The Row Fall 2011 RTW


Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's latest collection for their high-end brand, The Row, has taken luxe to a whole other level.  While the clothes retain their famous sleek lines and the impeccable tailoring of seasons past, it was the textile choices that gave them a new, covetable grandeur.  Furs, cashmere, and embroidery abounded; but sleek belts, and flats from the Olsens' collaboration with Toms kept the looks grounded.  Some of the standout pieces included a shiny maroon crocodile skin top, and a chunky knit paired with a lace ankle length maxi skirt.  It is also notable that this season is the first time the label has ventured into using color; in previous seasons they had only employed a neutral palette for their clothes.  I would say that they did so with considerable success, as the mustard pieces were among my favorites.  This fashion week marked the twins' first foray into handbags, as well.  Although I haven't seen any detailed pictures of them, claims that the purses have a "clean, unadorned look," and will priced comparatively to Hermes.  Mary-Kate and Ashley are my favorite celebrities-turned-designers (not that there's much competition), and I thoroughly enjoyed seeing them elaborate on their original minimalist aesthetic for fall 2011.
