The Row’s Spring 2014 woman is a well-traveled and dressed nomad. She doesn’t seem to keep her feet on any ground for long.
When viewing The Row’s collections, even without touching, you can grab onto the feelings of luxury within their pieces. This collection has that in spades, but one can also see the fine craftsmanship displayed through the collection – a sleeveless black leather laser-cut dress, so finely cut it looked as though it was lace. Another prime example was the magnificent perforated shearling coat that comes near the end of the show.
As Style.com reported, “There were visions of Arabia in the long layers and the models’ veils, Northern Africa in the printed djellaba, a fishing village in the macramé sweater and matching cross-body hobo bag, and Russia (maybe), or some other cold clime, in a dense wool coat with a quilted bib.” A few of my favorite standouts were the white top in crinkled georgette worn over a twisted bandeau and a snake-skin wrap skirt, a diaphanous plisse double-layered midi and an and an outstanding black-and-white coat, woven in zigzag stripes, with cuffs trimmed in cream tulle.
This is the first season the twins, Mary-Kate and Ashley, are offering shoes, which they will be selling in limited editions. The chic and understated loafers and mules, commissioned by the Olsens from the Bologna, Italy based cobbler of handmade men’s shoes Enzo Bonafè, are sure to be gobbled up by The Row fans quickly.
A few more of my favorite Spring/Summer 2014 looks so far.
