“For me, beauty has always been a religion. Plato said beauty is God made real,” our very own Imelda Marcos said. She continued “…what God doesn’t give, you have to make yourself.” And with that, she, together with daughter Imee and hunky grandson Borgy, recently launched the Imelda Fashion Collection — a funky, streetwise line of jewelry, clothing and, most definitely, shoes.
The vintage line features pink sneakers with diamond-tipped shoelaces, huge brooches and dog-collar chokers. Imee describes the accessories, which will sell for Php1,500 and more, as “a bit retro, a bit over the top, sort of Madonna meets Elizabeth Taylor.”
“Minimalism is so over,” she said. “My mother is the ultimate maximalist.”
There. Imeldific fashion for the masses. This piece of news, which made the rounds even in intenational media, somehow makes me happy. Why? I’d rather have Imelda focus on fashion designing, rather than elsewhere, and I’m sure you know what I mean.
Now, who wants pink sneakers with diamond-tipped shoelaces? Raise your hands!
