(NEW YORK) Etched on the wall of Gotham Hall, where Kimora Lee Simmons showed her Baby Phat Fall 2009 collection, are the words "There is no gain so sure as that which results from economizing what you have." Perhaps not the most appropriate expression to look over this particular show, because although the price points of Baby Phat may be lower than, say, Hermès, economizing has nothing to do with it. Kimora's brand of fabulosity (and yes, fabulosity is her brand now) came through in over-the-top looks of fur, studded leather, pearls and jewelry galore, and no shortage of embellishment in the form of rhinestones and gems on jeans, tees, bags, etc.
