NYC EVENT ALERT | Fashion Icon Iris Apfel Personal Appearance at Loehmann’s

Style legend Iris Apfel will make a rare personal appearance at the Loehmann’s Chelsea store (7th Avenue and 16th Street) on Wednesday, December 4, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. The 92-year-old fashion icon will be on hand to sign a limited selection of her “Extinctions by Iris Apfel” handbags, priced in Loehmann from $199-$249 (elsewhere from $370-$640). Mrs. Apfel, long known as “the rare bird of fashion,” chose the dodo bird for her Extinctions logo! The collection includes hobos, satchels, and cross-body styles in vibrant fall colors and a range of fabrications, including calf hair, snakeskin, and exotic Mongolian lamb. Every bag features her trademark turquoise silk lining.

The Dec 4th, Loehmann’s “Girls Night Out” event kicks off a week of Friends and Family discounts (Dec. 4th -11th) with 25% off store-wide, sweet treats and refreshments. (Note: Gold and diamond insiders can combine their 10% member discount for a whopping 35% off.)

Iris Apfel is known for her eccentric, head-turning more is more style, mixing haute couture with flea market finds and exotic accessories from her travels around the world. She has been the subject of a string of museum exhibitions, including the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, advertising campaigns (Coach, M.A.C. Cosmetics), fashion magazine layouts, and coffee table books (Rare Bird of Fashion: The Irreverent Iris Apfel by photographer Eric Borman). Her fascinating life and style has been captured in a soon-to-be-released film by famed documentary film maker Albert Maysles.
