My favourite looks from The Row (see the rest of the collection here)
The Row is really the only brand I can stomach that has come from celebrities-turned-designers, for the reason that the Olsen twins seem truly passionate about what they put out (using only the highest quality materials), as well as being knowledgeable about how the fashion industry actually works. This season was nothing less than outstanding; the young designer duo broke through their comfort zone of the usual upper-class New York City chic and brought something new to the table. Spectators were treated to the styles made for the fashion conscious woman travelling the world, inspired by different rich cultures – giving off a feel of empowerment. It began with draped dresses of light, airy fabrics on a palette of navy and burnt orange, almost sheer below knee length dresses were next with embroidery detailing of leaves, to go onto well-structured dresses with geometric patterns, ending with chunky knits and a darker colour scheme. Headwear played a big part of the collection, some with streaming fabric that hit the floor, others with a black birdcage type veil (what a fashionable way to keep away the mosquitos, no?) but my favourite part of the show were the loafers, bringing us back to the Olsen’s aesthetic of laid-back luxury. A firm favourite, always.
