Although we haven't uttered Sean Jean 'round these parts for quite some time, Puff Daddy's 16-year-old fashion label is actually a department store darling. Once modeled by the likes of Channing Tatum (above), the hip-hop mogul's exclusive-to-Macy's brand is apparently ready to spread its
abs wings across the globe. First order of business: hit more store floors and open additional outlets, including one in LA.
WWD reports that Puff (aka Sean Combs aka P. Diddy aka Diddy aka Puffy) is "aiming to turn Sean Jean into a $1 billion brand"; the company's president Jeff Tweedy is confident that they'll reach their goal "within four years." Damn. Plans include revamping 39 Macy's shops to make them "more contemporary" and adding on the aforementioned bargain shops by 2015.
So, where should Sean Jean open its next LA outlet? Desert Hills? Marinate on that while you explore Racked National's gratuitous gallery of ab-happy Sean Jean studs.
