Kylie Jenner is launching her new clothing brand, Khy, tomorrow - but is it going to feature new closet must-have pieces, or is it just another celebrity brand out in the world? Like, has anyone actually ever bought something from Brad Pitt's skincare line? Oh, you didn't even know he had a skincare line? I rest my case.
The youngest Kardashian/Jenner line hasn't even launched yet, and it's already seen some flack and been accused of stealing designs from creative director and stylist Besty Johnson, but then Khy tried to save itself by ignoring that claim and just posted saying they created this line through Kylie Jenner and "special guest collaborators." I'm not super educated on what went down, and I'm not that sure any of us ever will be, so I'm not going to get into it.
From the outside (aka Kylie Jenner's social media posts), I'm seeing a lot of leather. Honestly, I've only seen leather. Faux leather, to be exact. But I've seen a leather mini dress, a leather maxi dress, a leather trench - it's all black faux leather. Basically, so far, Khy is as if the Matrix was a nepo baby. But hey, I'm not necessarily hating because, don't get me wrong - I love a leather moment. Seriously. I think some of the hottest looks come in leather. A low-waisted lace-up leather flare trousers or a leather jacket with silver detailing; leather is so hot and so great, but can you drop an entire line out of it?
Out of the twelve looks in drop one, only three aren't faux leather. Now, I do have to say, the prices are very, very reasonable, which is definitely refreshing to say the least. And the more I look at Khy, the more it grows on me - except for four pieces that I would really never have in my closet, and if I did, they wouldn't be from here. But everything else seems like something that I could maybe wear for a party or a night out, but nothing catches my eye right away and nothing makes me feel like I need it immediately, but there are a few things I would purchase.
There's something about a tight leather dress that is super hot - when done properly. Kylie gets bonus points for making it strapless because it's really hard to make not high-quality leather straps look good. Out of all the pieces in the collection, I would probably wear these two dresses the most. They seem perfect for night events and can styled easily.
These leather pants remind me of the ones Candice Swanepoel wore to that hot people event, and I'm sure they sat in the back of the designer's mind when drafting these up. I personally have a lot of vintage pants that look like this, but if you don't, then I'd say it wouldn't hurt to have at least one pair in your closet, and this one from Khy will be just fine.
As for the mock neck, it's part of the three seamless pieces made: a mock neck, a baby tee, and leggings. The mock neck is the only piece I'd buy on its own. I think the leggings and the baby tee have to be worn together in order to look because I wouldn't wear them on their own, so I decided I just would rather not purchase them at all. However, a tight black long sleeve is always. a great piece for fall and winter, whether you layer with it or wear it on its own. And I love the long sleeves and the "mock" neck. The one part that rubs me the wrong way is the finger holes. I'm not really a fan of those, but if you are, then this really is the top for you.
