Iris Apfel in Dazed and Confused

she is my favorite. since forever. holy wow yes omg. she is magnificent. she is an icon.  i have said forever, that when i grow up i will be her.  my latest collection features a “young Iris”. i was just her on Halloween — not because she is scary or that i was being cheeky, but because my wardrobe allowed it quite easily without much planning.  juuuust getting dressed in my normal way 😉

she is such an inspiration. i am so happy that she is being celebrated, i feel like it says something really positive about our culture right now that people like Iris, Anna Piaggi, — even Anna Dello Russo who is younger than the other ladies, but still “older” in fashion terms have such a prominent place in the style world.  Not only are they older, they all share an incredibly creative and free-spirited approach to fashion.

long live eccentric women! may you bring us all on your colorful journey!
