Exclusive: Iman Launches The Platinum Collection With HSN
“Accessories make the girl—and the boy, for that matter.” Truer words have never been spoken and with that short sentence, style icon and supermodel Iman launched her Platinum Collection with HSN this fall.
As the only HSN designer with a waiting list for her collection, the 56-year-old wife to famed rocker David Bowie knows a thing or two about making all women look good on a budget. Iman’s highly successful Global Chic collection with HSN, with all price points under $100, is the second best seller designer label for HSN in the past three years.
“My clothes are chic; they’re classics reinvented,” Iman told the LA Times. “I leave the trends to H&M and Zara because they do it so well.”
Unlike Global Chic, Platinum chic will be higher end, featuring luxe materials like faux fur and leather. Prices will range from $40 to $300 for coats, accessories will average around $40 and leather bags will start at $180.
“I struggled with this collection in terms of price and the economy how it is,” Iman told Essence. “But my thinking was, if I’m giving you fake leather and charging you $150 for it, then shame on me! But instead, I am giving my customers quality products and great design at a higher price point. And I’m giving them choice, because everything in this line still works with our lower-priced Global Chic line, which retails for under $100. It’s very easy to look fierce! It doesn’t have to be from head to toe. Pick that one thing on your body that works — whether it’s great legs or a great smile — and make it stand out!”
