Ch-ch-check ’em out for your self (under):
Her new advert marketing campaign launched simply in time to sync up with Sunday night time’s episode of Conserving Up with the Kardashians, which documented the rebranding technique of her firm. As you’ll possible recall, the model was initially referred to as Kimono, which sparked MAJOR pushback from critics. She shared:
“My intention wasn’t ever to offend anybody. Foolishly and ignorantly, we never thought that it would be a problem.”
However it was a letter from Daisaku Kadokawa, the mayor of Kyoto, Japan, which helped her take the state of affairs “really seriously” and in the end change the title:
“He was very thoughtful and very kindly explaining to me the meaning of kimono and why that’s so important to their culture. Reading that letter, I felt an understanding. I definitely did not want to disrespect a culture. That’s not what the brand is even about — it’s about inclusivity, it’s about comfort, it’s not about making people uncomfortable.”
Following backlash after the launch, the mogul issued a public apology assertion:
“When I announced the name of my shapewear line, I did so with the best intentions in mind. My brands and products are built with inclusivity and diversity at their core and after careful thought and consideration, I will be launching my Solutionwear brand under a new name. I will be in touch soon. Thank you for your understanding and support always.”
Mrs. West admitted to KUWTK cameras it was “frustrating” as soon as controversy started to pour in that she and her workforce didn’t understand the potential implications of cultural appropriation forward of time, however shortly wished to make issues proper:
“I just feel kind of dumb. Like, why didn’t we think about this? It sucks that it’s so public and that everyone can see the mistakes of the brand as they’re live, but I’ve got to just calm down. Everything happens for a reason.”
After a little bit of teamwork and head-scratching, the brand new title was lastly determined upon:
“I need a name that really does speak to me the way that Kimono did. [SKIMS] is easy, it works, it flows. I just know that this is the right thing to do.”
