Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen Take Their Talents to Scandinavia
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are headed to Norway. The designing duo has partnered with Scandinavian retailer Bik Bok on three capsule collections for Fall 2013 that truly reflect their iconic aesthetic. With the season's most important trends in mind, the duo drew inspiration from their own wardrobes and the modern Scandinavian “it-girl.” Based around easy layering and fine fabrics, the first collection consists of leather and wool jackets, angora knits, washed silk chiffon blouses, superfine jersey tops, and edgy accessories.
“We've enjoyed the design process with the Bik Bok team and are excited to visit Oslo and Stockholm to launch the first of three collections in August,” said Ashley. Mary-Kate was equally pleased. “Ashley and I are thrilled with our Fall 2013 Bik Bok collaboration. We feel the collection reflects our personal style and will connect with the Scandinavian girl,” she said. It's a natural look for the Olsens, who have become known for enabling women everywhere to achieve a sense of relaxed glamour and effortless elegance. Fans of the The Row and Elizabeth and James will likely be jetting off to Europe at summer's end to shop the offering, which will range in price from €24,95 to €499,95.
