With the contemporary market in flux, founders Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen have implemented a broad push to bring their oh-so-specific vintage fashion and accessories edit to wholesale partners.
…Elizabeth and James, founded a decade ago by Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen, is one of those brands. In 2015, the designers took a huge step forward by bringing the label in-house after the expiration of their deal with licensee Jaya Apparel Group, subsequently revamping the collection to reflect something less merchandised and more personal. Last year, they opened the brand’s first directly owned store in The Grove, Los Angeles’ popular outdoor shopping centre, which they’re using as a sort of testing ground for new concepts.
One such experiment consisted of peppering the store with select vintage, which included band tees, jeans and sweatshirts. The lineup quickly turned into 20 percent of the store’s overall business, which spurred the company to open up vintage pop-ups at both Neiman Marcus in Beverly Hills and Bergdorf Goodman in Manhattan this summer.
“We really look at what’s happening in the market as an exciting opportunity,” Ashley says. “We know our customer, we like being able to make noise, we like being able to be disruptive a little bit. More and more, our partners are willing to hop on board with that.”…

Here’s a few exclusives I’ve uploaded recently:
- Hi, first of all I’m a huge fan of this website! It’s the best daily Olsen source. Thank you so much for having this complete olsen source! My question is about Mary Kate’s anorexia. She went to rehab on 2004 right? But when she got out of rehab, magazines kept saying that she was very skinny, specially in 2006 and 2007 and 2008. Did she go to rehab again or spoke publicly about it? And also, I saw a picture of her in 2009 in which magazines said that she was ”bloated” on it.
Thanks so much for the lovely comments! I’m glad you love the site too!
Yes Mary-Kate went to Cirque Lodge in 2004 age 18 for treatment of her Anorexia Nervosa. Her publicist at the time made a statement and her Dad did an interview for US weekly magazine on her progress which you can read here. Ashley also answered some questions in a few interviews, you can see one of them here.
There was no publicly confirmed relapse nor a confirmed admission to rehab again in either 06,07 0r 08. Mary-Kate is however very slight, she’s small framed & only 5ft – 5ft 1. Sadly relapse is very common with suffers of Anorexia, she may have relapsed again however I wouldbn’t like to say anything further as nothing was or has been confirmed.
Mary-Kate seems to be very happy today, doing very well & following her dreams.
Hi, My question is about the magazines that said that Mary Kate had an issue with cocaine and drugs, saying that she wasn’t anorexic, she was using cocaine. That was never confirmed right? Did she sue the magazines or something?
Mary-Kate was confirmed to go to rehab for Anorexia not drugs like cocaine or anything else. Tabloids tended to write that sort of thing because there wasn’t a confirmed reason for Mary-Kate to have gone to rehab at that time. Later her publicistv Michael Pagnotta released this statement:
“Mary-Kate made a very courageous, precautionary decision,” ” Mary-Kate is taking charge in making this decision. She wants to be healthy.”
You might notice in the scans section after it was confirmed she was being treated for Anorexia the drug stories just about stopped. She did not sue, however, Ashley sued the National Enquirer over this front page article.
- And what about the Heath Ledger death being related to Mary Kate? I read a lot about how she could be the one that gave him the drugs, and she sent her body guards to his place when he died and also that she didin’t want to go to the police. Can you explain to me please?
Mary-Kate was cleared by authorities of any wrong doing. Mary-Kate did not supply any drugs to him & as far as we know they were friends, not romantically linked.
In short what happened was that Heath was found in an apartment by his masseuse, (this apartment was not owned by Mary-Kate or Ashley as previously reported) his masseuse couldn’t wake him up & then called Mary-Kate 3 times before she called 911. Mary-Kate immediately sent over her bodyguards to check on heath after the call. Sadly he was later pronounced dead.
During the investigation into Heaths death Mary-Kate requested immunity which means she would never be charged with anything if she spoke with the authorities. (This is quite common with celebrity figures & does not equate guilt.) Mary-Kate did speak to the authorities, they got all the information they needed & cleared her of any wrong doing.
This is what Mary-Kate’s lawyer Michael C Miller said at the time:
“Despite tabloid speculation, Mary-Kate Olsen had nothing whatsoever to do with the drugs found in Heath Ledger’s home or his body, and she does not know where he obtained them. Regarding the Government’s investigation, at Ms Olsen’s request, we have provided the Government with relevant information including facts in the chronology of events surrounding Mr Ledger’s death and the fact that Ms Olsen does not know the source of the drugs Mr. Ledger consumed.”
