The Many Bags of The Olsen Twins


While doing photo research yesterday to bring you this retrospective on The Many Bags of The Olsen Twins, one thing became starkly apparent: Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are ahead on…well, basically everything. Looking through pictures of them from 2007 wasn’t a trip back in time like it normally would be when dissecting a celebrity’s style; five years ago, they were both dressing like every single fashionable girl I know dresses today, and they were getting called trolls for it. Little did we know, they were just paving the way for the rest of us.


The Olsen Twins have a tendency to do the same when it comes to handbags. They were the first to carry the crazily popular Alexander Wang Rocco Bag, way back when it was called the Coco, and they were also among the first to rock the Proenza Schouler PS1 and Celine Luggage Tote. Their appreciation for a vintage Fendi crocodile tote caused the brand not only to reissue it, but also to dub it the Fendi Twins Tote. And that’s not even counting their gorgeous, obscenely priced bags for The Row. Check out all of that and more after the jump.

Just for good measure, it’s also important to have a Proenza Schouler PS1 in python, for days when Mary-Kate’s feeling extra fancy. Check out Satchi's Proenza Schouler Collection.


If there’s one thing both sisters agree about, it’s Balenciaga. Here’s Ashley, many moons ago, carrying a bicolor Balenciaga City Bag.

Mary-Kate once made a nearly destroyed pistachio green Balenciaga bag famous, but this burgundy version of the Balenciaga City Bag is in slightly better condition. Shop Balenciaga at Satchi.


Sometimes, though, the Olsens need a little more storage space. That’s when Mary-Kate opts for her Balenciaga Work Bag.


The Olsens have never been huge Chanel aficionados, but Mary-Kate’s Chanel Classic Flap in bright red is definitely worth noticing.  Check out Satchi's Lovely Chanel Collections.

Black vintage Hermes Kelly, this time on Ashley’s arm. We have one Hermes Kelly 28 in Sellier Ebene.

 On the opposite end of the Hermes size spectrum, this giant tan Hermes Birkin positively dwarfs Ashley. We have one Hermes Birkin 35 Clemence Graphitte #N.
