Iris Apfel Celebrates 100th Birthday With New Collaboration
Iris Apfel is celebrating her 100th birthday with a collaboration with Zenni Eyewear. The 99-year-old became a style icon throughout the fashion circles and signed with IMG Models in 2019 at 97. Famous for her iconic style and oversized glasses, the NY-native is curating a series of eyewear, dubbed the Iris Apfel Edit.
“I adore accessories, and I think glasses can absolutely make an outfit,” she explained. “I collected them long before I needed them. For me, glasses inspire or finish all of my looks. We all shouldn’t want to look the same, and glasses are a fantastic way to find your own unique style and change things up.” Five designs are available for purchase, including her signature black round specs – she also includes a series of Mini Iris for kids.
