Iris Apfel Exclusive: Idol Brooch by Lawrence Vrba
"Oversized brooch made of coral and resin beads by jewelry designer, Lawrence Vrba."
The Peabody Essex Museum store is privileged to collaborate directly with Iris Apfel to procure exclusive items featured in our shop. The PEM shop's Iris Apfel Jewelry collection was carefully chosen from Iris's wardrobe and curated with her guidance. Because each piece in the collection was in Iris's wardrobe rotation, there may be reasonable signs of wear, which lends to their authenticity.
Acquiring an Iris Apfel piece makes one wonder where she might have worn it, a fabulous party, perhaps? What kind of outfit would she have styled with it? Each one is an inspiration to develop your bold style and an excellent conversation piece for your next fabulous party.
A certificate of authenticity accompanies each piece.
Dimensions: 6 x 3.5 inches
Condition: Pre-Loved by Iris. As all pieces were a part of Iris Apfel's personal collection, individual pieces may show reasonable wear and imperfections.
Iris Apfel is an American sartorial superstar and global fashion icon. Known for her eclectic mixing of haute couture with costume jewelry and exotic baubles, Apfel has inspired bold developments in the fashion industry through her spirited irreverence and pitch-perfect taste!
She has been the subject of a documentary, coffee-table book, and several museum exhibitions, including the traveling exhibition Rare Bird of Fashion: The Irreverent Iris Apfel, on view at the PEM in 2009/2010. After the exhibition’s close, Iris bequeathed the entire collection to the museum. In our Fashion and Design Gallery, you can experience 18 full ensembles from the Apfels, 15 from Iris and 3 from her late husband, Carl.
The Carl & Iris Barrel Apfel Gallery at PEM, given in loving memory of Iris’ parents Sam and Syd Barrel, is the largest known museum presentation of the Apfel collection currently on view.
