best of NY: The Row aw14

Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen's brand The Row usually doesn't garnish much attention at fashion week, mostly because the over hyped designers steal the headlines. But it doesn't matter for the Olsens because they have a quiet, confident outlook on fashion. The earthy tones of the collection, along with the long draped garments, paints a picture of a city dweller escaping to a secluded beach house in Montauk or the Hamptons. The skies are overcast, the storm is coming in from the sea, and she is wrapped in oversized wools, reading a book and sipping herbal tea in front of a fire. The Row's collection for AW14 is wearable, practical and pared down. It may appear that they design older than their years, but I see the seeds for a lifestyle brand a la Calvin Klein.
