The Kardashian-Jenners know how to break the internet, so it’s no surprise social media was left collectively shook when Kylie Jenner announced her new fashion venture, Khy. In desperate need of a Kylie Jenner Khy review? I’ve got you. Described as a platform of “edited collections” by Kylie in collaboration with other brands and designers, Khy promises unique, individual clothing drops created to redefine your wardrobe—a major statement considering the success of Kim Kardashian’s SKIMS line.

A big proponent of leather, vinyl, and latex pieces in my personal wardrobe, Khy’s Drop 001 sparked my interest thanks to its assortment of faux leather outerwear, dresses and bottoms, as well as a few “base layer” items intended to pair. On launch day, November 1, I immediately added the (iconic) leather trench to my cart and quickly hit the buy button. Shortly after, I was given the opportunity to sample pieces from Drop 002 and jumped at the offer. Designed around puffer styles and additional base layers in collaboration with the outerwear brand Entire Studios, this collection was perfect for the frigid temps in N.Y.C., where I live. So after securing the Khy bag of Drops 001 & 002, I was ready for a weekend out on the town—all dressed in Khy.

Drop 001: The Faux Leather Trench

On a Friday night, my partner and I decided to attend a (much-needed) drag show after a stressful week. Hitting the club called for a dramatic look, and the faux-leather trench (which is currently sold-out) was perfect for the outing. In collaboration with Namilia, the faux-leather pieces mix a slick leather look with silver hardware for an edgy biker aesthetic. I paired the coat with the full catsuit from Drop 002, joking to my partner he had no choice but to help me get in and out of it all night. (Bathroom breaks in a catsuit are no joke.) Once he obliged, I threw on my Bottega Veneta Tire Boots and we called a car to Playhouse, one of our favorite LGBTQ+ bars in NYC’s West Village.

I was a bit nervous stepping out in a full onesie, no pants, covered only by the trench. However, the fabric on the base layers is super thick and stretchy, sucking you in for a very snatched feeling (of note: I wore a M in all pieces and am 6 feet tall—it fit perfectly). The leather trench is nice and thick without being too warm, so I was able to wear both together comfortably. I also loved the collection of zippers at the bottom of the piece, allowing for more breathability and stylistic choices. Yes, the Angelina-esque slit is definitely achievable. A few cocktails and drag numbers later, me and my Khy trench headed home and straight to bed.

Drop 002: The Standard Puffer Jacket

The next day, a friend of mine hosted a birthday brunch in Brooklyn. Because of the frigid, blustery conditions, I decided to test out the puffer. Since puffers are the key for staying warm in harsh NYC winters, I was very curious to see how practical this jacket was. Instead of the cropped style, I opted for the standard version in black since I thought it would be the most versatile for on-the-go days. The design very much reflects Entire Studio’s minimal, proportion-focused aesthetic, with lots of volume throughout.

After throwing on my Drop 001 base layer mock neck, the first thing I noticed putting on the puffer was the sheer volume of this jacket. There was a marshmallow-like feeling that was very comfortable and almost soothing. Walking towards the L subway train, I instantly could tell this thing was no joke. I was so warm and didn’t feel the chilly gusts one bit. A feature I kept finding useful throughout the day was the velcro closing down the front, allowing me to just throw it shut without fiddling with a zipper. Game changer. The mock neck was a perfect piece to pair with the puffer, too.

On Sunday, my partner and I decided to check out the holiday market in Union Square before grabbing a martini. I opted again for the puffer on the 50º day, but unfortunately, as we started walking, it began to downpour. The puffer’s external material is a soft-touch nylon, so I was concerned how it would fair. After a jaunt through the market and making it safely to Bar Pisellino, I was hyped to see the jacket dried off quickly on a nearby chair as I sipped my gin ‘tini with a twist. Weather-proof? Check.

Final Thoughts

KarJenner fans (and haters) were all curious when Kylie first announced this project, wondering whether the quality, design, and materials would hold up. My honest thoughts? I can safely say I thoroughly enjoyed these pieces and was surprised by the genuinely good quality, more than anything. The faux leather trench is a great statement piece to pair with basics. The base layers have a fantastic feel and support. And the puffer… all I can say as a New Yorker of 10 years is that it’s going to be receiving a lot of use this winter.
