Bohemian is a word that comes up time and time again when talking about Ash Footwear Collections. The AW16 Collection has a big focus on the bohemian spirit and style and in honor of this, we’re featuring the queens of bohemian dressing, The Olsen Twins.
The child stars have carved out a career for themselves that has given them icon status around the world, having conquered not only the entertainment industry but the fashion industry too.
Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen first appeared on our TV screens in the late eighties, sharing the role of baby Michelle Tanner in the program Full House. This launched their TV careers and once the show came to an end they continued to star in various TV and film roles, as well as launching their own company, Dualstar, through which would go on to produce their own films.
Being the fashion icons that they are, it was only a matter of time before they launched their own label, Elizabeth & James, in 2007. This contemporary label was followed by their couture collection, The Row, which has received critical acclaim from it’s first season and has won two CFDA Awards – Womenswear Designer of the Year in 2012 and Accessories Designer of the Year in 2014.
The Olsen’s much emulated look is so distinct and really encapsulates the attitude of the Ash girl too. Channel their style with classic and chic shapes in modern textures. The Kate Boots will be perfect for this. The twins also enjoy wearing tailoring with a feminine edge. Work this look with a pair of the classic lace up Wonder Shoes.
