Only a few people can turn me into a giddy school girl. James Franco, Kanye West, Jake Gyllenhall and Iman. Yes! Iman. The timeless and ageless fashion mogul had me at hello on Monday night at the preview of her Platinum Collection. Dressed in wide leg denim and a nude lacy blouse, Iman’s presence as she walked into the preview was electric. With her favorite Iman Platinum Collection bag in tow, she quickly introduced herself to us, personally shaking hands with everyone and gushing over accessories.
“Accessories make the girl – and the boy, for that matter,” she said as she walked us through the fall offering of her new Platinum Collection, a mid-priced line of clothing, accessories and decadent handbags, made with real leather. She told anecdotes to illustrate her love of accessories and her reasoning for a higher priced line. She simply wants women to have the very best at the very best price. Chock-full of great detailing like pony hair accents, studs and gold embellishments, the handbag collection is ultra luxe. The bags come in vibrant colors like rich forest greens, rapturous reds and sultry cognacs and textures like suede, pony hair and buttery leathers.
Accessories weren’t the only stunners in the Iman Platinum Collection, which debuted on the Home Shopping Network today. Croco-Embossed and Faux Shearling Draped Jacket in decadent colors like brown, green and black complement flattering ponte knit sheath dresses with python leather trimming. Women of all shapes and sizes will appreciate the fine craftsmanship of Iman’s collection. Iman’s clothing range in sizes XS to 3x. Iman will be rolling out the second installment of her collection on October 26th with an offering of rich faux mink coat
