim captioned the video: "Skims Velour @parishilton A year in the making, @SKIMS Velour is my most anticipated launch yet! A reinvention of the iconic 2000s trend, this luxe collection will carry you through Fall - indoors and outside. Dropping on Wednesday, October 21 at 9 AM PT / 12 PM ET in 7 new styles, 4 colours, and sizes XXS - 4X exclusively at SKIMS.COM. Join the waitlist now to receive early access to shop before Velour sells out."
Despite the strange coincidence, Vogue reports that Kim has been working on the new collection for over a year. " I am so excited to share with everyone,” she said. “Velour is one of my favourite collection launches to date! It’s the perfect blend of 2000s nostalgia and present-day loungewear.”
Thankfully, Paris Hilton is on the same page as us, admitting she's “living in sweatsuits right now” and adding that “the Velour collection is perfect for looking hot while being comfy.”
Kim, who has singlehandedly carried the trend from 2000 to 2020 told Vogue, “The iconic velour tracksuits have been a staple in my closet for close to 20 years!” Well, they're about to be a staple in ours, too.
Alongside the standard shapes, SIMS Velour will also offer crop tops, vests and robes, all in Kim's signature muted tones.
We are getting it allllll.
