Dec 6, 2016

Legendary fashion icon Iris Apfel, known for her head-turning personal style, is selling her own jewelry archive. The collection will be sold as a trunk show during the month of December through One Kings Lane.

“There's so much sameness in the world,” Apfel said in her promotional video for the line, “If people aren't going to change their manner of dress, at least change your jewelry so you don't all look alike!"

The new collection will include well over 70 items of Apfel’s personal collection, including bracelets, necklaces, brooches, and earrings. Prices for the collection range between $75 for a lip-shaped brooch to $645 for a heavily-beaded bib necklace.

One Kings Lane is an online furniture and home décor destination. The website also curates a selection of one-of-a-kind and vintage pieces for purchase.

95-year-old Apfel has fronted many campaigns and worked on many collaborative projects in the past, including a clothing collection with Macy’s and a make-up collaboration for MAC. Recently, she’s been the star of campaigns for Kate Spade and Pirch.

Apfel started her illustrious career in 1950 as the founder of textile company Old World Weavers. She then went on to become head interior decorator at the White House and staff writer for WWD. She has been the focus of her own documentary and an exhibit at the Met. The sartorial superstar has been known for her over-the-top jewelry pieces throughout her decades in the spotlight.

Apfel’s One Kings Lane collection launched Tuesday morning, but the majority of the pieces are already sold out.
