Lucifero Illuminazione omaggia Iris Apfel

Lucifer Illuminazione pays homage to Iris Apfel

Iris Apfel is an American fashion icon and entrepreneur born on August 29, 1921. Although not an artist in the traditional sense, her contributions to the world of design and fashion have been widely celebrated for her unique style and its influence.

Iris Apfel began her career in interior design, working with her husband Carl Apfel in their company, Old World Weavers, which specialized in antique textile reproductions. The couple became successful, participating in prestigious projects, including working in the White House for several American presidents.

However, it is her eclectic and bold personal style that makes her famous. Iris Apfel is known for her ability to pair vintage pieces with modern high fashion creations, creating a distinctive and colorful look that challenges traditional clothing conventions. Her ensembles often include large round sunglasses, statement jewelry, and a variety of unique accessories.

Over the years, Apfel has become a significant influence in fashion, celebrated for her independent spirit and ability to mix styles, fabrics and cultures. She was the subject of an exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York in 2005, "Rara Avis: The Irreverent Iris Apfel", which solidified her status as a fashion icon.

Despite her age, Iris Apfel continues to be an influential and inspirational figure, with an active social media presence and collaborations with various fashion brands. His life and style are a tribute to creativity, individuality and longevity in the world of design and fashion.
