Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen Present:
The Row Fall 2011 Collection
It all started with a quest for the perfect t-shirt. Ashley and Mary Kate Olsen have always been well respected in the fashion industry and with a brand like The Row, why shouldn't they be? Their haute brand, launched in 2007, started with the perfect t-shirt and from there evolved to "a brand that offers an updated concept of bespoke tailoring to modern day classics". The inspiration for the brand name came from the historic Savile Row. Savile Row is a shopping street in Mayfair, London that is known for men's bespoke tailoring.
Five years later, the line has expanded to tailored separates, outerwear, and accessories (sunglasses and handbags). The line is pre-dominantly produced in the USA with the exception of special knit wear and handbags that are produced in Italy. Along with producing their first Fall/Winter collection, the Olsens will be collaborating with TOMS Shoes and participating as members on The Council of Fashion Designers of America. I'm looking forward their Spring line already!
