The Row presents minimalist dream with a voluminous line-up of styles for the Spring season
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s The Row Spring 2019 RTW collection was a serene, muted retreat amid the chaos of New York Fashion Week. The collection was presented again at their studio on the lower West Side. The Olsens have long preferred that their collections speak for themselves, best done directly, intimately, and quietly.
Some pieces had an architectural feeling with clean lines and hard edges, while other silky, voluminous fabrics looked regal and sumptuous. Spring 2019 was about the careful and considered progression of the extreme volume play that the Olsens have been so beautifully considering these past few seasons, with much emphasis on exploring every kind of silk fabrication, quiet handwork.
The palette of creams, grays, and blacks conveyed elegance. It’s a quietly spectacular collection that demands closer inspection.
There are slip-on coats tailored to glide to the floor, billowing gazar dresses to be layered atop wide pants or full skirts, and robe-like gowns with regally upturned collars.
