The campaign shot by Donna Trope, shows the 47-year-old model rocking some of SKIMS’ best-selling designs, including the Cotton Rib Bralette and Brief as well as the Fits Everybody Scoop Neck bra.

Earlier this month, it was revealed that SKIMS is set to design undergarments, pyjamas and loungewear for the athletes of the USA’s Olympics team.
Announcing the collaboration, Kardashian said, “Ever since I was 10 years old, I’ve heard every single detail about the Olympics from my stepdad. As I would watch the athletes compete, I would grow to understand the dedication and honour being a part of the Olympics embodied. I travelled with my stepdad and family to all different cities for the Olympic trials, the Olympics and track meet of @caitlynjenner’s and at every stop, I would buy an Olympic t-shirt as a souvenir.” Five Team USA athletes modelled the official garments in the announcement including basketball player A’ja Wilson, swimmer Haley Anderson and Paralympic sprinter Scout Bassett.
Kardashian launched KKW Beauty in 2018 and Skims in 2019 after the initial brand name Kimono was dropped following accusations of cultural appropriation. The brand sells underwear and loungewear in West’s minimalist style and has proven popular during work-from-home times.
