NEW YORK — From their new space in the West Village here, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen walk the perimeter of the Elizabeth and James showroom admiring their latest endeavor — the brand’s first handbag collection.
The expansive line — which includes satchels, shoppers, messenger bags, backpacks, hobo bags, cross-body bags, clutches, pouches and wallets —has been in the works for about 18 months, according to the design duo, who co-own Dualstar Entertainment Group, the parent company of Elizabeth and James and The Row.
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
