Elizabeth and James Launches First Handbag Line

Elizabeth and James is one of my most favorite brands. It is modern, unique, contemporary yet still comes across elegant and trendy. 

Elizabeth and James has an expansive line of beautifully draped clothing, spectacular sunnies and sparkly jewels. This Spring, Elizabeth and James is even going to start a new venture into the beauty market by launching a new perfume to be sold at Sephora. 

Can Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen do wrong? 

The Row, Olsenboye, StyleMint, TEXTILE Elizabeth and James and Elizabeth and James are all such amazing brands with completely different visions. In short, Mary-Kate and Ashley can clothe every kind of girl/woman. Whatever your personal style is, they for sure have something that will suit you.

It was released on WWD that Elizabeth and James is finally launching their first bag line! This is some of the most exciting designer news I've heard so far in 2013. 

Check out below for some photos and some experts from WWD.

Depending on which of those materials is used, the Elizabeth and James bag line, which will hit stores in July, ranges from $125 to $395 for small leather goods and $395 to $625 for bags.

“We’ve always wanted to do handbags, but we really wanted to understand the market first and what was missing from the market and what’s already existing on the market,” Ashley said as her sister, listening intently, pushed aside her venti Starbucks cup.

“We wanted the price point to be strong,” Mary-Kate said, jumping in. “The price point is below [Alexander] Wang and [Phillip] Lim but above Marc [Jacobs] and Tory [Burch].”


“And Rebecca Minkoff,” Ashley interrupted. “We wanted these bags to be affordable.”


“When it comes down to it our eye definitely goes to simplicity…and strong hardware and branding,” Mary-Kate said. “In this market, I think it’s important to offer color and special materials. The great thing about suede and haircalf is they take color so beautifully.”

Calling the collection “sophisticated” yet “fashionable,” Ashley explained that while there certainly are “pops of color,” the palette is somewhat neutral and “wearable.”
