I had the luxury of sitting down for a chat with supermodel Iman last night at the preview of her new platinum collection for Home Shopping Network. What a down-to-earth and inspiring person to talk to. She’s a total doll! Iman’s Global Chic line on the home shopping network is already selling like crazy, there’s even waiting lists for certain bags! Previously the pieces were all under $99. Now she’s starting to offer more luxurious pieces for all under $310, which allows her to include higher end materials for gorgeous pieces like the much anticipated pony hair travel duffels! Every piece is made using rich leather, pony hair, suede or luxurious faux furs. Her line carries everything from luggage to coats, bags and belts. Iman herself is such an accessory junkie, and it shows in her design decisions! She’s super smart with her colors, pockets, and hardware. Making smart choices especially on the bags (her favorite!), which will modernize the shapes while keeping things classic and easy to transition between seasons. The olive, and berry shades used are especially great between summer and fall.
It was refreshing talking to Iman about her choices when designing the pieces. One of her goals was to not underestimate the HSN customer by adding smart fashion forward details that their usual shopper isn’t always offered. She was determined to push the buttons, and mix things up in order to produce pieces she’s genuinely passionate about. It’s amazing to see a celebrity designer who is so involved in the design development process, right down to every stitch, zipper pull and pocket choice.
I can honestly say these looks are truly luxurious pieces at affordable prices that all resemble Iman’s sense of personal style. The line hits HSN and HSN.com on August 24th so hurry and get them while you can. I know they will be quickly snatched up! Here are some snapshots I took of my favorite looks!
