Not content with having captured both the 'tween' and high-end clothing markets, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have produced a less expensive but still trendy line, Elizabeth and James. Named after their two siblings, this collection for women mixes uptown and downtown elements as well as tailoring techniques from women's and men's apparel. Look for smartly tailored blazers, vests, shimmery mini-skirts and dresses as well as basics such as oversized tees, tanks and hoodies. Standouts include the Plume vest (above; HK$5,900), with cascades of feathers. The orange, one-shouldered Parachute dress (left; HK$3,900) would be a good buy for summer. The collection is available from Lane Crawford, IFC Mall, Central, tel: 2118 3388.
