The Row Fall 2017 - Runway Review
February 16, 2017
Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen have come a long way in curating their notion for all-out unabashed luxury at The Row. When it comes to their designs, fabric rules with color used sparingly.
For fall, the collection narrowed its focus down to just white, black, cream and a single shot of red. Not a single bit of embellishment to be had. Comprised mainly of neutral hued kimono-styled coats and belted jackets, this engaging lineup was punctuated by washed gray denim, oversize trench and crisp white shirts (some embroidered with the words “dignity,” “freedom” and “unity”).
Despite its supreme elegance and exquisite craftsmanship, these pieces would look plenty comfortable worn daily—an air of anti-preciousness prevailed (the Dr. Marten-like shoes and boots also helped). The outerwear remains unmatched, from duster-length styles to double-face cashmere and leather toppers cinched at the waist. Sturdy, but always reassuring.
