First Look: Iris Apfel For MAC-------
MAC is racking up the fashion iconoclasts these days. After releasing its much-discussed collaboration with style/art star Daphne Guinness this month, the beauty giant has revealed that its next collaboration coup will be with Iris Apfel. The 90-year-old bespectacled Apfel and her vast, quirky wardrobe have been the subject of a Metropolitan Museum of Art exhibit, a Coach campaign, and even a coveted time slot on the Home Shopping Network, which put Mrs. Apfel and a coterie of her own designs on the air this fall. Her debut cosmetics collection, which hits shelves on January 5, will be a similar showcase of Apfel’s knack for color—and eccentricity. Included in the 20-piece line are bold lip shades like Party Parrot, a bright matte red, and Flamingo, a glossy cream coral, as well as equally retina-burning nail lacquers like Toco Toucan, a blue fuchsia, and Orielle Orange, a bold tangerine. Each handpicked piece is a wonderful tribute to a very rare bird.
