This summer don’t worry about not affording the latest “It” bag, because chic design duo, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, are launching an affordable new handbag line under their existing brand, Elizabeth and James.
With looks reminiscent of their high-end line The Row, the price point is aimed at a larger demographic. Not quite Alexander Wang but not below Rebecca Minkoff, the handbag line ranges anywhere from $125 to up to $625, with items ranging from clutches and wallets to backpacks and satchels.
These child-actors turned designers have taken the fashion world by storm. Their line The Row caused everyone to take a second look when they released limited edition $39,000 crocodile skin bags, all of which sold out. Needless to say, their new handbag line holds promise and has big shoes to fill!
When it comes down to what the sisters were looking for in their new line, they wanted to stick to what they know: simplicity and hardware. Mixed in with great fabrics and textures, like suede and leather, luxury is most definitely apparent. A palette of neutrals and every-day hues, with pops of colors, adorn the rich materials.
Fans of the young designers can expect the line to launch this summer in July. If you want to experience Elizabeth and James in person, expect to visit a retail store within the next two years in New York, Los Angeles, and South Florida, with plans to expand internationally in Tokyo, Seoul, and London
