The Row: Spring/Summer 2011 Collection Video

Meggasus and I have adored Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen ever since their debut on "Full House". (Undoubtedly because of the shared twin bond between us but that's besides the point) Now since they have made their move from child stars to high fashion designers with their increasingly popular line "The Row," Meggasus and I have even more of a reason to remain devoted fans of the pair...

Here is a candid shot of the two bartending at Fashion's Night Out last year... This photo is just so fun I had to share it!

What I love about the Olsen's collection is that they stay true to their own personal style. Pieces are understated and classy... focused on precise fit and the use of luxurious fabric, or as MK and A put it, "Refined, minimal luxury that is wearable." If you would like to hear more about the design process for their Spring/Summer 2011 collection, take a look at this video!

What I noticed about this particular collection that is different from what I expected is the use of light colors such as white, ivory, tan and pale pink. When I picture the Olsen's style I automatically think black and grays! Don't get me wrong, black is one of my favorite colors to wear on a daily basis (a habit I am trying to pull away from)...just it is nice that the Olsen's are incorporating these lighter colors, proving that "classy" doesn't necessarily always mean black.

The only aspect of the The Row that I believe the Olsen's should strongly consider changing, is its absurd prices. I understand that Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are powerhouses and can basically do whatever they want, but charging $250.00 for a simple, plain gray T-shirt is beyond ridiculous! Just take a look at a few of these sky-high prices.

This red trench is lovely, however I believe I bought almost the same exact one from H&M last year for about $20.00... That fabric better be as luxurious as they say it is!
