H&M and Harper’s Bazaar hosted Iris’s 100th, paying homage to her unmistakably fabulous sense of style with a special Iris Apfel x H&M global collaboration. Now The collection, which launches at the beginning of 2022, consists of an assortment of eclectic dresses, sets and extensive accessories.
Imagine that you enter a room filled with eternal flair and a century’s worth of moments: you hear laughter, and chandeliers glitter; you see magnificent shapes and colors as if lifted from an artist’s palette — the smell of summer flowers and citrus fruits gives you goose bumps. That’s how H&M believes it feels entering Iris Apfel’s wardrobe.
“Style is not about spending a lot of money. It’s not about what or who you wear, but how you feel when wearing something. Style is about self-expression and, above all, attitude,” states Iris. “H&M is a fabulous outfit worldwide and absolute pioneers in their field — which I love! I love doing high style at affordable prices, which H&M has mastered!”
The collection launches at the beginning of 2022.
