THE ANTI FAST-FASHION

Posted Aug 29 2011 @ 04:23 PM

Mary-Kate Olsen was photographed leaving The Bowery Hotel in NYC on August 27, and is apparently still in her button-down phase. MK wore her favorite pair of Earnest Sewn skinny jeans (for a similar pair, grab either Current/Elliot's The Skinny Jean in Loved or Kasil Workshop's Benatar in Hitchhiker) along with an oversized white button-down (like Robbi & Nikki's Jersey Contrast Blouse in White), and then slipped into a pair of black heels. Toting a black leather handbag, MK accessorized with a black and gold watch, a pair of black aviators, and her favorite green and gold gemstone ring. For a similar look, try Femme Metale Jewelry's Carnelian Caged Gem Ring in Red. The Olsens seem to be all over the press lately for their numerous fashion lines, with Mary-Kate recently speaking out to British newspaper The Telegraph about their line The Row. Says MK: "It's not fast fashion. We pay so much attention to the fit and the quality and the details. It takes a lot of discipline. But we've always been very driven, and we enjoy what we do. It's what we know." Ashley went on to elaborate about how the twins used to have adult clothes from high fashion designers such as Chanel altered to fit their petite frames. She said: "We loved it! We'd go through racks and racks of clothes, and hours of fittings. When you cut something down that small, it has to be precise. So we've always been really interested in fit. And over the years we've become more educated in fabrics and make, and appreciating those small details. That's where we start from now, always - what feels right." Have any of you tried on any pieces from Mary-Kate and Ashley's lines?
