KLS Celebrates 1 Year!
I had the pleasure of attending Kimora Lee Simmons first year anniversary celebration in its prestigious Beverly Hills store. The City of Beverly Hills honored KLS store with a ribbon cutting, followed by a party to celebrate their anniversary. Some of you know Kimora as a former fashion model, fashion designer, actress, ex-wife of Russell Simmons, CEO of Baby Phat until 2010, author, cosmetic maven and much more. What you probably don't know about her is that she established the Kimora Lee Simmons Scholarship Fund at her high school alma mater in St. Louis to provide college tuition support for academically successful girls with financial needs and is an active member of youth advocacy organizations including Amfar, The G&P Foundation, Keep a Child Alive, Hetrick-Martin Institute and Rush Philanthropic where she is on the Board of Directors. The mayor of St. Louis presented Simmons the key to the city and named March 18, 2008 "Kimora Day" in St. Louis. KLS is one busy woman and let us not forget she’s a mother, that in itself is a full time job.
Kimora Lee Simmons new collection of bold yet streamlined ready-to-wear and accessories can be found on her site and in store. At KLS you’ll find the exact pieces she sought, “from sleek dresses to wear to brunch and keep on for cocktails to the black-but-not-boring jacket that she throws on to pick up the kids and also wear out at night, along with many more. Distinguished by structured yet comfortable silhouettes, KLS combines exquisite materials with luxe details such as flattering panel construction and colorblocking, leather accents, and fearless prints. These are the pieces Kimora now reaches for to feel instantly, confident dressed for whatever the day may bring.”
Kimoras vision to create her brand was inspired by searching out versatile, flattering yet easy to wear pieces, “So I decided to create these pieces for myself, and for other women who sought to look polished and pulled-together not just for an “event” but for an entire, wonderful, unpredictable day—and night.”
KLS store is absolutely stunning, extremely impressive on the inside, everything is streamlined and polished, pieces that are interchangeable and statement makers.
It’s hard not to resist the temptation of entering KLS store and potentially making a purchase. The reason we are attracted to her designer line is the fact that every article of clothing is a staple fashion piece.
Conveniently located in the heart of Beverly Hills on Beverly Blvd., I highly suggest you swing by and take a look, they are also having a sale currently for Memorial Weekend! If you’re unable to visit the store, there KLS site includes everything in store as well as sale items. Have fun shopping! xo
