HSN has released a statement regarding the toucan pin that Iris Apfel was accused of copying from a piece by French jeweler Hanna Bernhard. As expected, it was all just a big mistake: "Iris Apfel’s collection for HSN is intended to share her interpretations of some of her vintage jewelry pieces. Mrs. Apfel explained to HSN that, like many of her pieces, she purchased her toucan brooch from a flea market and believed it was a vintage piece. As we have discovered that this is not a vintage piece, the brooch will be removed from the collection."
