Huh? Thanks once again to Christopher Peterson, our trademark snoop, we’ve uncovered Sean Combs‘ possible new name for a label for girls, called Daddy’s Girl. We are assuming that this line will be aimed at adolescent and young teenage girls, since Sean Combs announced today a new young women’s sportswear line, called Sean John. So, who is putting up the money for this venture? Well, from the documents that Christopher has uncovered, it looks like Fashion Ventures LLC and The CIT Group are the ones opening their pocketbooks.
Diddy bought out the trademark Daddy’s Girl from James Boyce (the photo to the right was used by James Boyce in his trademark filing), so he could get approval for his own Daddy’s Girl trademark application now pending. So it looks like Sean Combs did do his homework this time, unlike the Unforgivable trademark snafu. This is going to be a full product line, or at least he’s covering all his bases:
Shirts, blouses, jackets, bathing suits, beach and swimming cover-ups, pants, dresses, shorts, skirts, jeans, gloves, suits, belts, socks, underwear, stockings, tights, hats, coats, vests, sweaters, t-shirts, raincoats, tank tops, shoes, boots, slippers, bras, nightgowns, robes, scarves, shawls, handbags, wallets, key cases, change purses, cosmetic bags and pouches sold empty, briefcase-type portfolios, suitcases, umbrellas, duffle bags, tote bags, luggage, overnight cases, cosmetics and makeup, skin care preparations, hair care preparations, nail care preparations, bath products, beauty products, toiletries, fragrances, and perfumery products.
I’m not really grooving on the name for the label. It can come off as two things: the cute little daddy’s girl who enjoys dressing up pretty, or daddy’s girl in the creepy incestuous way.
Daddy’s Girl isn’t the only label that P Diddy has up his sleeve. He’s also filed for the trademark for a brand called Trap King. We are presuming it’s a men’s sportswear line that will encompass the following products that were included in the trademark application; clothing, clothing accessories, footwear and headwear.
The trademark details for Daddy Girl are after the jump.
