Iris Apfel

Stills from Kobra interview clip where Iris Apfel talks about her wardrobe and style.

Iris Apfel is one of those people that's just magical - her spirit, personal sensibility and person. It's like a shot of energy and inspiration straight into your veins.

The Swedish culture program Kobra recently had a segment where they talked to Iris Apfel about her work as an interior designer at the White House (she's worked for the Presidential administrations of Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush Sr, Clinton and Bush Jr).

You can watch the entire episode here on the web (this episode also includes an interview with German Artist Thomas Demand, who's wonderful book 'Thomas Demand' I've previously featured here on Rare Autumn).

As a bonus they also did a web exclusive (stills from this clip above) where Iris Apfel shows some pieces from her wardrobe and talks about fashion and style.

Really don't miss these two absolutely excellent clips! (all interviews in English).

Iris Apfel has also had a number of exhibitions featuring clothes she's collected - see here or here for example.

To read/see more about her go here, here, here or here for example.
