First Looks|Elizabeth and James Pre-Fall 2016
This Style Editor is such a fan of Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen’s contemporary label, Elizabeth and James. As I look through the looks book I wanted everything. These ladies really know what women want and it’s always refreshing to find female designers who design for today’s women. The collection is a bit pricey, but you are sure that not every women will be wearing what you have on. The Elizabeth and James Pre-Fall 2016 collection is for it girls only.
Even though they did not show on the Spring ’16 calendar this past September we can tell they were hard at work rebranding. The duo were busy bringing their design and production teams in-house—before, the brand was licensed with an outside apparel group. Now that all operations are under one roof, the Olsens have an even bigger influence on the clothes, and it showed in their Pre-fall collection. You totally see they design clothes for themselves, creating their personal style into a strong collection. I also see the mature modest women wearing the collection.
Elizabeth and James Pre-Fall 2016
The Versatile collection is a , mix-and-match of pieces. My favorite is the pink outfit, the line has the slouchy wide-leg pants we love and the key trend for 2016. The collection is mixed with cotton tanks, plush sweaters, luxe sport satin suits, and long blazers. You will also find on offer, a few stretchy ribbed-knit dresses great for layered looks. Elizabeth and James try their hand at knitwear, with a cosy bouclé sweater with long sashes at the sides that could be looped around the waist or left trailing down. The collection has a piece for it girls and mature women to add to their already existing wardrobe.
