Iris was the subject of Albert Maysles last documentary project. The famed documentarist ~ who also turned his lens on Jackie O's reclusive aunt and cousin, Big Edie and Little Edie, in the cult favorite "Grey Gardens" ~ said he subconsciously made "Iris" about his mother. But, "What I really liked and wanted to show was the glasses.”

Iris's famous heavy-rimmed, oversized glasses ~ now in a collection she designed for EyeBobs. Accessories are a signature part of Iris's style...learned from her boutique-owner mother, who "worshipped at the altar of the accessory."
