Holt Renfrew Snags Elizabeth and James

Interesting fact - the line is actually named after the Olsen twins siblings - Elizabeth & James of course!
___________________________________________________

Two of our favorite vintage loving girls - Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen launched their own line last fall called Elizabeth and James.

I am happy to let all my Canadian girls know that Holt Renfrew on Bloor will now be carrying the line exclusively as of this spring! It is completely and utterly vintage inspired in my view but with a young, hip twist. I for one am eager to go see if the frocks live up to how they look in pictures. I grabbed both these pictures for this post off the web so you can see what the line looks like - both these dresses as worn by the girls are from their line.

Here is a snippet from an article I found

For Bergdorf Goodman, which picked up the line for fall along with Neiman Marcus and Intermix, Roopal Patel, senior women's fashion director at Bergdorf's, said the Elizabeth and James collection should fit in on the contemporary floor quite well.

"The look of the line is very modern with an urban approach," she said. "It's fresh, appealing and very eclectic. I think that customers will notice that it will reflect their own personal styles without taking over their look by being supertrendy. The line shows a great balance of vintage meets masculinity and rock 'n' roll, which makes it unique."


Patel said when she went to look at the collection for the first time,
she brought along her team of buyers, who each tried on something from the line and each found something they loved.

"Elizabeth and James is inviting without being overpowering," she said. "I think it will do very well for us."

Another interesting fact - MK actually wore this VINTAGE dress
way back in '06.
It was then translated to become part of her new line.

Uh Huh the vintage defense rests
