Vogue’s glowing (some would say fawning) profile of Mary-Kate and Ashley’s The Row inspired me to take a closer look at the Fall/Winter 2011 collection. And yes, it turns out these are really excellent clothes. Simple but immaculately well conceived too.
It’s sort of like if every Akris, Céline, and Jil Sander collection I’ve loved in the past few years got all jumbled up, and then topped with a goat. And also they let a Japanese school girl style the looks, but only from the knees down.
I realize that sounds sorta backhand-y, but I honestly do love these clothes.
