Style.com’s executive editor, Nicole Phelps, called out Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s “beautifully understated” Fall ’12 collection for The Row as one of her highlights of the season in our editor scrapbook. The CFDA members are decidedly on the same page—the sister act earned a Womenswear Designer of the Year award nod, alongside seasoned veterans like Marc Jacobs and Proenza Schouler’s Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough, on Wednesday night. Here, watch a Style.com exclusive video (below) showcasing the luxe, monochrome looks the Olsens presented at the historic Bemelmans Bar in February.
Kate Moss Doesn’t Mind Snakes, Olsen Twins Enlist Prada Exec For The Row, Rihanna Has A TV Show, And More…
Being a top model requires the ability to withstand some unpleasant encounters. “The snakes. I don’t mind snakes, but sometimes they’ve been quite…you know, snakes going up legs and snakes everywhere,” says Kate Moss, referring to one of her weirdest modeling gigs. [Huff Po]
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have brought on Prada’s U.S. president and chief operating officer, Francois Kress, to take helm of The Row. Of Kress, who will serve as the president and chief operating officer of The Row, Ashley Olsen says, “His experience and sensibility will add great value to The Row in its next phase of development.” [WWD]
Rihanna will produce and appear in a show to find a new top designer. The name of the show has not been released, but she has revealed that she will wear the winner’s design for her headline performance at London’s Wireless Festival this summer. [Telegraph]
Belgian concept store RA set up shop in the Marais district in Paris on Wednesday. The 1,500-square-foot space includes women’s and men’s ready-to-wear pieces from labels including Rodarte, Bernhard Willhelm, and Iris van Herpen. [WWD]
“Entry-level” is not a phrase you often hear where The Row is concerned. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have kept the quality high and the prices higher on all of the pieces at their label, a strategy that’s endeared them to luxe obsessives and craftwork wonks, even while it’s earned them a detractor or two. (Their $39,000 backpack—make that sold-out $39,000 backpack—famously made the rounds as a punchline on the cable pundit circuit.) But their new driving gloves, available online today at TheRow.com, are a more affordable indulgence than fans may expect. They’ll still set you back $325, but the hair-calf and leather or python and leather drivers have all the understated chic the line stands for at a relatively mild rate. They are, dare one say it, a Row stocking stuffer. Even if your particular stocking doesn’t hang on Mustique.
