Kim Kardashian spills on dad’s influence and SKIMS Men in her latest GQ issue
Kim Kardashian’s still got her dad, Robert Kardashian, on her mind, especially after two decades since he passed away.
She recently sat down with her mom and sisters to chat about how his influence is still a big part of her life and work.
Remember that time right after the O.J. Simpson trial when Robert went to see a psychic, thinking it was all nonsense? Turns out, the psychic predicted the Kardashian name would be famous worldwide – a forecast Robert laughed off.
Kim’s SKIMS Empire
Fast forward to today, and Kim’s rocking it with her own business ventures, including SKIMS.
She started SKIMS in 2019, and it’s already a hit, offering everything from shapewear to loungewear. And now, she’s expanding into men’s fashion with SKIMS Men.
It’s already catching the NBA’s attention, with big names like Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Neymar Jr repping the brand. Kim’s idea? Guys need that confidence boost from their clothes just like women do.
The Influence of Robert Kardashian
Kim’s dad wasn’t just a lawyer; he was a style icon in his own right. Kris Jenner, Kim’s mom, remembered how Robert was all about that Gucci life when they started dating.
He was so into it that Gucci’s Beverly Hills store would hit him up whenever they had something new. And Kim? She’s got that same flair for fashion.
Kim also talked about how her dad taught her responsibility early on with contracts.
Like when she got her first car at 16, it came with a bunch of rules bound by a signed contract. She says these lessons from her dad have shaped how she approaches her family and business today.
Physical copies of Kim’s GQ issue are out in US stores. No release dates for South African shelves have been announced as yet.
