IRIS APFEL...RULES!


Historiadora del arte, ex empresaria textil, hoy se dedica a montar exposiciones y dar charlas sobre moda en distintos lugares de Estados Unidos en las que defiende la individualidad como valor supremo: “No creo en las mujeres que ven la última cartera Hermès en una serie de televisión y quieren tenerla. Me parece aburrido. Por qué no buscar algo hermoso, práctico y exótico”.



Esta mujer de 91 años, está siendo fuente de inspiración, este 2012, para firmas como Mac o Jimmy Choo, quien le contratan como modelo para sus campañas.

Pero, afortunadamente no es la única, también hemos visto desfilar para Tom Ford a Lauren Hutton y Marisa Berenson de 67 y 64 años respectivamente, mientras que Daphne Selfe con sus 82 años sin haber pasado por cirugía, sigue con éxito su carrera de modelo empezada a los 50 años!.

La marca de cosméticos acaba de lanzar una colección limitada, inspirada en ella, con clores rojos, verdes eléctricos y azules.


Y la prestigiosa marca de complementos, ha creado unas sandalias, en plano y tacón, y un bolso con su nombre. Ambos de estilo maximalista, con exuberantes superposiciones de joyería étnica y tribal.





Fue homenajeada en 2005 por el Museo Metropolitano de Nueva York que por primera vez dedicaba una exposición al ropero de alguien con vida. En 2008 ocupó el séptimo lugar en la lista de las mejores vestidas de la revista Vanity Fair y a fines de 2010 ganó el premio Ícono Mundial de Estilo en el WGSN Global Fashion Awards. Recientemente.
Su exuberante estilo ha sido seleccionado por el Instituto del Vestido del Museo Metropolitano de Arte para una exposición titulada “Rara Avis : Selecciones de la colección de Iris Apfel” . También se le dedicará un documental dirigido por el famoso cineasta Albert Maysles.

Si quieres saber más sobre la estética de esta singular modelo, te recomiendo que eches un ojo a su libro, Rare Bird of Fashion: The Irreverent Iris Apfel (US$ 40.74) cuyos autores son la propia Iris Apfel y el fotógrafo Eric Boman. El prólogo es de Harold Koda, connotado curador de moda (lo tienes en Amazon).

  11. I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is

    required to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog
    like yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very

    internet savvy so I'm not 100% sure. Any tips or advice

    would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

  19. I do love the manner in which you have presented this
    particular situation and it does provide us some fodder
    for thought.

    Nonetheless, because of what precisely I

    have personally seen, I really

    trust as the remarks stack on that people today remain

    on issue and don't embark upon a tirade associated with the news of the day. Yet, thank you for this

    excellent piece and even though I

    can not really agree with this in totality, I respect

    your perspective.
