::Elizabeth & James::
If you all don't know yet, Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen are the designers behind the already coveted Elizabeth and James, their lower end fashion line that we can actually afford without having to be put out on the streets. Their higher end line The Row however has handbags that reach well up into 40k, their popularity but unaffordability got the Olsen's thinking they should create a handbag line for Elizabeth and James as well and boy was that their best designer decision yet.
I had the privilege of attending their launch party held at The Chateau Marmont thrown by In Style Magazine. The party was held up in the penthouse with velvet couches, lovely balcony equipped with a view of sunset blvd. We were served lovely bites and signature cocktails. I was clearly blown away by how they managed to keep their handbags at such high quality . They looked similar to The Row without the hefty price tags. I'm talking pony hair leopard clutches, eclectic blue backpacks, classic leather satchels, hobos, and messenger bags . Their handbag line debuts Fall 2013, however there are some online retailers who have already begun carrying them. Snatch them before it's too late.
