Fashion icon Iris Apfel, at age 88 has announced the launch of her first jewellery collection with HSN (Home Style Network). "Rara Avis" by Iris Apfel will go on sale via HSN in September, and consists of 13 pieces with prices ranging from $20- $180.

'I have amassed an enormous collection of bags, belts, bangles and beads without which I would be lost.

One can change the entire look of an outfit by substituting one accessory for another. I love objects from different worlds, different eras, combined my way. Never uptight, achieving - hopefully - a kind of throwaway chic.' (dailymail.co.uk)

Above are some of the pieces from her latest collection, though the toucan pin (first image) after much controversy has been removed from the collection. You can read about them here:



Coming up next might be a collaboration with jewellery designer Alexis Bittar. In an interview with Refinery29, the designer revealed that part of his fashion week's plans was "doing a collaboratoin with Iris Apfel". Definitely looking forward to seeing what a CFDA's "Accessory Designer of the Year" (for 2010) and a fashion icon are coming up with! x


  1. I love how over the top this is! she's a girl that loves her baubles.

    crazy the influence fashion bloggers can have too (over the toucan pin controversy!)

  2. i know! it's a shame though the controversy over the pin. I think with fashion and design, people will always be taking inspiration from things that have been done before, colors..style etc. I guess with the pin the similarities were just too close for comfort!

    nevertheless, i still love her style! inspirational x

  3. Love the adds and the owl piece! Amazing! :)
