Kimora Lee Simmons is adding Kouture to her design portfolio. It’s not the kind found on the Paris runways, or in the dictionary, for that matter. Not that grammar has ever applied in Kimora’s kingdom, high above Seventh Avenue on the 43rd floor, where the service stops just short of lifting her sedan chair-style when she wants to scoot closer to her interviewer. “No! You can’t lift me!” says Simmons, laughing like a teenager. “I told you about acting like that in front of people! They’re going to think I make you lift me!”
Once she’s perched in her preferred position, Simmons is ready to talk about Kouture by Kimora, her latest junior collection, launched in an exclusive deal with Macy’s earlier this month. “It’s very trendy, it’s very young and it’s very fun,” says Simmons of the line, which is priced from $19.99 to $34.99 at retail.
