Baby Phat Returns With Forever 21 Collaboration

The Cat is BACK!

The iconic early 2000s brand has returned with a collaboration with Forever 21.

via Complex:

Per Refinery 29, the new pieces launching Thursday are actually just a preview of a full relaunch collection slated for September. The Forever 21 collab follows the pricing model the shop is known for, meaning prospective buyers who recall the brand’s 2000s heyday can score some of the first wave of the 2019 edition without totally fucking up the monies.

“It’s perfect timing for this,” founder Kimora Lee Simmons Leissner told WWD earlier this year when it was initially announced that she had purchased the brand after a deep search. “Over the past several years, we realized the brand resonates with people and lives deep in their souls.”

At the time, Leissner teased that she and the team had designs on providing a “new messaging” for young people. 

In new comments given to Refinery 29 ahead of Thursday’s reveal, Forever 21’s VP of merchandising Linda Chang touted the brand’s “iconic” status and looked forward to helping new customers discover the looks. 

“It has been an honor to work with Kimora Lee Simmons and her daughters, Ming Lee and Aoki Lee, on this project, and we can’t wait to help customers rediscover a legendary brand,” she said.

Will you be buying? Idk, im still on the fence 😋

Closet Classics : Business Attire ( Fall/Winter)

Recently, i was promoted to Marketing Coordinator in Downtown Las Vegas. I had so many clothes but no corporate attire. Ive been wearing uniforms my entire workforce life. This was a great opportunity to shop and it kinda made me re-evaluate my entire wardrobe.

First thing that came to mind was getting the timeless pieces that goes with EVERYTHING ( yall know the closet classics ). I asked a couple of my colleagues where do they shop and FOREVER 21 was the answer more than once. Sadly , one problem i was facing was covering up my beloved tattoos. It seemed like all the cute tops were v-neck and/or short sleeved. Forever 21 carries the cutest pants and slacks to pop any office ensemble. So i opted (is that even a word) out of the fancy blouses and went with a more traditional top with a printed and/or colored pant. I also purchased 3 cardigan sweater that ran 9.50 each (totally a steal). To finish it off i brought 2 pair if ballerina flats one in basic but classical black, and the other in leopard to add a bit of edge to my business attire.
