Rare Bird: Iris Apfel’s Estate Sale

Househappy —  April 7, 2014 — Leave a comment

Iris Apfel is a legend. From her work as a textile designer (she started Old World Weavers with her late husband, Carl) to her status as geriatric muse to brands like Jimmy Choo and Mac, Iris has never deviated from her style maxim: “More is more and less is a bore.”

Now, in advance of her 93rd birthday, Iris is cleaning house. Literally. In a partnership with One Kings Lane, she’s offering up more than 800 of her personal possessions for an unprecedented online estate sale.

Will we be buying? Maybe. (After all, she was one of the first women to wear blue jeans in the 1940s—icon status.)

To quote Iris, “You only have one trip; you might as well have fun.”
