BOY MEETS GIRL
New York:  We’re not sure if Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are yoga devotees, but their latest Elizabeth & James collection was a lesson in Sthira Sukham—strength and ease in equal measure. F/W 13 saw the duo evolve their little sister line closer to their high-end success story The Row, with  a concise selection of pared-back, well-put-together essentials that felt a little more grown-up than previous seasons, but no less vital. The strength came in the form of a sharp, slim-cut skirt-over-trousers suit, a cropped Cristobal jacket with stiff patent leather sleeves and a badass pair of black leather dungarees, while floor-grazing Prince of Wales check pants, collar-less teddy bear coats and crew neck knits brought the ease. With the inclusion of a few feminine touches by way of a beautiful cranberry lace pencil skirt and a wool poodle skirt, E&J have all the cool girl bases covered. — Natalie Shukur
