Iris Apfel Wants to See More Originality in Fashion

I think personal style is mostly attitude,” Iris Apfel tells POPSUGAR at The Colony Palm Hotel in West Palm Beach, FL. At 100 years old

the renowned interior designer — dressed in a turquoise pantsuit with layered pearl necklaces,

colorful bangles, and her signature glasses — is an expert on personal style.

Over the course of her 72-year career, she has worked as a copywriter for Women’s Wear Daily,

decorated the White House for nine US presidents, and curated museum exhibitions around the world.

Her latest venture is a limited edition of clothing, accessories, and shoes for H&M launching on April 14.

Apfel is one of those rare style icons whose influence transcends generations.

She has 2.2 million followers on Instagram and 34K on TikTok, most of whom will undoubtedly flock to buy the new Iris Apfel x H&M collection.
