Posted Monday May 7, 2012 2:31 PM GMT
Like a fine wine, Iris Apfel is getting more fabulous as the years go on. And the 90-year-old fashion icon is gearing up for the launch of her new handbag collection.
Afpel declared, “The old bag is getting into bags,” referring to her forthcoming collaboration with HSN that includes exotic handbags made of hair calf, snakeskin, and Mongolian lamb.
“It’s well-priced. There’s not much around this price point. I’m a great believer that a lot of people on this planet want good design and high quality at a price.”
To that end, Iris has slapped her bags with price tags ranging from $228 all the way up to $398, putting them well within reach of the general marketplace.
Apfel’s bags come in 12 styles and five colors. “I’m a color person. I’ve never been known to play it safe. Plus I like big bags. My eyeglasses are so big they don’t fit into smaller bags.”
