Style Icon & Fashion Industry’s darling Iris Apfel joins the Supermodels – go girl !

Interior designer Iris Apfel, 93, is fast becoming one of the fashion industry’s most sought-after models, having just unveiled her second high-profile ad campaign in as many months.

Apfel, the fashion eccentric who’s also the face of Alexis Bittar for spring (she stars alongside Tavi Gevinson in the campaign), shows off her quirky, colorful sense of style in the ads, pairing one of Spade’s pink handbags with green trousers, blue polka-dotted socks and a giant white bow. Kloss, who favors a more classic, all-American look, is elegantly dolled up in white. Each model’s aesthetic couldn’t be more different, but they look lovely and harmonious sitting on a park bench together.

Now that’s a sale pitch ! : The Problem Solver – beer

There is some scientific truth to how a little drink can help boost creativity—according to Professor Jennifer Wiley of the University of Illinois at Chicago, “a blood alcohol level of 0.075% is optimal for creative problem solving”. To help you “reach your creative peak”, Copenhagen-based ad agency CP + B has collaborated with Professor Wiley to create “The Problem Solver”, an Indian Pale Ale that provides a delicious way for one to reach maximum creativity.

As consuming too much beer would have the reverse effect on creative productivity, The Problem Solver’s label is printed with a handy chart that shows exactly how much you should drink, depending on your body weight, to reach that creative sweet spot.

Currently, this intriguing beer is only available at public workshops in Copenhagen. reblogged from designtaxi
