HSN has been adding a number of designers and celebrities to their roster of collaborations, and now they’ve signed Twiggy, an English model, actress and singer, known for her large eyes, long eyelashes and thin build famous from the 60s. HSN is scheduled to launch Twiggy London, a new lifestyle collection featuring clothing, accessories and footwear centered around the model and her life, on air April 3rd. Twiggy London ranges from blouses to jackets, handbags, pumps and sneakers — all filtered through Twiggy’s irreverent British lens. Twiggy’s personal favorite is a patent leather Union Jack tote for $79.90 (pictured). “You have a little bit of England on your shoulder,” she said.
“The interesting thing to me about HSN, having seen it through the turnaround since [HSN chief executive officer] Mindy Grossman took over, is that it’s become very fashion-oriented,” Twiggy, whose real name in Lesley Lawson, said, adding she hoped to bring “all the sort of things I love and love to wear” to the network’s viewers. “I think all clothes should be gorgeous, affordable, comfortable and fun. So many times the fashion industry gets a bit serious, and I think fashion should be fun, especially affordable fashion. Most women love to wear things and they love to get new things. We like to buy.” via WWD
