After months of wearing nothing but Demna designs and appearing in Balenciaga’s Spring 2022 campaign, Kim Kardashian looks set to enter the next phase of her style evolution. Arriving in Milan this morning just as the city’s fashion week festivities got underway, Kardashian wore a piece that reflected several of the key trends of the moment. Wearing a custom caramel nappa leather jumpsuit from Prada, the reality TV star immediately caught the attention of the paparazzi. Kardashian caused a stir by shielding her eyes from flashes with a pair of the brand’s sunglasses and adding some sexiness to the look by letting her Prada nylon bra peek out from under her suit.
Hotsuits are having a moment on the slopes right now. A staple of Prada’s Fall 2022 menswear show in January, it featured prominently in the collection, and the versions worn by male models Hamaam Pelewura and Yoesry Detre directly match Kardashian’s outfit. Baggy with snap closures and elastic detailing at each cuff, it’s reminiscent of the vintage uniforms made famous by brands like Carhartt and Dickies. Keeping the top open to the waist instantly changed the tone of the look, but the changes Kardashian and stylist Dani Levi made didn’t detract from the workwear vibe.
