In the lead-up to another season of The Kardashians, Kendall Jenner appeared on the Jay Shetty Podcast last September for a wide-ranging chat about her childhood and mental health. She sat in the recording studio wearing a slate blue, long-sleeve T-shirt by Intimissimi, silver and quartz earrings by Agmes, and a long black skirt. It was the sort of casual-aspirational outfit that’s made Jenner’s street style a constant fixation, even when she’s only wearing a semi-sheer T-shirt and denim. The pieces aren’t complex or too fashion-y, and they’re inspiring enough to shop—even months after she wears them.
Six months have passed since that outfit was uploaded to YouTube, but Jenner’s understated, $49 interview top is suddenly all over TikTok. The hashtag “Intimissimi top” currently has 72,500 views on the platform, with the highest-viewed videos arriving over the past month. Anecdotally, I’ve counted seven different videos by seven different creators hawking the shirt on my ‘For You’ page—in a single day. There’s a sense that the shirt, often worn in a minimal fashion like Jenner last fall, is being re-discovered by women who also love Polène bags and Laneige lip masks—things that feel luxurious without a four-figure price.
As one creator says, “The niche luxury hot girls love this top, and I feel like they’ve been gatekeeping it.”

Kendall Jenner has worn all sorts of basics—just this week, she wore Leset’s T-shirt for a casual outing—but this Intimissimi shirt is a step above a plain T-shirt in several ways. It’s made from a modal-cashmere blend with some elastane, which is the clothing tag way of saying it’s soft with a juicy amount of stretch and clinginess. It’s also $49 without any sort of coupon, which doesn’t need extra translation. The bateau cut, a neckline Meghan Markle often wears, conveys elegance without any extra embellishments.
The Intimissimi boat neck top is also, crucially, a little see-through. On TikTok, this is one of its most praised features. There’s nothing really naughty about the top with a skin-tone bra underneath. Venture out from nudes into brighter colours, and you have a body-embracing statement. The top’s wispy material is the everyday woman’s connection to the spring/summer 2023 runways, where Tory Burch, Tibi, and Maryam Nassir Zadeh invited women to let it all out in revealing layers (each tweaked to their brand’s visual codes).
