Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s contemporary sportswear collection, Elizabeth and James, is now available for you to purchase online at BergdorfGoodman.com (if you’re in the US that is – the site doesnâ€™t ship overseason).
After a quick scan through the collection seemed to be based on clothes Mary-Kate is often snapped wearing, more than Ashley. And for a collection that is aimed at women in their “early 20s, figuring out life and just experimenting”, it is not all that affordable unless you’re first full time job is making thousands of dollars a week after bills and expenses.
“It’s a sophisticated woman with a playful side and is still chic. It’s someone who understands fashion and understands details and expects that as well. It’s [for] someone who understands the design aspects of fashion [and] the designer product, but also doesn’t want to pay designer prices,” Ashley told the WWD.
Well with the a pair of skinny pants setting you back $275, a shirt costing $225 and shorts at $225, the retail prices aren’t quite Marc Jacobs style designer prices, but more like Marc by Marc Jacob prices. So which would you choose choose to buy?
