L-R: Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen wearing The Row
“A purist palette equals an effortlessly modern look.”
“Diamonds are a love
“Cream boots – your new closet essential.”
There is always that one woman at a party who is wearing a particular piece that gives you a serious pang of envy. It rarely screams “look at me!”, but is rather a subtle statement that oozes confidence. It might be a new spin on the tux jacket, an artfully cut cashmere sweater, or a simple tee in exquisite silk...
Well, this fall, the secret is out, as designers upscaled such staples for all to see – showcased here in our biggest issue to date – transforming them into true forever pieces.
The unexpected masters of this luxe simplicity are former child stars the Olsen twins who, having launched their fashion label, The Row in 2006, quickly established themselves as the go-to names for understated modern classics. Read their story in
our glorious cover shoot.
