Dress to Impressionist

apfel_matisseA few months ago I got off the train at Christopher Street to meet a client for a wardrobe update in the Village.  I came above ground and a woman stopped me and said, "Excuse me but I love everything you have on!  There are all these tourists around here and you're showing them how to do NY chic.  You made my day!"  Of course this delighted me to no end and I had to restrain myself from kidnapping the woman on the spot.  But I digress. The above photo from the video "Iris Apfel dresses for Matisse" put me in mind of that incident because I believe that if Matisse was alive and encountered Iris Apfel, he would say, "I love everything you have on!"  And he'd probably also say she made his day - this video certainly made mine.
