Bittar revealed that his fashion week plans involve “doing a collaboration with Iris Apfel.” It has only been a matter of time before this epic partnership between the two–both known for over-the-top baubles–became a reality.
Bittar, who digs the older ladies (Joan Collins and Lauren Hutton have starred in Bittar’s recent campaigns), counts the 88-year-old style icon as a muse. When Bittar was nominated for “Accessory Designer of the Year” at the 2010 CFDA Awards, he brought her as his date. In preparation for the event, he took to his blog to say that he admires Apfel because “she dresses how she wants to dress with no apologies or explanations.”
Apfel’s first foray into design came earlier this year when she created a jewelry collection called Rara Avis for HSN, set to debut in September.
We can’t wait to see what the duo come up with!
