The Irreverent Iris Apfel

Iris and her husband Carl

To say our junior stylist Adam Pruchniewicz (Pruc-ni-vitzch) is obsessed with Iris Apfel is a bit of an understatement. Her charistmatic and worldly sense of style lines his walls (see our earlier mood board feature), so he'll be over-the-moon to see her interview on The Telegraph's website.

''Now when I walk down Fifth Avenue in the summertime I just want to throw up. It seems that the fatter and uglier people are, the fewer clothes they wear. The shorts and flip-flops and tight jeans on butts that go from here to Poughkeepsie."

I don't know what 'Poughkeepsie' is, I'm guessing a town, but it's comical nevertheless. In the words of Adam: 'Long live Iris'.


  1. LOVE that you featured Iris! She really is one of a kind. So inspirational!

  2. Guuuuyyyss, Poughkeepsie is a town outside of NYC!!!! Thank goodness your American Buying Director can teach you a thing or two every so often... And, LOVE Iris! Ruth
