A is for Apfel....

On the subject of vintage, the legendary Iris Apfel had these opening remarks to make last week at an Accessories Magazine led panel discussion:

“...Would somebody please define vintage? I just purchased a jacket from Comme des Garcons at the show and was told it was from 2016. Does that mean anything that was made even a week ago is vintage? Vintage used to be an elegant way of saying ‘old clothes’ but for me, it seems that the term can be used to define something that is unusual, not run of the mill, and one of a kind, regardless of the age. Age doesn’t mean anything in and of itself. Just look at me!"  Iris Apfel, Accessories Magazine
