Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen Launch Handbag Line That Doesn’t Cost A Year’s Salary

In 2011, sister design duo Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen introduced a $39,000 backpack to the market through their The Row label. And while a majority of critics questioned the jaw-dropping price, the bags became one of their best sellers.

But let’s be real, unless you’re insanely wealthy, or just insane, it’s safe to say that owning a handbag designed by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen is probably not going to be a reality for most of us.

But not all is lost.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen just launched an affordable handbag line through their contemporary label Elizabeth & James.

With prices ranging from $125 for small leather goods to $625, the line will offer an array of bags in Italian suede, leather and New Zealand lambskin.

Explaining the price points of their latest handbag line, 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].”

In the words of En Vogue, thank you Mary-Kate and Ashley, for coming “back to reality.”
