Today’s the day when one of the most anticipated High Street collaborations ever arrives in stores. The Kardashian collection, designed by Kim, Khloe and Kourtney, is now available from selected Dorothy Perkins stores and online. I must admit that I am really excited about this collection. The Kardashian sisters are known for their deeply glamorous appearance, with Kim in particular feted as a modern-day goddess of beauty. But what is also interesting about these girls is that they encompass a whole range of body types.
Kim is, of course, petite in statue and curvy in body, with the ultimate derriere. Khloe is gorgeously curvy and 5ft 10 inches tall, meaning she has to combat issues of height as well as those curves. Finally, the love Kourtney is like a tiny doll of a girl, which brings its own problems, as many of my 5ft4 and under friends constantly remind me. So we have three beautiful women who have stunning figures that are not average height, size 10. Would this lead to a collection that would be friendly to lots of different body types?
Well, there is a lot of bodycon, curve enhancing dresses that might not appeal to everyone, but come in a fabulous range of colours and include gold and silver versions that should be really popular in the run up to the festive season. What I personally think works very well are the stunning range of floaty blouses that would look brilliant dressed down with skinny jeans, or vamped up with a pencil skirt. And the accessories are highly covetable. I can see those sequinned clutch and shoulder bags at every Christmas party this season.
Here are some of my key picks from the first collection.
