At the New York City premiere of "Eat, Pray, Love," Khan spoke exclusively to StyleList about his Eat, Pray, Love Timeless Collection for HSN, which includes India-inspired items such as a sequined clutch and silk caftan, and, of course, the pretty woman of the hour, Julia Roberts.
StyleList: Have you read "Eat, Pray, Love"?
Naeem Khan: I read the book.
SL: What is the inspiration for your HSN Eat, Pray, Love Timeless 13-piece collection?
NK: It's about the journey and life, it's about your heart, it's about having the aspiration of making things happen in the world, and it's a global village.
SL: How has Julia Roberts inspired your Eat, Pray, Love collection?
NK: Julia Roberts is only a vehicle. I mean you have to look at what is the meaning of the movie.
SL: What do you mean? Julia Roberts is a style icon.
NK: It's Julia Roberts, of course. It's like when you worship a god. You're not looking at the statue, you have to look at the meaning. Julia Roberts is the figure plus the journey.
