For The Row’s Resort 2017 collection designers Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen made a statement by including Frederique van der Wal, Audra Avizienis alongside Olga Shere and Jada Joyce. Four models with almost no makeup and no retouch (?).
Oh, how I want this suede dream… The taupe, or brown, hue is perfect and very versatile, along with the size of this “Market Bag”. I am pretty sick and tired of all of my black bags, especially during the fall and winter season when you also wear too much black. From The Row and you can shop it here.
Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen opened up The Row’s New York flagship store a couple of weeks ago with the very posh but discreet address; 17 E 71st St, New York – just down the block from the Frick Collection. It’s the second home of the luxurious brand and the very sleek and minimalistic three-story townhouse does not only show the sister’s latest collection and essentials, the brand’s eyewear collection with Oliver Peoples along with the new shoe collection. The very tasteful space also includes artwork by Jean Michel Basquiat, Borge Jorgensen and Keith Haring, which is for sale – including the furniture.
I just had to post my favorite looks from The Row Resort 2014 collection, which are quite a few. As you know by now, I am a huge fan of theirs (and their personal styles as well). As always The Row delivers. I love the hues and the colors, canvas-beigen, olive green, navy, light grey, and the up and coming color (that not only The Row showed, but also Stella McCartney and Louis Vuitton) — light yellow. For this Resort line, Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen said they were looking at uniforms — of sailors, of Japanese workers, of school children — for ideas this season. The thing about the Olsen twins is that they have this amazing eye for fabrics. They make pieces out of the best of the best materials and combine these in beautiful set-ups, like satin and denim, cashmere and canvas. As we can see they stay put to what they love and believe in. For an example they have always highlighted the flats, ever since The Row’s very beginning. And of course, it is implemented in this collection, as well as the semi-long and ankle-long skirts. Well, it is true love as always.
I have got some specific items on top of my wish list for the moment. It’s a never ending story right? Having things you want and crave all the time? Well, I hope it never will end either. It’s nice to have certain things to ‘dream’ about or long for. Even though is just stuff. So much better with a vacation to long for though (!). But, there are a couple of things that I want, which I of course would like to share with you.
Eytys white canvas sneakers: these I have been waiting for a while! Hopefully I’ll get my hands on them next time I am in Stockholm. Céline hobo bag and python wedges: needs no explanation. I just need them. Badly. Acne Studios linen blazer and red mini skirt: the blazer is the perfect piece for me when to use as a jacket when it gets warmer. I have been eyeing the Célinen linen blazer, but hey, 2500 dollars for a blazer is waaay too much. So this is a really nice alternative. And the red skirt, feels very Vaccarello. Super cool and super chic. The Row ribbed sweater: the perfect rib and the perfect color. Dior pearl earrings: I just love these and the fact that they have pearls on each sides. Givenchy silk pleated trousers: silk satin oversized trousers would be a perfect investment this season for my ‘going out’ wardrobe. Repossi gold chain necklace: subtle and simple, the perfect everyday necklace. Chanel credit card holder: I need a new one. My wallet is too big and my current card holder is just, well boring, so I can’t get it out of my head that I want a new one. This one from Chanel is probably one I’d never get sick and tired of.
Every time on this specific period of the year I start to crave sunglasses. Along comes the problem of which ones to get (huge problem right…). Even though I think I have every shape – wayfarer, aviators, cat-eye, squared…and so on, I always want one more pair. For this season I have no idea of what I am looking for. I have been eyeing a pair from Céline but I haven’t found the right model. Underneath I have gathered some cool ones.
One of the coolest bag of the season is this hobo bag from The Row. A bit to bohemian for me, but as always the Olsen sister knows how to create the coolest bags. I would definitely go for either a hobo or a bucket bag this season. Two pretty timeless bags which have their revival this Spring. Not only seen in the Resort collection of The Row, also Céline showed off an hobo bag which was literally to die for as well as Dior and Louis Vuitton.
