Khy is koming
Reality starlet turned billionaire mogul Kylie Jenner has teased the launch of Khy with a new Instagram account and website. Sharing a mysterious image of the back of an oversized belted leather coat, the mom-of-two prompted her 399 million followers to sign up for information about a forthcoming launch. The 26-year-old was rumored to be starting a fashion line with powerhouse couple Emma and Jens Grede, who are behind Khloe and Kim Kardashian’s respective ventures Good American and Skims (Emma Grede is also a partner on Kris Jenner’s home brand, Safely). While early reports that the business would mimic a Shein or similar fast fashion model, insiders told Page Six that the brand will instead be luxury-focused. It’s worth noting that Jenner sold 51% of her cosmetics and skincare company Kylie Cosmetics, famous for its viral lip kits, to Coty for $600 million back in 2019. In the first hour since sharing the outfit post in the same coat to her own feed, the image racked up over one million likes.
