Move over, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen! You're not the sole sisters with a high-end clothing collection. The Spring/Summer 2016 collection from Kendall and Kylie Jenner's namesake clothing line is coming as soon as Feb. 1. Based on the available visual evidence —basically Instagram teaser pics— and advance intel, this range will fall more in line with M-K and A's Elizabeth & James brand than the Jenner Sisters' own previous collabs with fast fashion and mall retailers like Topshop and PacSun. Are The Jenners about to make a play for the contemporary high-end market, previously cornered by The Olsens? That's a distinct possibility and they are just getting started.
The Kendall and Kylie collection will be sold on their site, as well as high-end retail outposts like Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, Shopbop, Lord & Taylor, and Revolve, according to Fashionista.
It appears that the Jenners are expanding outside their teen-centric fanbase, much like the Olsen Twins did as they grew up. The photos we've seen suggest we can expect edited, tailored, and dressier pieces moreso than the self-referential crop tops and leggings of Kendall + Kylie in 2015 and in their co-branded, fast fashion collections.
Here's a round up of the Kendall + Kylie clothing line teaser photos we've seen so far in 2016.
You can never go wrong with a curve-hugging, lace-detail LBD. As Jenner teased, "Soon!" The Kendall + Kylie official Instagram has been ramping up its presence, posting plenty of fresh images, teasing the offerings. Of course, this Jenner has been sharing the line on her personal Instagram, since she is all about promoting her side hustles like a consummate professional!
Look at the tailoring, the clean cuts, and and all of that volume. Clearly, the sisters have upscaled their vibe and their vision. These '70s inspo pieces are so lovely. Will the public respond to the Jenners' attempt at serious fashion? Time will tell but the sisters seem on the right track.
Details, baby! This white dress looks like it took its inspo from something their big sis Kim Kardashian wore a few years ago while celebrating her bday in Las Vegas.
It's a tad inspired, right?
Here's a closer look at a Kylie Jenner teaser photo.
How cool! You get to see the laced dress IRL and witness how it moves on the body, courtesy of Kylie! This range appears to be less about cutesy, California casual pieces in favor of extremely tailored and chic ones.
I see lots of black and white. That color palette is always chic and in style. It's more proof that the Sisters Jenner are elevating their game and are being seriously fashion forward with their eponymous set. Since this collection is linked to their names, it's as though they have no choice but to take it to the next level.
Kendall Jenner's black romper is so stylish and modern, as is the flowing, pink topper.
The office is cool! And that looks like a pile of clothes on the desk. #Worklife.
You can certainly see Kendall's "classic"influence and Kylie's "street" style in these pieces. I like what I see so far. It's more grown up but crazy wearable.
Remember this. It took The Olsen Twins a minute to dominate the fashion world. It wouldn't be unheard of for The Jenners to occupy their korner of that world.
