At a time when early-00s fashion is peaking harder than it did in its heyday, Kimora Lee Simmon’s street fabulous brand Baby Phat needs no introduction. Naturally, the label is getting an official relaunch, and with that Kimora Lee is on the press trail.
In a recent profile for The Cut, it’s revealed in an aside that the brand has one very important and very fashionable fan: Rihanna. Apparently, she bought an entire Baby Phat archive off fashion collector, Gabriel Held, just last year.
Gabriel confirmed the statement over at Page Six, adding that “he’s worked with the musician’s team regularly in the past and when they found out he had a number of original Baby Phat pieces, they asked to purchase his whole collection.”
