Minimalist meets surf in The Row Pre-Fall 2015

Posted on

Knits, cashmere coats, and cut-off culotte pants were at the core of this collection. With no prints, the eye was drawn to the pure, yet sombre palette of solid tones, from biscuit and sand to olive greens, blues, mauve and deep orange-red. A series of draped, almost religious robes allied with the sisters’ generally ascetic touches (a lot of pieces eschewed lapels and collars totally) and worked with minimalist raincoats. 

There were also surf references, from wetsuit-style zippers and stitching to bonded neoprene style backings to fabrics, while more obvious luxury came in the form of fur wraps, suede and astrakhan coats, and sharp tailored separates. Additonal sporty touches included a knit polo shirt. 

Bags came mostly simple, in natural tones, apart from a bright metallicized patent python model, with event glamour catered for with some long silk smock eveningwear. The Olsens never moved far from the beach vibe though, and in keeping with that all the pieces were worn with embroidered flat sandals.
