For the most part, I think Elizabeth & James is a pretty recognizable brand now. In 2007, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen came together to create the fashion label. Their goal was to design clothing and accessories with a contemporary look and a luxury feel. Personally, I am a huge fan of the line. The clothes are particularly appealing to me. I love their vintage vibe, simple shapes, and overall casual feeling. They look very nice, but they are what I call “no fuss”. Accessories like jewelry, shoes, and sunglasses are also in the mix. But it looks like Elizabeth & James will be adding even more to their varied lineup. You have probably guessed by now! Elizabeth & James is now offering handbags!
So far, I am pleased with the handbag styles they are offering. They are simple and chic, yet not at all stuffy. In fact, these handbags provide a nice balance between masculine and feminine. Below you will find a couple of examples. You will see what I mean!
Elizabeth & James Lizard Hobo. $485
Super soft lambskin is accented with lizard embossed leather on this classic hobo style. The shape is clean and simple, with just the right amount of slouch in the middle. Perfect for every day!
Elizabeth & James Drawstring Sling. $445
Classic drawstring meets functional knapsack. Particularly unique, however, is the pairing of ruby red leather with rose gold hardware. Beautiful!
The collection: $445 to $625
Available for Pre-Order at Neiman Marcus!
