With news of a fragrance launch with Sephora coming in March, business seems to be robust at Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s Elizabeth and James. As for their spring lineup, it was a seamless combination of sophisticated simplicity with notes of the exotic, consistent with the worldly ease of The Row but delivered appropriately for the contemporary market. Mary-Kate said that she and her sister had been looking at images of sunrises and sunsets from around the globe, which translated into beautiful shades of purple, pink and gold, plus a fair amount of black and white. Two key looks were linen robes and boyish wrap blazers over shiny taffeta pants cropped at the ankle. Worn with flat metallic sandals and big wood bangles, the overall feel conveyed a breezy, continental polish.
