On one of the coldest and rainiest evenings I still trekked to Roseland Ballroom to see what Ms. Fabulosity had in store. The floors were adorned with red rose petals and a glowing hue from the stage promised that the wait would be worth it. Russian opulence was the collections theme with, of course, as much bling, gold and glitter that NYC can hold. Baby Phat is perhaps the only brand that can continously pull a crowd in the rain sleet or snow to see the next season’s hip-hop glamour.
For Fall ’07 we saw a few stunners including a peek into to a trend of using menswear fabrics for sexy feminine suits, tweed pants, and skirts that are wearable to the office. The colors for Baby Phat are full of shine with metallics, fur, fur, and more fur. Faves were: flamenco ruffle hems; winter white bubble skirt mini with matching fur-trimmed boots; and a sexy old Hollywood black caftan. Subltle notes of cream, white, black, gray and natural browns intermix to tone it down for those of us in the normal 9-5 world. I hope to see these creations make it to the stores that carry her brand. Until then I’ll keep trekking to the shows!
