Style Piccoli Recreates Iris Apfel’s Iconic Look

Channeling the brilliance of Iris Apfel for Style Piccoli

We just can’t get over the exquisiteness of Iris—the granny-meets-little-girl cover story channeling fashion icon Iris Apfel for Style Piccoli‘s Nov./Dec. ’16 issue. Shot to fame after the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute devoted an entire exhibit to her extensive couture costume jewelry collection, Apfel’s personal style continues to strike a deep chord, reminding us all of the glory of self-expression through clothing. If you haven’t already, spend your next free hour watching Iris on Netflix, the disarmingly candid documentary that gives a peek into Iris’ wardrobe and also her personal philosophy of life.  And now, enjoy a few bits of wisdom and insight straight from fashion’s wise old crone, below.
