Tonight! Iman Debuts Her Global Chic Platinum Collection on HSN!
If you think you’re seen affordable luxury, wait until you see this!
Last night in New York City, a few style editors and bloggers were invited to meet Iman and view her new Global Chic Platinum Collection for HSN. Before we go any further, I have to make a full disclosure: I adore Iman’s accessories and clothing. Everything is beautifully crafted and on-point. I also have a girl crush on her. She’s so funny, smart, charming and tall. I’d like to be her when I grow up.
During the chat, she mentioned that Marc Jacobs once asked her what she did with her first big check. Iman replied that she bought a huge Louis Vuitton steamer trunk — that was 30 years ago and it’s still in great condition. However, she uses roller bags now because they’re much more practical.
Iman’s newest collection, the Global Chic Platinum Collection, is an offshoot of her original Iman’s Global Chic Collection. Both are glam, practical and well-made. The new collection has got a very jet-set chic feel to it. Both collections are sold exclusively on HSN. Tune in tonight at midnight (when it becomes August 24th), to watch Iman introduce her line of yummies, call in to say hi, ask questions and chat a bit with her.
The new line is full of luxurious accessories and fashions that would be very happy to be adopted and taken home. Prices range from $47.95 for wide suede sash belts in a rainbow of colors to $159.95 for a faux shearling jacket; from a suede wallet with perforated trim for $49.95 to the lustworthy East/West Satchel in moc croc for $309.95.
Quite a few of us got to play dress up and try on the clothes. From left to right: Makeda from GlamazonDiaries is wearing Iman’s Global Chic Platinum Collection faux fur mink coat that’ll debut in a month or so. Alyssa from SecondCityStyle is lovin’ the East/West saddle bag (we were all crazed for it) and Kristin Booker from FashionStyleBeauty carries the crossbody ponyhair bag with leather trim ($224.95).
Iman took twit pics of everyone modeling and goofing around. You can look for me pretending to be at an airport.
