The Row Spring 2018 - Runway Review
September 11, 2017
Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen play by a specific set of rules when it comes to design: their own. The Row has blossomed into a thriving business thanks to the subtle elegance and approach the celebrity sisters have been able to successfully assimilate into a well-versed aesthetic. Spring spoke softly, once again, with cashmeres, mink-lined shoes and a regal lightness in fabrics used. Working primarily with floorlength cuts, the dreamy collection featured tunics and column dresses spun with silk, never too body conscious yet just enough to energize the female form. A sleek black slip dress was layered with a fishnet of dazzling beads. In separates, there were low-slung khakis and a simple ribbed tank juxtaposed some all-white outfits made from actual paper. Naturally, luxurious coats (seasonless, they would argue) reigned, including a dramatic number with an off-the-shoulder portrait collar. Not one to veer from a neutral color palette, the presence of a draped lilac dress was incredibly well received.
