The Row: Frankly Gorgeous - NBC New York

Fall 2014

The Row: Frankly Gorgeous



    Designers Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen stayed in the background, letting their clothing do the talking, and it does indeed. Their third collection is clean and creative, with a touch of edge.

    With less than 20 looks, The Row presented a concise collection of pants, jackets, dresses and some divine leather tops in a range of black, white and a slightly slate-hued navy blue.  Such simplicity brought out the careful texturing of embossed python, rich wool and sheer silk. 

    Even the show's front row, quite impressive for a debut show, remained devoid of much hyped up glitz, populated by the sophisticated players of the A-list, including guileless acolyte but obviously fashionable Carey Mulligan, chic stalwart Chloe Sevigny and Ashley's boyfriend and The Hangover star, Justin Bartha, who was there to simply cheer on his girl. 

    We anticipate the pieces' inclusion in many an editorial this fall, outlining the current-minded classic essentials every woman should have in her closet, but it will be the truly chic eye that takes note and snatches up every single one.
