BABY PHAT F/W ’08-09





It’s the hottest show ticket in [Fashion Week] town according to members of the press!

What’s so hot?! Everything: Great Music; Glitterati’s; Flashing Lights; Photogs. and everything else over-the-top.

There wasn’t anything adolescent about Kimora Lee’s Baby Phat collection this season. The ladies actually were looking right (smilessss) in wearable and salable garments. Past collections in my opinion were overly embellished and more customization inclined than actual ready-to-wear. But I digress, their menswear collection shown (Phat Farm) championed strong! The menswear design elements matured to grown-and-sexy (props K. Cheong)—no kidding around this season.

The overall menswear presentation was chill-luxe (Mr. MS R favorite getup). Polka dot ascots pairing with Satin Blazers and casual footwear came forward. To follow, pinstripe suit vests with selvage bottoms busted onto the runway. In addition, premium suiting and outwears made a grand appearance. Styled separates—for men and women—showcased unified looks on the models.

Kimora (and Russell) managed seamlessly to include the ‘Green Bracelet’ from their Green Initiative Jewelry Collection to compliment the gents’ sartorial attire.

Overall—I thought the collection grew and earned eye-takes from luxury retailers that looked before, but never purchased.

Baby Phat was amazing! Simply, amazing Kimora. I like that fact you highlighted the mens clothes for your male readers. I also love this blog. Are you a fashion designer or writer?

Take care,

Thanks for the feedback Robin. It's very much appreciated. I'm not a designer ( I can't even stitch a button.lol) but I do enjoy writing--especially about menswear.
