Elizabeth and James, the moody basics clothing line designed by your fave twinset M.K. n' A. Olsen, is getting on its game for Fashion's Night Out. The sisters have decided to focus their efforts in NYC for September 10's international fashion event/party with a pop-up shop in the West Village from September 10-16. This will be your first-ever chance to shop for the whole crew: under one roof you'll (temporarily) find women's, men's, shoes, jewelry, TEXTILE Elizabeth + James denim, and an exclusive pre-sale of Resort 2010 shades!
FabSugar tells us that the duo "will be making an appearance" on FNO to ring in the new shop, but we can't help but think it'll be a brief cameo on their part. Many news sites and blogs have reported that the Olsens will be at Barneys that night, in characteristically witty Barneys fashion judging a karaoke contest along with Barneys' creative director Simon Doonan, and designers Jack and Lazaro of Proenza Schouler. The rumored prizes? A PS bag and The Row leather leggings, obvs.—Alice Taranto
