Textile Elizabeth and James Fall 2012

Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen looked to the streets of New York City for inspiration for Textile‘s fall collection. Each look is styled to ‘je ne sais quoi” excellence with simple tees, knits with leather elbow patches, and denim with exposed zippers. Dress each look up or down with a pair of heels or sneakers and you’re set. The best part is that we won’t have to wait until fall to get our hands on these essentials – the collection is hitting stores early next week!

So after the recent release of Vans‘ brushed twill pastel Authentics, we thought it was the perfect summer shoe to adorn. So grab some glue and let’s get studding! And don’t forget to enter our giveaway, after the jump, for a chance to win a pair of our favorite kicks . . .
