Model, business woman, interior expert and fashion designer – icon Iris Apfel has squeezed a whole load of projects into her 100 years.

Well-known for her exuberant style and grand flare, Iris is celebrating turning 100 years old with an exclusive collection with high-street brand H&M because, well, why not?

If Iris’s wonderful and creative personal style is anything to go by, this could be one of the brand's most successful collaborations yet.

Discussing the news, Iris said: “I think H&M is fabulous and they are absolute pioneers in their field – which I love.

“I love doing high style at affordable prices, which H&M has mastered!”

The collection will include stunning designs which to suit absolutely everyone, so just like Iris, you can be fashionable at any age.

Key pieces in the range will include colourful coords, fabulous floral suits and gorgeous tiered ruffle dresses – can it get any better than this?

Yes, it can. All of the materials used in the collection will be recycled or sustainably-sourced.

And that’s not all, as along with the clothing, H&M will also be releasing a jewellery and accessories line including chunky statement pieces inspired by Iris’s iconic layered looks and signature statement jewels.
