"Pre-fall is really about updating our girl's closet and offering what
she's buying right now," Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen said at a preview of their new collection for Elizabeth and James
. While the design duo is known for taking the concept of subtle, everyday luxury to the next level with The Row, they definitely have a bit more fun with their little-sister line. The loosened-up attitude came across via casually cool pieces, including a bomber jacket in a menswear jacquard with neon trim, as well as blazers cut from another jacquard with a slightly psychedelic, Pop floral pattern. Styling was key. The still-popular crop top is the kind of thing you wouldn't imagine coming from these sisters, but the way they layered it over a crisp white T-shirt and then paired that with a wrap skirt and slim trousers (yes, all shown together) felt fresh. Accessories are an important part of the E and J business, and they were excited to announce the launch of handbags for Fall. Black patent boots with thick white soles and delicate "shaman" rings were the definite standouts.
