Iris Apfel x Atelier Swarovski

Synonymous with fashion and fun, the iconic Iris Apfel contributed her spec-framed, style-trained eye to a new collection for Atelier Swarovski, marking a decade of business for the brand and the mogul’s first collaboration with the crystal house. A legend in the industry for her convivial style aesthetic, Apfel’s quirky and unique collection, aptly labeled ‘Just Iris’, brings a jovial addition to the Autumn/Winter 2017 assortment. Crystal adorned necklaces, cuffs and earrings tap into exclusive Swarovski offerings such as Crystal Pearls in Black Diamond and the freshly developed Scarabaeus Green effect. A reflection of the spirited senior’s personal style, the addition of a crystal bag charm depicting a miniature Iris delivers a whimsical finishing touch to the collection.

Born in Queens, New York to a decorator father and boutique-owning mother, Apfel’s interest in style was ingrained from her early years. After a stint studying Art and Art History at university, her first role as a copywriter at Women’s Wear Daily thrust her into the industry which led to an assistant role with a renowned interior designer and then a prestigious illustrator. Her next stage in life involved a whirlwind romance and marriage, segueing into the launch of a business with her new husband, Old World Weavers. The textile company’s client list grew extensively throughout its 42 years, garnering attention from celebrities, business moguls, and even the White House, where the style savant decorated for no fewer than nine US Presidents.

Her fearless and exuberant approach to both style and life propelled Apfel into numerous collaboration projects with home goods, cosmetics, fashion, and accessories brands as well as involvement in museum retrospectives, television appearances, book publications, and insider events. Noted for her contributions to the creative industry, Apfel has received various accolades throughout the years, most recently the International Style Icon Award, presented at the 2017 CAFAs.
