The Olsen Twins Master the Art of Elegant Restraint

And They’re Having a (Limited) Texas Moment

BY // 09.27.17

When planning their seasonal wardrobes, sophisticated shoppers take their sartorial cues from The Row, the luxury fashion line from Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen that has mastered the art of elegant restraint. Since launching in 2006, the fashion house has offered thoughtfully edited designs in the highest-quality materials, becoming a staple for those who favor a subdued style.

In their Fall 2017 Ready-to-Wear collection, the Olsen twins have outdone themselves with a pared-back, utilitarian collection filled with rich neutrals, masterful tailoring, and minimal details.

Triple-cinched coats, sturdy leather boots, and masculine suiting take the foreground while quiet details like nearly hidden, hand-embroidered words (dignity, freedom, unity…) turn a crisp sleeve into a subtle statement.

The diminutive designers once again prove that there is power in restraint. Sometimes the message that is heard clearest is not the one that is loudest.

Forty Five Ten is offering an expanded edit of The Row’s Fall and Pre-Fall Ready-to-Wear collections and styles are available in the store now for a limited window of time. Quite limited, in fact, as the added looks are only here until this Saturday, September 30.

While it may be difficult to spring for that floor-length, belted fur while temperatures are still near sweltering, do as the Olsens do and keep your eyes on the fashionable future.
