    PUFF DADDY'S GIRLS

    SEAN COMBS looked straight to his fashion idol, Ralph Lauren, when searching for a designer for his long awaited women's line. The man once known as Puff Daddy has hired Max Wilson, who resigned from Polo Ralph Lauren in February after 11 years working on the women's collections. Wilson will now report to the rapper-turned-designer himself as he builds the womenswear faction into as impressive a retail force as the six-year-old, $450 million menswear label. "We're talking about clothes that are really sexy, stylish and versatile," Wilson told Women's Wear Daily. "Clothes that reflect my image of him. I see him as the new elegance. He represents a total lifestyle and women have been asking for these clothes for years." For Combs, who models his fashion business on the blueprints of companies such as Lauren and Tommy Hilfiger, working alongside a Lauren executive is just another dream come true. Wearing a Lauren Purple Label tuxedo to accept his award for Menswear Designer of the Year, for which Lauren was also nominated, in June, he offered an anecdote about his early career ambitions. "I was in the Polo store saving my last bit of money to get me a Polo shirt, Ralph Lauren, and now I'm nominated with him," he said. "This is like the American dream. Ralph, you're still the sexiest man on the planet." Sean John womenswear will make up 40 per cent of Combs' autumn/winter 2005-6 show in February. (August 11 2004, AM)

    My roommate has a very nice Sean John coat... it's not gross looking at all.. I like some of his stuff.. but a lot of it I find I want to throw into a bonfire.

    But Yea.. since there is a designer from Ralph Lauren.. I really want to see... Maybe it will actually be nice... who knows.

    I wonder what he is planning since the urban streetwear look seems to be dwindling. Besides, there are already plenty of that type of line around although I do not know how well they do.
    Examples: Enyce http://www.mbshowsla.com/fall2004/designer...nyce/index.html
    Baby Phat, J. Lo too.

    Do we really need another line like this?

    actually i dont think Sean John and Enyce are similar at all. Enyce si more of a street wear label whereas sean john is more ready to wear ie in mens wear
    i think his women's wear is going to be at par with other similar labels like calvin klein, gucci... by the way dont misquote me i dont mean that they produce the same stuff

    I'm interested to see what the womens wear will look like. I heard they'll be showcasing at the Sept show.

    Puffy's not that good at it.

    Hadn't you heard, the diaper demographic is the time to start building your brand
    :wink:

    Oddly enough, I like what gets shown on the runway in the Sean Jean collection. I have never seen anything like it in the stores though. I do remember a few shows ago they had maybe 3 or 4 womens looks that were positively "hoochie". I hope they can create a solid look without that element. You can get that at Wet Seal.

    It sounds like it'll be tight. I'd buy it if I could actually afford Sean John. I'm so poor. :cry:
