When Rodgers and Hammerstein penned “There Ain’t Nothing Like A Dame” they could have been describing the outlandishly and compellingly stylish Iris Apfel. Known for her oversized black frame glasses and equally large sense of style, Apfel recently offered a few different jewelry collections based on her own collections. (And got into some hot water when one of these was fairly close in inspiration – too close – to some other notable designs…)
This multistrand necklace is evocative of her more is more aesthetic. Apfel probably would pair it with an embroidered coat in primary colours, and arm loads of bangle bracelets. How you choose to style it is up to you – and part of the fun. Yoox is also selling unsigned vintage pieces from Apfel’s personal collection.
This fab necklace is currently on sale at Yoox, for USD $225 from $325.
