Relax, Just Do It

Elizabeth and James spring 2013 collection

Relaxed was the name of the game at the Olsens’ intimate presentation yesterday afternoon. As friends and editors filed into low-slung benches, the fresh-faced twins mingled with guests, eventually sliding into their own seats as the show quietly began.

Models strutted and posed against Industria Superstudio’s exposed brick walls, putting the spotlight on the comfy-luxe pieces. Linen trenches resembling bathrobes, androgynous jackets, and jacquard blazers alternated over cropped taffeta trousers (some wide leg, others slim and cuffed). Flat, multicolor-strap sandals gave each tailored look an unfussy vibe reminiscent of the sisters themselves. And while classic black and white dominated the end of the show, it was the rich, exotic hues — said to be inspired by sunrises and sunsets around the world — that stood out.
