Kendall Jenner Just Wore the Birkin Bag of Leggings
Very little could distract us from the glaring fact that Kendall Jenner wore a black leather blazer at the precipice of July's staggering heat but, it turns out, one other element of her outfit makes that short list. While the elder Jenner sister's leggings might not demand the attention of a flashy designer bag, they're actually as famous and at-home in every top celebrity's closet as a Birkin.
Made by Wardrobe.NYC, a capsule collection concept from the minds of fashion insiders Josh Goot and Christine Centenera, the luxury leggings were launched in tandem with a number of other minimal, essential garments as part of the brand's third release. This 'drop' system eschews the traditional fashion cycle and allows the label to refocus its energy on sustainability and high-level design execution.
If you've ever seen an A-list celebrity look absolutely polished in a pair of leggings, chances are they were from Wardrobe.NYC. Katie Holmes, Gwyneth Paltrow, Gigi Hadid, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and others who have seemingly never had an off day in their dressed-up lives all keep Wardrobe.NYC in their closets.
Jenner's particular leggings feature an elevated notch detail at the ankle of each leg. The exact style, like many pieces from the brand's drops, is sold-out everywhere. A similar pair from the brand's Release 01 collection is still available in most sizes at MatchesFashion — though their $390 tag admittedly makes us gulp.
While we may not all have such a high budget for leggings, Jenner's split-hem ones have inspired us to add a similar pair to our own collections that we'll no doubt reach for when we need a comfortable, ultra-polished look. Shop our favorite finds below.
