First jeans, then jewelry. Now Elizabeth and James–Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen’s contemporary line–is introducing eye wear.
The two styles–the Hudson, a bold aviator; and the Fairfax, a perfect cat’s eye–retail at $185 and will hit stores in the near future. (The aviators are meant to be unisex.) There’s also a limited edition pair–featuring 24K gold mirror lenses–going for $425.
While I personally prefer to find the The Row on sale than Elizabeth and James at full price, there’s no denying that the latter boasts a kind of cult following amongst certain fashion-obsessed women. I have plenty of friends who say E and J is their go-to contemporary brand.
And when it comes to sunglasses, the Fairfax style is one of the best cat-eyes out there, regardless of the label. I’m definitely planning on picking up a pair and wearing them with a boyfriend blazer from The Row.
The full-on collection, which hits stores next spring, will be priced from $155 to $265.
