The Olsens add sunglasses to The Row
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have added sunglasses to their ever-growing collection of clothing and accessories. The line is being done in collaboration with luxury eyewear maker Linda Farrow (other collaborations include Dries Van Noten and Sofia Kokosalaki) and will be out for spring 2010.
The four styles launching next season aren’t like the gigantic accessories we’re used to seeing on the fashion plate sisters. Unlike the huge bags, giant clunky ankle boots and overwhelming fur vests the two sport, the shades are actually very classic and sleek.
There is a John Lennon-esque circular metal style and large rounded-square “black out” frames – perfect for leaving on during a fashion show.
The Row sunglasses range from $325 to $390 and will be available at Barneys and Bergdorf Goodman.
