We have a dark secret to admit: we can't help adoring those billionaire moppets known as the Olsens. Their huge eyes (and pocketbooks to match) get us every time. We didn't even mind when they decided to become designers especially when -- unlike some celeb lines we could name -- some of the ultra simple and versatile pieces from their collection The Row even look like Mary Kate and Ashley may have actually had a hand in designing them.
Now it seems the diminutive duo are joining the ever growing roster of womenswear designers who are hopping on the menswear bandwagon (Alexander Wang, Gareth Pugh, Giles Deacon), and as much as we hate to admit it, we're kind of excited. When the girls cited Lanvin and Tom Ford as influences, and imagined their customer to be an "older, masculine man", we got a tingly feeling all over.
