autumn with elizabeth and james

>> Preview looks for the Fall 2008 collection of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's contemporary line Elizabeth and James have surfaced, with lots of solid (albeit expensive) staples in the mix, much as expected: slouchy navy boyfriend cardigans, high-waisted tweedy pants, extreme-ruffled camisoles.

Where the line continues to fall short for me is when prints are attempted — the flannel jacket with illustrated back and ruffle tiered plaid mini, for example — it's the same with the Spring collection.  The Olsens should stick to solid colors — it's what The Row does best, and it's how successes like the Elizabeth and James ostrich plume vest ($565) are birthed.
