Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have expanded their growing fashion empire yet again.

The Row’s online home is getting beautified. TheRow.com relaunches this afternoon with a newer, easier-to-navigate e-tail store (above), a personal shopper to answer any questions, and online exclusives like unseen collection images, details of their recent TOMS shoe drop in Honduras (following the TOMS x The Row collaboration), and videos of all their collections. Pieces from those collections are now on offer, too, including the new bags the Olsen sisters recently debuted. Each purchase of one of those—which can, admittedly, set you back somewhere in the neighborhood of $39,000—will net you a free pair of Row sunglasses, too.
