Mary-Kate and Ashley’s range of four sunglasses, available for S/S 2010, will be an expansion to their luxury label The Row.
The Olsens are no strangers to accessories collaborations: their other label Elizabeth and James has featured shoes designed with Steve Madden and jewellery with Robert Lee Morris.
Mary-Kate and Ashley are in safe hands with eyewear queen Linda Farrow, who has collaborated with designers such as Luella, Matthew Williamson and Dries van Noten.
The Row sunglasses will initially be available in four styles: super-sized square frames, a brown-rimmed pair with a vintage feel, classic aviators, and a Sixties style. “We tried to find certain pieces that look good on more than one face,” said Ashley. Wonder twin powers activate!
