  • Perfection.

    I will admit her clothing is not for everyone - which is exactly why I buy it. If you are (or secretly just want to be) a confident looking woman buy this. It is like Cinderella's magic slipper, Just putting it on makes you feel the best you possible. This jacket is a true work of art. I had to buy three different sizes to find my correct look. It fits true to size - I just wasn't sure how I wanted to wear it. If it wasn't for the price I would have kept all three sizes because I am honestly worried about wearing this out. It can't be replaced. Don't get me wrong, it is very well made and not a delicate garment - but it is also textile art. I feel stronger, taller, thinner, smarter and unforgettable when wearing this. Do you have a piece of clothing that can do that? I do. I am one of the lucky ones.

  • fabulous

    This coat is jaw dropping. A work of art in itself with exquisite embroidery all over. I love the quality of Iris's fashions and the originality of her designs. I always wait for her new clothing items to come in to HSN.

  • WOW

    Received my Velvet Jacket today,,, WOW. I own five of Iris's coats now, All are amazing,,, this one is soooo beautifully done, well made, ... I have a long scarf I think that was just made for this coat. I will wear the first several buttons open with scarf with my new Iris Owl on chain... Can't wait to wear it out. I get so many compliments with lots taking out a pen to write down where I have purchased them and Iris's name. ... when I wear any of Iris's coats.. Thank you ever so much Iris, you are a gift to this world.

Rara Avis by Iris Apfel

The Rara Avis collection by Iris Apfel lends itself to making the rare an exquisitely attainable, livable, and wearable pastime. Textile-inspired wardrobe pieces are crafted from rich textures like jacquard, shantung, boucle and petaluma and are polished off with trims like Mongolian fur and silk-cord embroidery. Her jewelry assortments display oversized baubles crafted from vibrant resins and recycled papers, and the overall aesthetic is nothing short of addictive. This soon-to-be centenarian's mantra has made Iris a beloved style icon, and a household name. In her words, "life is gray and dull. You might as well have a little fun when you dress."
