“I am honored to announce that @SKIMS is designing the official team USA undergarments, pajamas and lounge wear for the athletes this year in Tokyo and the same pieces will be available in a capsule collection at SKIMS.COM,” the 40-year-old reality star captioned her tweet.
She posted photos of Team USA competitors Alex Morgan, A’ja Wilson, Scout Bassett, Delilah Muhammad, and Haley Anderson, as well as an early glimpse at the collection.
From tank tops with “TEAM USA” printed on them to sports bras with the American flag and Olympics emblem to Cotton Rib Boxers, the collection is as comfortable and cosy as it is stylish.
Kim announced the partnership on social media and shared that the Games are special to her since her stepdad, Caitlyn Jenner, was a gold medal-winner. She remembered attending Olympic trials and track events as a child.
“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. 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 wrote via Instagram.
