Is Kimora's Life in the Fab Lane taking a detour? The Phat Farm and Baby Phat Flagship at 129 Prince St between Wooster and West Broadway has closed, with no indication of relocation yet. The inside is barren save for a few leftover leather banquettes, which the staff clearing out the place will surely remove by the end of the week. To see the store back in its glory days of late last year, there is one whole episode of Kimora's E! reality show featuring this space as it gets feng shiu-ed out for Kimora's Hello Kitty jewelry launch. Betting that this store probably didn't have enough room for Kimora's KLS Collection and Russell's new Argyle Culture line, we're predicting a return of Baby Phat.
