Vanessa and Angela Simmons are no strangers to style. The daughters of legendary rap artist and pioneer Reverend Run (Joseph Simmons) of Run-DMC and rising break-out stars of the first family of hip-hop have quickly established themselves as fashion power houses and entrepreneurs in their own right. The fashionistas introduced Pastry Kicks, a line of stylish sneakers in 2007, offering fun and unique colors and designs targeted to fashion forward females. In short time, Pastry has become a highly sought after fashion brand, expanding into clothing and accessories and the young fashion moguls have become very influential in the market.
The BG5601 takes the classic 80’s-inspired luminous colors style and paints Pastry’s motto on the watch band, giving it a retro-fresh and urban look. The brand also adds its stamp of approval to the chic watch by providing its company’s name in silver script toward the bottom. The watch comes in a one-of-a-kind pink packaging, complete with hearts and stars motif.
“Casio is pleased to collaborate with a brand recognized for trend-setting fashion such as Pastry,” said Shigenori Itoh, vice president of Casio’s Timepiece Division. “With the release of the Baby-G Pastry watch, we are offering a unique combination of cutting-edge style with a playful touch of femininity.”
Baby-G is designed with today’s cool and confident woman in mind. The neon resin watch is bright, bold and beautiful, adding a splash of color to one’s wardrobe. Some key features of the include shock resistance, 100M water resistance, EL Backlight, World Time (48 cities), 5 Daily Alarms, Countdown Timer and 1/100 Second Stopwatch.
The special edition Baby-G style will be gifted by Pastry to select VIP customers, friends and celebrity fashionistas.
