Iris pairs Albert Maysles (the legendary and much-loved documentarian who passed away earlier this year) 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.

“A love letter to individualism.” Little White Lies

“A joyous celebration of creativity and razor-sharp wit.” New York Times

Maysles follows along as Iris goes about her daily activities, all the while embodying the gregarious but elegant style she has come to be renowned for and proving that, in her case at least, fashion is an art form.

Her utterly unique combination of wit, wisdom and joie-de-vivre is infectious, and brings this delightful portrait to life. You will never look at a bangle, or a 93-year old, the same way again.
