Iris Apfel x Bernardaud

And they said she had retired from the business… At nearly 100, Iris Apfel proves yet again that in terms of style, age doesn’t count. A devotee of vintage and mix-and-match looks before their time, the American fashion icon with the huge round glasses has dreamed up a jewelry collection with porcelain specialist Bernardaud. True to her eccentric style, she has designed long necklaces and breastplate jewelry in pastel beads, an oversized pendant sporting a contorted mannequin and an owl brooch to be worn in pairs, as she does. An eternal inspiration.
