Here’s an odd couple for you: Huggable Hanger inventor Joy Mangano and supermodel Iman.
The duo will be debuting its first-ever collaboration of “Fashionably Functional” fashion accessories, the “Joy & Iman” collection, on Sunday. They have the TS that day.
“This is not about a trend,” Iman said in a canned statement, “This is a collaboration that brings together fashion and function at its best.”
And Mangano chimed in, of course.
“Working with a fashion icon like Iman to bring this collection to life has been an amazing experience,” said Mangano, president and founder of Ingenious Designs LLC, an HSN unit.
“She is the epitome of glamor and luxury, and her esthetic radiates throughout the entire line. I’m very proud of this new collection and can’t wait to introduce it to my HSN fans this weekend!”
The Joy & Iman collection is priced under $40, and includes the Luxe Quilted Wallet for $19.95; a set of 4 Glam Sun Readers with slip cases for $19.95; a Scarf Wrap with Lace for $19.95; and a Luxe Quilted Sandal for $29.95.
Additionally, a Joy & IMAN Iconic Quilted “Fashionably Functional” Bag will be sold for one-day-only Sunday at $39.95.
Iman is a veteran HSN vendor, and actually, her line is part of IDL, which Mangano founded in 1991. IDL has developed and managed product lines for not only IMAN but for chef and restaurateur Todd English and “American Idol” judge Randy Jackson.
