Yesterday, fashion icon Iris Apfel celebrated her 95th birthday (can you believe it?) with a lunch at La Sirena with Macy’s in honor of her new curated collection for INC International Concepts. Guests got to take a look at the range—which plays into fall’s revival of mod, featuring A-line skirts, flare leg pants, statement jackets, and oversized baubles in true Iris fashion—and they left with yummy cookies with Iris’ face on them, glasses reminiscent of her signature frames, and jewelry from the collection.
As far as what else Apfel has been up to for her birthday? “Too much! Believe it or not I received about 60 telephone calls. Then I went to a lovely little party for my darling friend Alexis Bittar—our birthdays are a few days apart, so we had 40 people at the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens. We had drinks and a picnic dinner. It was wonderful.”
