Review: Elizabeth and James Fall 2008
Holt Renfrew is now carrying the Elizabeth and James Fall 2008 collection. If you don't know anything about the label, it's co-designed by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who also serve as the company's muses.
The label is a mix of masculine and feminine with short blazers, ruffled blouses, slim pants and girl tees. It really reflects a New York City style- very androgynous if you mix up the pieces but can be really girly. I get how it reflects the twins' styles- MK's Downtown look with Ashley's Uptown glamour but I feel that it is more of a uniformed look that tries too hard to look put-together. Separately, the pieces are stunning, but together they look forced and and uninspiring. I feel like I've seen many of these looks before and done better.
