Another Step Towards World Domination: The Olsens' Elizabeth And James
February 6, 2008
The Olsen twins have their names on a lot of stuff – day planners, perfume, and rugs to name a few – but ironically some of their best products don’t say Mary-Kate or Ashley anywhere. Instead, they’re named for the twins’ siblings, Elizabeth and James.
Elizabeth and James, the Olsens’ designer clothing line that launched earlier this year, combines sharper versions of the vintage-grunge look that the twins popularized a few years back, along with nods at old-Hollywood glamour. Below, are our five favorites:
This standout hooded jacket ($425) has an exaggerated hood that can be pulled up or folded over – equally great for throwing over a t-shirt or a floor-grazing gown.
The plunging neckline on this silk satin dress ($550) makes it perfect for showcasing a dramatic necklace or a pair of dangly earrings.
We love the name for the color of this glamorous sequin-covered dress ($450) – white smoke – almost as much as we love the unexpected racerback cut.
The clever button-down back on the Bonfire Shirt ($225) nips it in to create a more feminine shape.
The Dart Top’s ($295) sweet color and ruched detailing are balanced by the neck-to-waist keyhole in the back.
