This season, The Row — helmed by former child stars Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen — releases its men’s collection featuring a selection of ultra-fine cotton tees, suede jackets as well as cashmere topcoats. Every item — including sunglasses made in collaboration with Oliver Peoples, belts and money clips — is cleverly constructed and immaculately made.
This isn’t the first time The Row has introduced a men’s collection. In 2009, the twins tested the market with a small offering of soft tees and slouchy knits. In 2016, it released a menswear retail capsule available only in its Los Angeles and New York outposts.
This year’s collection — after two years of intensive research and extensive test drives — centres around the classic suit with modern details. The official release states: “Ashley Olsen and Mary-Kate Olsen combine the refinement of a classic bespoke experience with the precise minimal masculine style of New York specific to the ’80s and the ’90s. The construction within these pieces is what defines the incomparable and unique tailoring. The collection incorporates light floating hand stitched canvas, constructed in many different layers, in order for each piece to feel light but strong.… In addition to the suiting, the collection offers a range of core foundation pieces to build upon within any wardrobe including a selection of coats, jackets, shirting, knitwear, denim, and T-shirts.”
