It’s no secret that Nicki Minaj loves wearing clothes from her collaboration with Kmart. The jackets from the collection are just perfect to wear without a shirt underneath—she’s done it twice. She also wore a pair of her own distressed, acid-wash jeans to perform during New York Fashion Week and rocked a matching two-piece look while sitting front row at Jeremy Scott. So when Minaj took the stage at Power 105.1’s Powerhouse concert this weekend, and (as usual) posted a pic of what she was wearing on Instagram, we had to take a closer look at her ensemble’s familiar design.
Pieces from Nicki Minaj’s Kmart collection.
There’s nothing mysterious about Nicki wearing a skintight, chain-print bodysuit and matching cropped jacket, but through the caption, she revealed that these were items from the Nicki Minaj collection. But, um, hold up: this print and a bodysuit were not included in the recently-released collection.
As experts in all things Nicki Minaj, we noticed that a chain print was included in the collection, but the background was blue, it was a different kind of chain and it was only released on a bomber jacket, a dress, and a pair of leggings. After researching, we found that there was also a chain print released on a black background, though that only came in dress form and, still, it’s a different style chain.
The chain on Nicki’s outfit from this weekend is simple and gold (fittingly, she wore some gold chains with it); the ones included in the collection have different size rings and have different patterns included between them. The most perplexing part of this whole thing, though, is that Nicki didn’t include bodysuits in her collection in the first place—she’s kinda known for them.
So, does the debut of a new piece of clothing with a new print captioned “The #nickiminajcollection” mean there’s more Nicki Minaj X Kmart coming, or was this just a scrapped look that Nicki decided to wear anyway? We’ll keep our eyes glued to her Instagram (duh) for any more clues. We love a good mystery.
