Baby Phat’s Spring 2010 show was exactly what we’ve learned to love and expect from the incomparable Kimora Lee Simmons—it was sexy, it was bold, it was fun! Baby Phat is for the city girl who likes to feel casual without sacrificing glamour, and this latest collection did not disappoint!
Named “Moroccan Kiss”, this collection was part groovy chick and part glamour queen. Colors abound in shades of coral, turquoise, pinks, and violets. Moroccan style meets ‘70’s influences in jewel toned pieces, bright tie-dye and acid washes, vibrantly colored and metallic embroidery, bohemian prints, and chunky jewelry. The looks were kept from looking too theme-y with their modern-day, sexy, slinky silhouettes. But despite the beautiful colors, and despite the outstanding accessories and ornamentation, my absolute favorite thing on the runway were the sequined leggings. Fabulous!
The whole show was just a fantastic production from beginning to end. This coverage would not be complete without giving props to the diversity of the runway. With beautiful models of different shapes, sizes and color, I applaud Kimora Lee Simmons and her spunky audaciousness in presenting something so counter expectation in a wonderful and matter of fact way. It’s also worth mentioning that show was streamed live in Times Square on a huge screen. And oh, by the way, hands-down best soundtrack of the week. Go big or go home was the name of the game, and boy was I glad to take part!
Oh, and I think there were some men's Phat Farm pants in the mix as well, but for some reason I can’t recall any details:
