Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen will launch a shoe collection in May as a part of The Row, their higher end fashion line. The collection will include seven styles with an assortment of styles and colors. The shoes will range from $850 to $1,145 in the same stores you can buy The Row now. The shoes will be made in Italy.
“Footwear was the natural next category for The Row,” said Mary Kate. “We want to provide our customers with all her essentials. We hope The Row shoe collection will do that.”
Ashley explained, “We have worked with Christian Louboutin, Manolo Blahnik, Barbara Shaum and Enzo Bonafè, among a few others. We wanted to approach footwear organically and have a better understanding of the market before launching an in-house shoe collection.”
The twins will open their second store in May in a New York City townhouse at 17 East 71st Street where the new shoe line will be sold. They opened their first store in Los Angeles, a space formerly occupied by hair stylist Sally Hershberger.
Mary Kate and Ashley had their hair done in that building as children.
