NEW YORK — The breakup of Russell Simmons and Phat Farm has presented an unusual situation for Phat Fashions: With its empire now separated—into the hands of both Simmons and Kellwood Corp.—the future of its men’s brands remains in flux.
Late last month, Simmons announced his resignation as CEO of Phat Farm, the hip-hop brand he founded 15 years ago, breaking his ties with Kellwood. Simmons took his newest divisions, Russell Simmons Argyle Culture and Atman, with him.
