Over the last several years, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, 33, have done their best to stay as private as possible. They don't have personal social media accounts, don't give a lot of interviews, and don't make a lot of public appearances. That's not to say they don't do anything since they retired from acting back in 2012. The pair are now fashion designers with their high-end women’s lifestyle brand known as Elizabeth and James, as well as a high-end unisex fashion line called The Row.
More recently, the Olsen twins made a rare public appearance in order to promote an upcoming collaboration. This past weekend, the twins took part in an in-house panel discussion with Kohl's CEO Michelle Gass. The collaboration will be between Kohl's and Elizabeth and James, which launches this month.
One photo on Elizabeth and James' official Instagram page showed the twins smiling and laughing alongside Gass during the panel discussion. The post was captioned with, "The start of a beautiful friendship Elizabeth and James x Kohl’s launches November 7th!"
The Instagram post of this panel discussion had followers and fans alike super excited for different reasons. Some were eager for the collaboration's impending release so that they could get their hands on the coveted items. But many more were happy to see the twins appearing to be happy while working.
When the collaboration between Kohl's and Elizabeth and James was revealed earlier this year, twin Ashley discussed the matter at length.
"Kohl’s is doing a great job with innovation and thinking differently about omnichannel retail. We have always seen Elizabeth and James speaking to a much larger audience and this new business model with Kohl’s will allow us to achieve that. Mary-Kate and I are excited to work with them building out additional lifestyle categories and curating spaces that will bring a new shopping experience to our customer," she explained.
We're not only excited to see what the collaboration produces, but also from seeing the Olsen twins making such a public appearance once again!
