Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen twins will be gracing Elle’s UK April issue.
Mary Kate and Ashley have shot a collector and regular edition cover each. Photographed by Alexei Hay, the two showcase their distinctly different styles in glittering designs from Prada and Dolce & Gabbana amongst others, continuing the fashion-fest inside the magazine for a further 10 pages.
The pair have successfully made the transition from child stars, to ‘It girl’ celebrity to respected and successful fashion designers with impeccable and creative vision.
Their luxury label ‘The Row’ shows at New York Fashion week, and unlike many celebrity brands, their work is their own. “We are perfectionists. We’ve always wanted to be closely involved with everything, totally hands on – that’s why it works. If we step away, it stops working. I know it sounds controlling, but that’s how it has to be.”
The Row was launched in 2007 with the mission to create the perfect basic but luxurious t-shirt, and The Row takes its name from the historic ‘Savile Row’.
The line has expanded to include a complete range of sophisticated essentials, from the perfect pair of leather leggings and evening dresses to elegantly tailored knitwear and outerwear.
However their line doesn’t come cheap, a basic T-shirt sells for £195, and a bag can cost up to £4000 on Net-a-Porter.
