Kim Kardashian swaps her Balenciaga for Prada
Kim Kardashian is hanging up her Balenciaga suit in favor of something a little more Italian: Prada.
The influencer seems to be entering a new style era, judging by her recent outing at Milan Fashion Week. In a plot none of us saw coming, Kardashian sat front row at Prada’s Fall ’22 show wearing a jumpsuit and coat from the house’s latest menswear collection. .
It wasn’t a one-off style shakeup – Kardashian continued her pre- and post-show streak, stepping out in a second Prada jumpsuit and a pair of the brand’s leather gloves, complete with a built-in zippered clutch.
Until this week, Kardashian would have died only in Balenciaga.
The reality TV star skillfully transformed her Saturday Night Live concert in a retrospective of recent creations by Demna Gvasalia. She even wore Balenciaga from head to toe to announce her passing of the baby bar exam. And don’t forget his recent campaign for the French house, photographed by Stef Mitchell.
But following her very public divorce from Kanye West, Kardashian appears to be trading in some of her style basics for new looks.
A former YEEZY purist, she posted a selfie in a pair of Nike Air Max 95s, leading fans to wonder if she’d dropped her horde of Boosts and Foam Runners.
And, while it looks like Kardashian has saved some of her Balenciaga favorites (i.e. that shiny silver coat, which she wore on a date with Pete Davidson before Valentine’s Day), it seems to diversify.
Some of the brands she has recently worn: Dingyun Zhang for Moncler, Rick Owens, Loewe.
Like many female celebrities, Kimberley is a master of self-reinvention, providing audiences with a virtually endless stream of storylines. Her next chapter, it seems, won’t bear any traces of Ye — meaning she’s set her sights on Prada, a label Ye hasn’t co-opted (not yet, at least).
