New York: Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen of The Row presented their Spring 2015 collection in a fifth-floor warehouse space with filtered sun casting soft shards of light through skylights – one could imagine being transported back in time into the cloisters of an old monastery. The surroundings set the scene for a lineup that was as pure in silhouette as was the use of the natural raw silks. Sweeping A-line gowns, mid-calf lengths, exquisite long line tabards and swaths of fabric wrapped around the body creating soft volume at the hip or were used to gently wrap around shoulders – all breathtakingly beautifully and executed in calm, graceful lines. There was a cross between an Eastern artisanal look and a medieval prioress in this elegant, serene and unseemingly intricate presentation. – Lizzy Bowring
