Kendall and Kylie Jenner may still be in hot water with some fans for their rap icon T-shirt controversy, but that isn't stopping them from using their famous names to sell clothing (or even slowing them down at all). On Monday, the sisters released a new Kendall + Kylie swimwear capsule sold exclusively through Revolve.

The swim collection features 23 pieces that range from string bikinis to high-necked one-pieces, with prices from $45 to $165.

"We've seen huge success with the Kendall + Kylie ready-to-wear and shoe business," said Revolve's vice president of merchandising and buying Lauren Yerkes in a statement. "We were inspired by the girls' input to translate the '80s for the millennial customer, with high cut legs and on-trend one-pieces and sexy two-pieces."

Kylie told Vogue.com that vintage gems from her mom's closet influenced the capsule's aesthetic. "My mom has the most amazing '70s and '80s swim collection... we were really inspired by that sexy sport vibe." Indeed, a red "Baywatch"-esque one-piece with a little American flag on the front seems like it could've been pulled straight from Kris's archives.

"The bathing suit styles we designed for this collection are sexy and fun," Kendall said in a Revolve press release. "The red one piece with the American flag is one of my favorites."

Lingerie motifs are also repeated in the collection, which features bustier tops in both subdued and neon hues. "I love layering lingerie and swim into my everyday looks, especially during the summertime," said Kylie to Vogue.com. "I'm definitely a fan of the 'swimtimates' trend!"

Close followers of Kardashian-related controversies may also note a few camo-print pieces in the collection that aren't a far cry from the camo merch Kylie released in her June drop. The drop was criticized by some as being a rip-off of an indie designer that Kylie had borrowed from before.

But if the Kardashian-Jenner clan knows anything, it's how to turn controversy (and even outrage) into cold, hard cash. We're guessing they'll have no problem doing that this time around, either.
