Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have remained a constant inspiration for us. Studying photos of their newest daily get-ups is one of our many guilty thrills, and they are constantly buzzing on the tips of fashion followers’ tongues for their distinctive style and fascinating lives.
By 2006, it seemed the twins had achieved everything possible for their young age; actresses, producers, fashion icons and eleventh place on the ‘Richest Women’ list. However, 2006 saw Mary-Kate and Ashley adding ‘fashion designers’ to their huge list of achievements with the launch of their couture line The Row, and contemporary fashion line Elizabeth and James the following year. Named after their siblings, the brand has since grown into a hugely popular fashion line, continuing to bring out new collections each season. The line is aimed at the fashion-conscious individual, who is sophisticated but also loves to dress up and have fun. Fitted blazers with a masculine nature are juxtaposed with feminine, flowing dresses, and everything topped off with a distinctively Olsen vintage feel. The intricate detailing echoes the girls’ knowledge of textiles, and the result is a collection of wearable pieces for the fashion-forward female. A new denim range called Textile coming out this autumn is going to be an exciting addition to the line; fashion bloggers such as Rumi from hugely popular Fashion Toast have modelled samples from the range already. So until the leaves begin to fall, all we can do is lust!
