These girls are simply unstoppable. Twin sisters Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen have launched a new handbag line as part of their already successful clothing line The Row. The handbag collection includes lucious totes, day bags, evening satchels and even a glazed black crocodile backpack! “We wanted to do a bag for every occasion,” said Mary-Kate.
To celebrate the occasion the girls sat down to interview each other about their design inspirations, their favorite fashion eras and which materials are their favorites to work with.
AO: What are your favorite materials and textiles to work with?
MKO: I love furs and skins because the textures are so compelling. We push ourselves and our team to consider new ideas and techniques for incorporating them.
MKO: What’s the best fashion era of all time?
AO: There are important style contributions from almost every era. Drawing on the right references at the right time is the key.
AO: Do you have a style philosophy? For whom do you dress?
MKO: I dress for me and usually whatever suits my mood.
These girls have an impeccable eye for fashion that is timeless. They create and construct clothing, jewelry, and now handbags that will last a life time. The collection is set to debut in Barney’s stores this August. For pre-ordering information click here.
