The Row Resort 2013
Despite many years at the helm of their super-brand The Row, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen don’t need to prove anything to anyone after the announcement that they were the recipients of the CFDA Award for women’s wear, and the Resort 2013 collection is proof that the award was given to the right brand. The Row is synonymous with New York cool, and their latest collection is no doubt one to lust after. Focusing on sharp tailoring, clean lines, and boyish cuts, the Olsens are clear on their modus operandi – continuously create luxurious, chic, and tasteful clothing, whilst remaining true to themselves and their brand. The presence of white and black was no surprise, but the pleasant inclusion of magenta, murky sea foam, yellow ochre and brown created a collection fit for the ultimate in fashion frenzied fiend, creating a look that is adaptable for any time of year. The slouchy look that is so associated with the girls is contrasted with the sharper lines, but regardless of this topsy-turvy approach, it works seamlessly. Congratulations Mary-Kate and Ashley, you definitely deserve it.
