Kim Kardashian launches emoji-inspired merchandise line

Kim Kardashian is continuing her slow return to the spotlight by launching a line of emoji-inspired merchandise.

The 36-year-old reality star has been keeping a low profile over the last couple of months following her robbery in Paris in October (16) and her husband Kanye West's recent hospitalization for exhaustion and sleep deprivation, but her mum, Kris Jenner, took to Instagram on Friday (16Dec16) to announce the release of her daughter's new initiative.

"New @kimoji merch launching at 8am pst (Pacific Standard Time)!!," she wrote on the social media site. "At"

The picture Kris posted alongside her alert featured scantily clad women from the waist down sporting underwear and flip flops emblazoned with Kim's catchphrases.

The Instagram account for her Kimojis line also features several pictures of the merchandise.

The product line launch comes a few days after Kim appeared in a racy video for the 2016 LOVE advent calendar.

The project, which was reportedly filmed by director James Lima before Kim's ordeal in the French capital, opens with a child drawing a deep blue backdrop before the enchanted landscape becomes real, with Kim showing off her curves in flesh-colored Agent Provocateur underwear. Her trademark brunette hair is styled into beachy waves as she drapes herself in a brown faux fur coat, while green lights shimmer in the background. The video ends with her fading out as the words 'Peace on Earth' appear on a black backdrop.

The mother-of-two's involvement in the LOVE project was a surprise, and comes after several female celebrities posed for the acclaimed magazine's daily festive videos, including her half-sister Kendall Jenner.
