New on DVD / Blu-ray - 08.25.15

SYNOPSISIRIS pairs legendary 87-year-old documentarian Albert Maysles with Iris Apfel, the quick-witted, flamboyantly dressed 93-year-old style maven who has had an outsized presence on the New York fashion scene for decades. More than a fashion film, the documentary is a story about creativity and how, even in Iris' dotage, a soaring free spirit continues to inspire.

REVIEW: Often you come across a personality that has to be captured on film. None is as visually entertaining and outspoken as IRIS. 

Iris Apfel is a fashion and style icon. She has been dressing up people and homes for much of her 90 years. This documentary from legendary filmmaker Albert Maysles perfectly displays her uncanny talent and eye for creativity. Iris is not a flamboyant person but instead allows her clothing and jewelry to speak for her. She has no problem wearing a $25 broach with a $1000 shirt. Because she is more concerned about what works than what the price tag is. This ability has made her one of the most respected people in the fashion industry. READ MORE
