We’ve often wondered just what Diane von Furstenberg‘s insane penthouse looked like on the inside. When you walk past the DVF store in the Meatpacking District, all you can see is a polygonal glass roof to what we’ve always assumed was a super sick apartment. We were right.
Iris Apfel is, simply, the coolest. We’ve written about her time and again, and now the style icon is the subject of an interview in June’s Architectural Digest. She, like us, digs costume jewelry, jeans, and thinks that “properly done, [clothes] can be an art form.” Here are some words of wisdom from our favorite octogenarian.
Iris Apfel is probably one of our most favorite people in the world. The 89-year-old interior and textiles designer has been a fashion icon ever since she started popping up in Bill Cunningham‘s photo pages in The New York Times, and we’re hard-pressed to think of a person who has a more individual sense of style — for either their homes or their wardrobes. Which is why last night when we ran into her at a party Ralph Lauren threw for newly installed Architectural Digest editor Margaret Russell, we couldn’t help but ask her a few questions about her style, both at home and on the street.
