HUSHED LUXURY
New York: The hard edges have definitely been buffed from the original look of The Row. Gone are the leather leggings and sharp shouldered blazers as well as any hint of trendy youthfulness. What remains is pure fluidity, a wardrobe for women who don’t need to scream or flash a lot of skin to assert their power. S/S 13 pushed this direction further, with softly draped trenches, camisole tops layered over wide-leg pajama pants and billowing robe coats. The collection achieved an undeniably serene pitch, calmly mixing the most subtly tailored balloon sleeve jackets or silken scarf front blazers with lean column skirts, limiting the palette to white punctuated by a handful of scarlet and navy. Luxury that whispers is the new game for Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, a rare choice in the market today and one as grown-up as they’ve become.—Nina Stotler
