Before there were street style bloggers and street style had a name, there was Iris Apfel.

Known for her eclectic sense of style and of course, those glasses! Iris has been photographed for years at NY Social functions and has been featured in tons of magazines.

Now, at the ripe age of 90, Iris Apfel is opening her jewelry box to the world with a brand new line for—which includes new designs as well as original pieces from her own collection.

Her YOOX line features three components: ready-to-wear (her own designs), personal collection (actual vintage pieces that Iris used to own), and a limited-edition line set to début at a later date.

Between a vintage Nina Ricci bauble bracelet, one of Apfel’s signature jewel-encrusted brooches, and a whole lot of chunky lucite, the collections are simply to die for.

Shop the entire collection now right here on, or check out some of our personal favorites in the slideshow after the jump:
