Kim Kardashian had a pair of sunglasses from her debut collection made in a smaller size for her daughter North West so the youngster wouldn’t steal hers.

Last month (Apr19), the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star announced she had teamed up with eyewear brand Carolina Lemke on an initial collection of seven styles.

Taking to Instagram on Thursday, Kim shared a sweet snap of her daughter in a pair of glasses and revealed she designed some shades specifically for the five-year-old.

“I made her these kid size @carolinalemkeberlin sunglasses because I really wouldn’t share mine lol,” the 38-year-old quipped. “I love my fashionista Northie so much!”

The designer, who also founded the successful KKW Beauty and KKW Fragrance lines, went on to share the extent of North’s love of fashion, admitting that she’ll often find her trying on her clothes.

“I didn’t think my daughters love for my clothes and jewellery would happen so soon,” the reality star confessed. “I’ll literally be working and come home to find North dressed up in all of my things.”

Last month, Heat magazine reported the youngster was set to follow in the footsteps of her father and Yeezy founder Kanye West, 41, with the release of her debut clothing line.

North looks set to curate the collection, which sources claim will be titled Sunday Best, and is said to have enlisted her six-year-old cousin Penelope Disick to offer a helping hand.

The collection will reportedly be inspired by Kanye’s Los Angeles-based church services, dubbed Sunday Service, which he took to Coachella last month.

Kim Kardashian has admitted that she and her sister Khloe Kardashian once stole a pair of Dior sunglasses while on vacation in Hawaii.

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star recalled the escapade during an interview with Bustle, and claimed that the pair were in an empty Dior store when Khloe first spotted the pair of rimless glasses.

Detailing the “really funny” story, the 38-year-old confessed that her sister picked up the glasses and the pair walked out of the empty store with the coveted eyewear.

“We were in Hawaii and there was this Christian Dior store and no one (was working) there. Like, it was (in) the wild… just an empty store,” the star laughed. “Khloe really wanted the Dior sunglasses, so she took them and we walked out.”

While the reality star acknowledged the siblings’ wrongdoing, she continued to gush over the sunglasses, and admitted they are still in her collection.

“These sunglasses were everything,” she enthused. “I still have them to this day and they were so much fun. So cute. That was so funny. I think the (employee) must have gone to the bathroom or been in the back by herself on a Sunday.”

Last week (ends07Apr19), Kim revealed her debut collection of sunglasses, after collaborating on them with eyewear brand Carolina Lemke.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the fashion mogul admitted it was actually her own needs that prompted her to turn her hand to sunglass designing.

“I was really inspired by vintage ‘90s styles. To me, (they’re) classic,” the star reflected. “And definitely the beaches all around the world and seeing all of these bikini moments I want to have and I don’t have the perfect sunglasses to go with them.”

Kim Kardashian: ‘I needed a pair of sunglasses for every bikini moment’

Kim Kardashian was inspired to create her own collection of sunglasses because she couldn’t find the right shades to go with every one of her numerous bikinis.

The reality star has teamed up with eyewear brand Carolina Lemke on an initial collection of seven styles, including oversized visors and slim, skinny numbers, and debuted the range on Tuesday (03Apr19).

Kim opened up about the inspiration for the creations in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, and admitted it was actually her own needs that prompted her to turn her hand to sunglass designing.

“I was really inspired by vintage ‘90s styles, like the black ones my mom was wearing walking out. To me, that’s a classic,” the 38-year-old reflected. “And definitely the beaches all around the world and seeing all of these bikini moments I want to have and I don’t have the perfect sunglasses to go with them.”

Kim was determined to produce styles that were different from what other brands were doing with the new range. And while she designed around 20 styles in total, she revealed that “big black sunglasses” are her go-to.

“I think everyone needs a big pair of glasses at some point because, if I’m just running out the door and have no make-up on and look like s**t, I just put on a good pair of glasses and I feel at least a little bit more in my comfort zone.

“You can’t go wrong with a pair of big black sunglasses.”

The beauty mogul, who runs the successful KKW Beauty and KKW Fragrance empires, also said that she designed one particular pair with sister Kourtney Kardashian in mind.

“There’s a round pair,” she told the publication. “I know Kourtney loves round and I don’t wear round as much, but I thought it would look really cute on her, so I did that one specifically for Kourtney.”

The Kim Kardashian West Collection for Carolina Lemke is available online now.

Kim Kardashian has unveiled an affordable line of sunglasses as part of her first campaign with eyewear brand Lemke.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star is currently promoting the Kim Kardashian West Collection for Carolina Lemke, insisting the brand partnership gives her the chance to make eyewear accessible to fans who are unable to afford high end items.

“It’s a little crazy how expensive designer sunglasses can get,” Kardashian tells Vogue. “Especially if you lose your sunglasses a lot, or if you tend to break them or scratch them. I felt like the quality of these sunglasses was so high-level, and the price point was really reasonable, and I really liked how open they were to different design ideas. We have such a range, from big shield glasses to more sporty glasses and 90s shapes. It was a really fun process for me.”

The pairing, which marks the Israeli label’s initial expansion to global markets, began when the brunette beauty met Carolina Lemke through friends Bar Refaeli and jeweller Lorraine Schwartz.

“We were all having dinner one night and met some of the owners, and it was just so organic,” Kim adds. “We were talking about how they should launch in the U.S., because they hadn’t done that yet, and we all loved the idea (of a collaboration), so it just magically came together.”

News of the venture was first announced in September (18), when Refaeli, who also represents the label, shared the news on Instagram.

“Friends and now partners!,” the model wrote beneath a picture of herself and Kim on Instagram. “Kim Kardashian joined my Carolina Lemke Berlin family. Welcome my love.”

The line will be released over the coming months.
