In recent years, Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen have more or less dropped out of the entertainment world spotlight. For many of us, their absence left a big hole in our hearts. However, the twin sisters haven't completely disappeared from public consciousness.
No, they've fine-tuned their design sensibilities to create uber-successful (and uber-expensive) CFDA-award winning fashion line The Row. And while most of us can't afford a $55,000 backpack, we can still salivate over the hyper-minimalist, ultra-luxe threads. Even their Elizabeth and James line can be a tad costly for those us struggling to maintain a budget.
But thankfully, that inaccessibility appears to be a thing of the past, at least when it comes to accessories. The two recently unveiled AMK x SM (which stands for Ashley Mary-Kate x StyleMint), their new collaborative line of affordable wares for JewelMint. And by affordable, we mean everything is under $40! (We'll give you time to recover from that bit of info).
Choice pieces in this exclusive collection include a simple, yet beautiful gold handchain, a metallic silver clutch, and a sleek drop lariet.
In a recent interview with Lucky, the two shared their design philosophy. "We focused on minimalist designs that can be mixed, matched and layered, yet are strong enough to wear on their own," says Mary Kate. Like the twins' designs from their other lines, these new pieces, which were inspired by and named after celestial formations, are refined and elegant, the perfect statement pieces to wear for years to come.
Now, we've only got one question: is it gift giving season yet?
