Sisters Amanda and Melanie Kain Grow Up
Like many sisters who are three years apart, Amanda and Melanie Kain—who now helm the sophisticated-but-chill line Kain Label—weren’t exactly pals for most of their childhood. “We had completely different personalities and interests. It wasn’t until I went to college that we began to connect,” Melanie explains. “Now we’re best friends, and we always like to joke that we’re the same person.” But it turns out photos do exist of times when they weren’t fighting over who got to play the princess and who got stuck with the witch. Relive some of that good stuff right here.
Amanda: “I can’t believe we’re guilty of the matching-outfit trend. Melanie’s haircut is pretty epic. My mother has had this same exact haircut for more than 30 years!"
Melanie: “The sisters Kain just say no to superstitions.”
Amanda: “This photo pretty much sums up our childhood. Mel was always the angel, and I always had attitude about everything.”
Amanda: “Here I am again with the attitude! She’s three years older than I am, and I always looked up to her when it came to style. I have vivid memories of her being completely immersed in her issues of Vogue. She taught me everything I needed to know about all the cool trends and designers, but I like to think the roles are somewhat reversed now!”
Melanie: “Sisters that vest together, stay together!”
Amanda: “The only person in the world I can travel with is my sister. This picture was from our recent trip to Paris. All we did was shop and eat! She’s the only person in the world that appreciates the same exact things that I do.”
