Olsen Twins Give Rare Interview with Net-a-Porter's The Edit [The Edit]
The Olsen twins were once everywhere you look (Full House fans, where you at?), but these days, the 30-year-old sisters prefer their behind-the-scenes roles as creative directors of their two luxury labels, The Row and Elizabeth and James. In a rare interview with Net-a-Porter's The Edit, the sisters confirmed that which we already know to be true: They dislike being photographed, they have no desire to be on social media and they have maintained a focus on tailoring, quality and comfort in their work. Lesser-known tidbits unveiled include the fact that their passion for designing stemmed from their years of having clothing tailored to their petite frames, and Mary-Kate relieves her stress by horseback riding (yep, like her character in the 1994 classic How the West Was Fun).
Ivanka Trump Jewelry Is Back at Neiman Marcus [Racked]
The Ivanka Trump fine jewelry collection is back on Neiman Marcus' shelves (well, it's virtual ones, at least). The brand disappeared from the department store's website in early February, with many speculating that the company had listened to shoppers participating in the #GrabYourWallet boycott, which urged shoppers to stay away from shops which sold any of the Trump brands. When asked about the initial disappearance of Ivanka Trump product, a spokesperson gave the following statement to The Hollywood Reporter: "Neiman Marcus has a very small Ivanka Trump precious jewelry business which is comprised 100 percent of consigned merchandise (merchandise owned by the vendor). Based on productivity we continuously assess whether our brands are carried in stores, on our website, or both." In an interview with Refinery29 earlier this week, company president Abigail Klem stated that the company has seen record sales since Donald Trump's election, so perhaps Neiman Marcus is simply looking to cash in on this spike.
