Kim Kardashian’s Skims Made Team USA’s official loungewear for Tokyo Olympics.
The 40-year-old reality TV star and business mogul revealed this on Monday. She said her label would be designing the official undergarments, pajamas and loungewear for Team USA ahead of the Summer Games in Tokyo, Japan.
In a lengthy Instagram post, Kardashian shared that her relationship with stepfather Caitlyn Jenner, a retired Olympic gold medal-winning decathlete, fostered her positive feelings toward the collaboration.
“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 honor being a part of the Olympics embodied,” she wrote.
“I traveled w my stepdad and family to all different cities for the Olympic trials, the Olympics and track meets of @caitlynjenner’s and at every stop I would buy an Olympic t-shirt as a souvenir.”
She went on to say that when she “received the call inviting Skims to be a part of @TeamUSA, every moment I’ve spent admiring the strength and energy of the Olympians from the sidelines came full circle.”
Kardashian also told fans that the garments designed for Team USA, which seems to include underwear, leggings, bike shorts, sports bras, T-shirts and more, will be available in a capsule collection on the brand’s website as of July 12.
In a press release for the collaboration, Skims noted that “all 626 Team USA female athletes will receive the full collection.”
