「艾瑞絲‧愛普菲爾是現代最偉大的時尚指標之一」─John Dempsey,雅詩蘭黛集團總裁

「沒有人比艾瑞絲‧愛普菲爾更了解時尚的規則,也沒人比她更勇於打破規則」Harold Koda,前紐約大都會藝術博物館服裝藝術部主要策展人


自紡織業起家的愛普菲爾,早期因為紡織公司的業務造訪許多國家,融合各國的元素和自己獨特的品味,她對於時尚有很不一樣的見解,她認為造型讓自己開心遠比好不好看來得重要。

愛普菲爾對於骨董珠寶也非常喜愛,自家有大量的收藏品,因緣巧合之下紐約大都會藝術博物館向她租借收藏品來展示,沒想到受到各方好評,愛普菲爾也因此在時尚界闖出名氣,工作都找上門來,她的故事也被拍攝成紀錄片《時尚天后的繽紛人生》。

本書即為蒐集愛普菲爾對於時尚的想法、靈感來源、祕聞,用圖像的方式表達出來,透過本書,將這位今年已屆九十六歲的「時尚天后」的人生智慧表達得更淋漓盡致。

"Iris is one of my favorite subjects to photograph. She has four eyes in front and two eyes behind, and that’s why she can see things in a round-about way. She flirts with us just enough to make us fall madly in love with her, as she once did to her beloved husband Carl. In the midst of all the world’s craziness, she remains a loyal friend who constantly opens your eyes."—Bruce Weber


A unique and lavishly illustrated collection of musings, anecdotes, and observations on all matters of life and style, infused with the singular candor, wit, and exuberance of the globally revered ninety-five-year-old fashion icon whose work has been celebrated at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute and by countless fans worldwide.

A woman who transcends time and trends, Iris Apfel is a true original, one of the most dynamic personalities in the worlds of fashion, textiles, and interior design. As the cofounder with her husband, Carl Apfel, of Old World Weavers, an international textile manufacturing company that specialized in reproducing antique fabrics, her prestigious clientele has included Greta Garbo, Estee Lauder, Montgomery Clift, and Joan Rivers. She also acted as a restoration consultant and replicated fabric for the White House over nine presidential administrations. Iris’s travels worldwide and a passion for flea markets of all sorts inspired her work and fueled her passion for collecting fashion and accessories.

In 2005, she was the first living person who was not a designer to have her clothing and accessories exhibited at the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, a blockbuster show that catapulted her to fame and a career as a supermodel, muse, and collaborator for renowned brands, from Citroen to Tag Heuer, and global gigs at Bon Marché in Paris and the Landmark Mandarin Oriental in Hong Kong. In 2015, acclaimed director Albert Maysles released Iris, his last film—now an Emmy Award nominee—to a global audience.

Now, this self-dubbed geriatric starlet, whose irrepressible authenticity, wit, candor, and infectious energy have earned her nearly a million followers on social media, has created an entertaining, thought-provoking, visually arresting, and inspiring volume—her first book—that captures her unique joie de vivre. Iris Apfel: Accidental Icon, contains an eclectic mix of musings and 180 full-color and black-and-white photos and illustrations—presented in the same improvisational, multifaceted style that have made Iris a contemporary fashion icon. Astute maxims, witty anecdotes from childhood to the present, essays on style and various subjects, from the decline of manners to the importance of taking risks, fill the book as do lists, both proclamatory, revelatory, and advisory.

All are paired with a bold, color-filled, exciting design that varies from page to page. Here, too, is a treasure trove of never-before-published personal photographs and mementos, mixed with images from top international fashion photographers and illustrators with enchanting, surprising novelties such as Disney cartoons, vintage postcards, the Iris Apfel Halloween costume for children, and more.
