Ensconced as I am in front of my TV, watching the entirety of Sons of Anarchy season 6, I have taken time to check out The Row at NYFW.
No apologies for featuring The Row yet again as S/S 2015 is another fabulous collection for grown up fashionista’s to lust after.
Vogue’s comments on The Row for S/S 2015 pretty much sum up my own views:
Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen of The Row, presented a collection this morning that had its audience wondering why we didn’t wear clothes like this every day…
The fabrics seem like a good place to start. They oozed consideration and expense. Silk shantung organza, silk burette, canvas boucle, slubbed linen blends all rendered into some seriously beautiful shapes.
There wasn’t a zip or a button in sight. Balloon sleeved shirts were wrapped around torsos and other garments were scooped into bundles of fabric that was twisted, folded or knotted at the back. Hemlines dropped to midi lengths and silhouettes mostly fell away from the body – artist smocks and capes swooped into trapeze shapes. At times it verged on conceptual, but attainably so.
It was a standout collection that ushered in an organic kind of luxury, further aided by the palette of neutrals shaded from white to ivory to mocha. Sensational.
I’ve included a few of my favourite looks here but go across to The Row on Fashionising to see the entire collection. Totally drool-worthy, dontcha think?
