The Row Fall 2020 - Runway Review
February 11, 2020
Much like their sensuous designs at The Row, Ashley Olsen and Mary-Kate Olsen sought to pay tribute to the late sculptor Beverly Pepper, who minimalist shapes were evocative of the fall collection. With several of the American artist's pieces dotting the show venue, models showcased, in powerful form, the a chicly urban ethos that reinforced the brand's clean lines, gentle volumes and impeccable tailoring. A palette of mostly neutrals -- brown, black, grey, beige and white -- were largely featured, a pop of bright blue serving as an occasional static point.
Right off the bat, an exquisite coat with mandarin collar was fashioned from a textured fabric -- a nod to tactile chic when paired with a simple tunic dress over matching trousers. A ribbon of tailoring wove its way through a lineup of mannish suits, collarless jackets and pleated baggy pants (many complemented by cashmere coats and flowing trenches). And while masculine, the fabrics were light as could be -- perfect for that woman seeking uncomplicated refinement.
