We’ve been anxiously awaiting the first-ever Elizabeth and James handbag collection since we first reported it way back in January. We couldn’t get our hands on the crazy expensive handbags by The Row sold exclusively in upscale department stores. There was no way we were buying the ridiculously priced Damien Hirst x The Row pill covered backpack for drumroll please… $55,000! We could buy a bag from the Olsenboye collection for JCPenny, but we wanted an Olsen creation that’s a little more sophisticated. So we were thrilled when we heard the Olsen twins had a handbag collection in the works for their lower-priced contemporary line, Elizabeth and James.
You can pre-order your Elizabeth and James bags thanks to Neiman Marcus. The line includes satchels, backpacks, wallets and more in Italian suede and leather, calf hair and landskin. When news of the line first broke, the sister duo made a point to mention the accessible prices of this collection ($135-$395 for small leather goods and $395-$625 for bags). Now we can finally buy an Olsen created handbag, since we’ve been saving our money since January, duh.
The handbag launch is just one part of the brand’s retail push, which also includes an e-commerce launch in 2014.
