Iris Apfel: Accidental Icon

Iris Apfel

I never want to be an old fuddy-duddy; I hold the self-proclaimed record for being the World’s Oldest Living Teenager and I intend to keep it that way. – Iris Apfel.   

One of the most dynamic personalities in the worlds of fashion, textiles, and interior design – and hands down the most vital, witty nonagenarian in the solar system – Iris Apfel is a true original. Now, this contemporary legend, whose authenticity, candor, and infectious energy have earned her fans of all ages worldwide, has created an entertaining, thought-provoking, visually arresting, and exciting volume that captures her irrepressible joie de vivre. Astute maxims, anecdotes from childhood to the present, essays on style and various subjects – from the decline of manners to risk-taking – fill the book, as do lists proclamatory, revelatory, and advisory.

A bold, highly colorful design that varies from page to page presents a characteristically improvisational pastiche of vibrant images including personal photographs and mementos, images from top international fashion photographers, specially commissioned art by renowned illustrators, and a range of surprising novelties. This is a rare book by a rare bird, indeed.
