If you’ve ever seen an episode of The Kardashians on Hulu, done a deep dive on Kim Kardashian’s Instagram, or if you’ve glimpsed AD’s 2020 tour of her Axel Vervoodt–designed home, you know that the businesswoman and entertainment personality has a thing for monochrome, particularly of the greige variety. The neutral color has invaded much of Kardashian’s world, from the shared office of her brands Skims and Skkn by Kim to the products themselves, the most devout being her nine stone-toned Skkn by Kim products that feature no distracting informational labels or in-your-face branding.
Less than four months after the launch of the aforementioned skin-care products, Kardashian is set to release yet another collection perfect for her fellow greige disciples: bathroom accessories. The line includes five concrete products—a vanity tray, a round container, a canister, a tissue box, and a waste basket—that will fit right in alongside a collection of Skkn by Kim skin-care products. Although her meticulous minimalist living space may not be accomplishable for most, these designs offer the ability to create a similarly calm and clean space at home. Some may associate luxury with frilliness and ornamentation, but as Kardashian continues to prove, it’s just as much about dependability and tranquility.
Below we discuss the influence her home has on her work, what makes concrete so alluring, and the process of developing her new home accessories, which will be available for purchase on October 6 at 9AM PST / 12PM EST directly from Skkn by Kim.
Architectural Digest: I love the consistency between your home design, the Skkn product design, and now these Skkn home accessories. What attracts you to concrete?
Kim Kardashian: Thank you! I love concrete and gray tones, it feels really zen to me. When I was designing the packaging for my Skkn by Kim skin-care line, I wanted the packaging to look really good in my own home. All my inspiration was concrete sculpture and varying shades of stone. For these new home accessories, I wanted to make sure they really complemented the skin-care line, and were designed to display my products and elevate any home with modern, minimalistic elegance.
