Annotation

Captures the unique style of fashion maverick Iris Apfel and her exuberantly idiosyncratic personal chic.

Publisher Description

A true original: this lavishly photographed book captures the style of American fashion maverick Iris Apfel, who, over the past forty years, has cultivated a personal chic that is exuberantly idiosyncratic. Combining genres, colours, textures and patterns without regard to period, provenance or, ultimately, aesthetic convention, she is one of the few style icons of our time. Here, in over ninety sumptuous colour plates, Eric Boman shows off a selection of her extraordinary outfits on wittily posed mannequins.
