About Sigrid Olsen
Floating fabrics, soft silks, colorful cashmere, and romantic retro designs: the Sigrid Olsen fashion line was the epitome of effortless elegance. The Olsen line offered everything the baby boomer generation needed to feel relaxed, comfortable, and sophisticated in a range of situations. These treasured items included gold ribbed turtleneck sweaters to add a touch of glamorous glitter, fashionable yet functional pants, sumptuous velvet jackets, and chunky hand-knit cardigans. The Olsen line also offered a handbag for every event, including soft black leather bags suitable for using at the office, and metallic leather hobo bags to add sparkle to that casual "girl about town" look for the weekends. For women looking for a way to feel funky instead of frumpy, the Olsen line had it all. Liz Claiborne Inc. purchased the company in 1999. Sadly, the faltering U.S. economy saw Sigrid Olsen stores closing their doors for good in 2008, ending 24 years of affordable fashion. Fortunately, Sigrid Olsen clothing is still widely available from the vast inventory on eBay, so you can still dress to impress in that timeless, elegant style.
