lucy...this stuff is defintely more expensive than i thought...
the sequined dress is $495 and the fur coat is $795!
and $275 for a pair of jeans is ridiculous...
earnest sewn and other designers use premium ringspun japanese denim, and their jeans are $150-$200...

Wow, I was really hoping to get my hands on the sequined dress too. I was hoping it was no more than $250. It seems like these prices are even higher than the Row, wasn't it supposed to be a less expensive sportswear line? What happened to that idea! But aside from the price, I think I'm really proud of the girls because after looking at their peers lines (the Millers' twenty8twelve), what the Olsens are putting out is really impressive.

I think the twins may be out of touch with reality regarding what's actually considered affordable. They spend thousands on couture so I guess by their standard $500 for a dress is small change.

miu miu and prada are different brands, but even with the house's experience, quality, bla,bla,bla... i still think it damaged what, to that point, i thought of prada
ever since, i jsut see miu miu as a watered down version of the creative process behind prada, that produces daring-it-bags and shoes with very similar prize tags.
Miuccia Prada said that Miu Miu is meant for a younger woman's sense of style

I agree, which leads me to yet again question Ashley's quote from this WWD article: "...Elizabeth and James is intended for a woman who wants a designer garment but cannot afford it."

If a woman cannot afford a designer garment, how does she think they could find the money to pay for a pair of $275 jeans?

It doesn't look the same at all...it's a different concept I think. The row is supposed to be a high end basics line that's very minimal. It doesn't produce a lot and has good production values...I don't know about E&J but it doesn't seem to be a pet product, more of a commercial line even though it's higher price than a lot of commercial lines.
