Fabulosity, Kimora Lee Simmons' junior line for JCPenney, is now available in stores and online. I was not looking forward to the launch of this collection, and after seeing the limited selection of tees, tube tops and denim pieces that are now at JCPenney.com, I gotta say it ain't good. Now let's just forget about Kimora for a moment here, because at the end of the day, she is irrelevant. You may admire her ambition, her work ethic, and her no-nonsense approach to business and even motherhood, but at the end of the day, as a customer, you will be stuck wearing a tacky t-shirt with a cheesy "Fabulosity" logo that bears no resemblance to it's creator and her high-end, jet-setting lifestyle. I felt the same way about Bitten by Sarah Jessica Parker - as much as I adore the actress and everything she's done for fashion, I couldn't find a single wearable item in her so-called clothing line for Steve and Barry's. Fabulosity is fake streetwear. It's big companies saying, hey! Let's make a buck off what the kids are wearing today! So don't be fooled. I truly admire streetwear, and the real deal is not sold at JCPenney. If you want streetwear, shop at Karmaloop.com or Untitled. Fabulosity is akin to wearing a Hannah Montana t-shirt or SpongeBob SquarePants PJs - it's gimmicky, it's tacky and it's not cool unless you're under 10 years old. And if you don't believe me, I would simply say that I obviously do not decide what is and isn't cool. Cool is fleeting, cool is ethereal, cool is, well, something we're all chasing. Fabulosity is not it.
