Baby Phat - New York Spring 2009
(NEW YORK) No one can say that Kimora Lee Simmons is afraid to take risks. Celebrating 10 years of Baby Phat, her new collection (aptly named "Decade") took streetwear to the next level. Experimenting with different colors, such as bright purple for men's shorts, or new shapes, such as super short shorts and cropped jackets for women, Simmons surprised attendees. "I just want to further push the Baby Phat lifestyle: to be fabulous, to be bigger than life, to be over the top. You know, giving it to them how we usually do," Simmons said in a tribute video that preceded the collection. And boy, was she over the top. The main element that tied all the looks together was gold: gold chains, gold pinky rings, gold sneakers, gold belts... you get the idea. It was all delightfully Kimora.
