Iris – Documentary on Netflix

Some have suggested that streaming services have helped create a documentary golden age of sorts. Iris, a doc currently on Netflix, is about fashion icon Iris Apfel. This grande dame of fashion is known for her short white hair, her over-sized black glasses and her love of colorful clothing and accessories. The Metropolitan Museum, no less, featured an exhibit of her madcap combinations of bracelets, necklaces and vintage as well as ethnic ensembles. This 79 minute by filmmaker Albert Maysles (Grey Gardens) will appeal to not only fashion fans, but to anyone who wants to see a seasoned woman still having the time of her life. Catch her husband’s outfits, too!
