Monday Muse: Elizabeth & James Gets Artsy for Spring 2017

A lot of Olsen twin fans love the dynamic duo for their singular style (they’re CFDA Award-winning designers, thank you very much), but not everyone can afford to pick up pieces from the twins’ line The Row. That’s why the savvy designers have their contemporary label, Elizabeth & James. And while the label had skewed a little more downtown in past seasons, for spring 2017, the line is inching closer to the twins’ personal style. With long, floor-skimming pieces, airy fabrics and a monochrome palette, it looks like fans everywhere will be able to get a piece of the Olsen twins’ style at a more accessible price point.

After opening a the very first Elizabeth & James store at L.A. megamall The Grove, it seems that the twins are bringing their simplified style to all of the brands under their umbrella. For spring 2017, each and every look was shown in a head-to-toe monochrome, whether it was in blush, black, neutral tan, or white — and even a bright, bold pink. It was very much The Row, but with a bit of youth and fun infused.

And as the brand expands into handbags and more shoes, clothes and accessories alike are taking on a more hand-hewn, artisanal feel. Textures are getting more touchable and luxe, including embossed croc and sumptuous suede tassels on bags. Layers were another story, but even casual Olsen followers know that the two love to pile it on. But this spring, those layers will be light and airy: even when looks had pants, a dress, a vest, and a jacket, each lightweight layer seemed to float around the body, not weight it down. Maxi-length slip dresses, floor-skimming satin trousers, and longline duster coats will be standout pieces, but those looking for trendy pieces among the classics will gravitate towards a blushing silk bomber and striped pajama pants. The Olsen twins know that there are women looking to them for style advice, and with this collection, they’re giving everyone the pieces to build an Olsen-approved wardrobe.
