Rapper Lil Yachty talks watches with 100-year-old fashion icon Iris Apfel as eBay brings Old School and New School together

Atlanta-based rapper (and avid watch collector) Lil Yachty.

eBay is continuing to raise awareness of its luxury watch offering with a social series of conversations broadcast online called Old School Meets New School.

The concept is that high fashion and luxury goods like prestige watches are timeless, and are loved by young and old alike.

In the first episode, 100-year-old designer, and fashion icon Iris Apfel meets Atlanta-based rapper (and avid watch collector) Lil Yachty.

“I love mixing high and low,” Ms Apfel tells Mr Yachty when he asks about how to wear watches and jewelry. “I will put on a very expensive watch with a bunch of tacky little bracelets,” she adds.

She then asks whether the rapper wears more than one wristwatch at a time? “It is not my personal thing,” he replies. “I like the more classy thing of one watch. That is a very trendy thing in rap,” he adds.

The video can be found at eBay’s new Instagram page dedicated to watches @ebaywatches.
