This Season, The Row Does It All
New York Fashion Week was quite the installment for Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s luxury clothing brand, The Row. They presented a new collection, a new handbag line AND a new collaboration! Now, where to begin!? Let’s start with their Fall/Winter 2011 collection, which was beyond amazing! The Row is well known for it’s beautifully crafted, high-quality basics—usually in neutral tones with a few colored pieces thrown in here and there. But, this season the design duo took The Row to the next level. They threw their devotees for a loop, and quite literally made us do a double take. The collection included indulgent furs, leathers, velvets and silks, all in an amazing color palette—blacks (of course), whites, browns, blues, and even a marigold color. Oh and I cannot forget my most favorite color, leopard print! I feel like this collection possesses the true Olsen style we all know, love and covet…
Now let’s move on to their new handbag collection as the Olsens are KNOWN for their great taste in bags. It’s no wonder their handbag collection is absolutely divine! According to Barney’s New York, you will definitely need a loan to purchase one of these babies. They are saying the price range is right up there with the Hermčs Birkin bag—I know, my heart just fell into my stomach too. But hey, a girl can dream and she can definitely be lustful!
And finally, here is something you can afford from The Row, a pair of shoes! According to WWD, The Row has teamed up with TOMS Shoes to create multiple pairs of shoes with prices ranging from $98 to $150. I don’t know about you, but my wallet can definitely afford that, especially since each pair of shoes you buy, another pair of shoes is given to a child in need. Hello philanthrophy—TOMS love you, The Row loves you, and MyFDB love you too!
