Selena Gomez is back in the fashion game.
To celebrate the launch of her friend Theresa Mingus’ swimwear brand, Krahs Swim, the 26-year-old singer has designed three styles — including a bikini with a particularly special purpose.

“The design I did, one of them, it was the high-waisted one with the belt. I’ve had a kidney transplant and I like bathing suits that kind of cover where that’s been and make me feel comfortable,” Gomez explained in a YouTube video announcing the launch.
In 2017, the “Bad Liar” singer revealed she’d undergone a kidney transplant earlier in the year due to complications from lupus, which she’s struggled with for years. Her friend Francia Raisa donated a kidney to the star, and Gomez hinted in the clip that Mingus also helped her through the ordeal.
“I just didn’t think I could get through some of the hardest points in my life if it wasn’t for you,” she said.
Mingus’ label will launch on Thursday, along with the Selena x Krahs capsule; prices range from $39.99 to $69.99, according to People.
