Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen to Design Affordable Handbags


Fashion icon twins Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen are bringing their luxury handbag collection from their Elizabeth and James line to the masses. They’re reportedly working on designing affordable handbags.

Women’s Wear Daily reports that the new handbags will come at a much lower price (that is, when compared to their ‘The Row’ bags and purses that range from $35,000 to almost $60,000 a pop).

The new line will reportedly include a chic range of messenger bags, shoppers, satchels, clutches, backpacks, wallets and more. The items will range from $125 to $395 for small leather products like wallets and clutches, while bigger items like bags will go for as low as $395 or as high as $625.

Mary-Kate told WWD: “We wanted the price point to be strong. The price point is below [Alexander] Wang and [Phillip] Lim but above Marc [Jacobs] and Tory [Burch].” Ashley added, “And Rebecca Minkoff. We wanted these bags to be affordable.”
