Ninety one year old style icon, Iris Apfel starred on the November cover of Dazed and Confused. Boldly dressed in Comme de garcons, we are seeing a re-occurring trend of using our aging fashion icons as a part of current fashion productions. Almost as if we are starting to accept age as a natural part of beauty. After all with age, our aesthetic is better defined and our sense of self shines through in the way we wear our clothes.
I hope that we continue to brand age as a fashionable asset and support the style legends that inspired us yesterday and today.
