Kimora Lee Simmons Announces Relaunch Of Baby Phat Coming This Spring

Recommended Posts

Baby Phat is a very nostalgic brand for a lot of people. From the shoes with the dramatic tongue that you probably used to stick your bell-bottom jeans behind, to the fur-lined jackets and t-shirts with the brand's cat stamped on it, Baby Phat was a serious mood and fashion statement at one point in time.

The brand's founder, Kimora Lee Simmons, has recently announced that she's purchased the company back from an unknown buyer and plans on relaunching it this spring.

“It’s perfect timing for this,” Kimora told WWD. “Over the past several years, we realized the brand resonates with people and lives deep in their souls.”

Kimora served as creative director of Baby Phat from 2000 to 2010 while the company was an extension of Phat Farm, the men's extension of the brand that was previously run by her ex-husband Russell Simmons. When the brand was at its peak, it pulled in $1 billion dollars and was worn by many celebrities and big names alike. 

The new launch will be a “mainstream sportswear” collection for millennials targeted to the mid-tier retail level. Kimora plans on tapping into her past archive to update the looks that will have modernized “retro” elements.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
