What If These Brands Collaborated With The Olsen Twins?

What These Brands Would Look Like If They Collaborated With The Olsen Twins

Doubly chic, we presume

 

 

Many of us grew up watching Full House (and thanks to Netflix, we and interested generations can watch it over and over again) and a 6-month old Michelle Tanner—played by both Mary-Kate and Ashley—literally grow up before our very eyes. But who knew the fraternal pair would later become bona fide and multi-awarded designers in the fashion world?

 

“I look at old photos of me, and I don’t feel connected to them at all. I would never wish my upbringing on anyone… [We were] little monkey performers.” —Mary-Kate on fame as told to Marie Claire in 2010

 

Officially retiring from acting when they turned 18, Mary-Kate and Ashley focused their attention and efforts on building a fashion empire. In 2006 the twins debuted The Row, a luxury line of accessories and ready-to-wear apparel. And though the Olsens’ personal tastes are often a little more bohemian-bourgeois, their label reflects an arty yet minimalist aesthetic; elevated basics if you will. The Row has since earned the designers several CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) awards: Womenswear Designer of the Year in 2012 and 2015, and Accessories Designer of the Year in 2014 and again this year.

 

 

So in celebration of Mary-Kate and Ashley, and their beloved contributions to our childhood and the fashion world, we re-imagine a few looks from today’s favorite design houses and how they would look like if an Olsen’s collaboration were to happen:

 

Balenciaga

 

Because The Row is all about muted palettes

 

Raf Simons for Calvin Klein

The Olsen way: layering long and even longer pieces

 

The Row x Supreme

Could this actually happen? Maybe, maybe not

 

Louis Vuitton

 

What would Mary-Kate and Ashley do? Tone it down perhaps

 

Gucci

 

Somebody needs to make this happen
