90 Year Old Style Icon Turns to Eyewear

New York’s trendiest senior citizen has taken to designing eyewear. 90 year-old style icon, Iris Apfel, has announced she will design a range of eyewear for Eyebots, a quirky company that claims it “makes reading glasses for the irreverent and slightly jaded”.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column]

Although Iris’ full collection won’t be available until 2013, reports say Eyebobs will release a limited edition collection in honour of the designer in 2012. The oversized Jackie O-esque frames, pictured, will be available in mahogany red and classic black.

Speaking of her accessories, Iris has said, “For me the key to personal style lies in accessories. My friends tell me that my oversized glasses and my pairs of bracelets have become my unwritten signature. I have amassed an enormous ‘collection’ of bags, belts, bangles and beads without which I would be lost. One can change the entire look of an outfit by substituting one accessory for another. I love objects from different worlds, different eras, combined my way. Never uptight, achieving – hopefully – a kind of throwaway chic.”

Eyebobs sells online and distributes to retailers – their site is worth a look: www.eyebobs.com
