Celebrity twins Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who already run a successful fashion label, have designed four vintage-inspired styles of eyewear.
The designs are being launched in collaboration with top eyewear maker Linda Farrow and will be sold through their luxury label The Row. The line – described as ‘sleek and sassy’ – will hit the shelves in Spring 2010. The much anticipated collection will feature a classic aviator, 1960s inspired round glasses, an oversized square frame and vintage inspired brow-line shades.
The 23-year-old twins, who have made oversized shades a signature part of their style, plan to see how the designs sell before expanding the range next year. Ashley said: “We’re testing the market first and obviously these are four very different silhouettes, so we’re seeing what people are responding to and we’ll open up a couple more silhouettes for autumn.”
The collection comes after the duo were praised by the Council of Fashion Designers (CFDA) earlier this year for their contribution to the U.S. fashion industry.
