Iris

The documentary "Iris" about 93 year-old style generator Iris Apfel, is currently streaming on Netflix. It's lovely.

Iris's life, spent collecting and contributing to fashion, textiles, interiors, and style as a whole, is expertly documented by Albert Maysles (Director of Grey Gardens and Gimme Shelter). The glitter of the global textiles and garments that Iris possesses, and the quirky objets d'art she and her partner have collected over the last 60+ years, is enough to make the film worth it. An added bonus is the beauty of the relationship between Iris and her partner Carl Apfel - a kind of tenderness and union that seems to be made from the decades they've spent growing alongside each other. It's a lovely, inspiring film. Carl Apfel recently passed away at age 100 which gives the film even more of a sweet sentiment.
