Diddy has done it again!

Today, he bought fashion label ENYCE from Liz Claiborne.

In case you can’t remember, Enyce is a denim based sportswear brand for men and boys and also has a women’s line.

In true no-bitchassness style, Diddy said he and Liz Claiborne will work together to ensure a smooth and orderly transition for retail partners, vendors and employees.

Add Enyce to the portfolio of brands that he already owns, including Sean John and Zac Posen.

Then go ahead and top that with his marketing of Ciroc Vodka, Unforgivable by Sean John, and all of his television titles.

There can be no argument. Diddy rules.

Apple Bottoms is launching an eyewear line.

Their camp says while the collection was launched in fall 2008, it will soon be available at optical specialty stores nationwide.

“The Apple Bottoms eyewear will come in a variety of innovative, alluring styles,” they said.

Also on the cards is a line of limited-edition prescription sunglasses and eyewear, which will be available in spring 2009.

Apparently, all this comes after Apple Bottoms collaborated with Pan Oceanic Eyewear, Ltd. and launched a sunglasses line.

The collection, “which was inspired by the same trend-setting sunglasses designed throughout Europe, “have been flying off the shelves since they were launched.”

Kimora’s not the only one making new moves.

The P. Miller Designs clothing line is still in the testing phase and only available at 350 select Wal-Mart stores.

Yet already it has become the target of a lawsuit.

The plaintiff, Pepe Leans London, LLC, is suing P. Miller over the presence of a controversial logo: a circled “P.”

P. Miller claims that he legally registered a “circled-P with wings” mark through the US Patent and Trademark Office with a date of first-use of April 1, 2003.

According to Miller’s camp, the plaintiff filed their date of first-use as June 1, 2003.

The US Patent and Trademark Office recognizes the marks of both P. Miller and Pepe Jeans London as registered and unique. Both marks are public record.

We’ll see how things unfold.

Master P and Romeo in their P.Miller Designs clothing line, available at Wal-Mart in August 2008


Father-and-son duo, Master P and Romeo, recently returned to their hometown in New Orleans for the Essence Music Festival.

There, not as performers but as motivational speakers, the two shared messages of hope and revealed one of the reasons for starting their new clothing line at Wal-Mart.

“New Orleans is my home, it’s where I was born and raised,” said Master P.

“I was able to overcome an environment filled with poverty, drugs, and violence through education, setting goals, and dreaming big. I understand the financial struggles faced by inner-city families, so I created high fashion clothing at affordable prices that will be available at Wal-Mart in August for back-to-school season. I look forward to coming back to Essence year after year to empower our youth and watch my people grow.”

That’s awesome!
