Having Fun is the Best Revenge, Ooh La La!

IrisApfelinParisforBonMarcheIris Did Paris! From February 27 to April 16, Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche Department Store featured an “Iris in Paris” fashion exhibit and pop-up shop celebrating the inimitable style of one of Z’Scoop’s favorites, 94-year-old Iris Apfel.

“Iris in Paris” windows, website videos and a special saleable signature series of delightful objects and accessories are making a high style statement worn by Apfel fans all over the City of Light.

Z’Scoop profiled Iris Apfel Advanced Style Icon, December 30, in Z’Scoop Fashion section. If you missed it, check her out with the link below!


As unique and riveting in Paris as she is in other world fashion capitols, Iris’s exhibit portrayed Ten Instants of Parisian Life spanning Iris’s adventures at the Opera, the Louvre, at Notre Dame, seated at a terrace cafe, during a fashion show, on the Seine River in a Bateau-Mouche. What else can she do and where else can she go in Paris?
