One glance at Iris Apfel and you can see why her aesthetic might appeal to a bunch of style renegades like ourselves, who believe in breaking the “rules” and forging the frontiers of fashion.
For starters, she ascribes to an attitude we share, that “more is more, less is a bore”. (While often attributed to her, the phrase actually originated with architect Robert Venturi, but I think we can all agree that Iris Apfel is the living, breathing embodiment of it.) Color, volume, baubles – all of it. Pile. It. On.
