1. Maybe it was just a symptom of growing up in the ’90s, but I was obsessed with Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen as a pre-teen. I watched Full House and So Little Time religiously and owned every single one of their movies on VHS. (I actually watched Passport to Paris so many times that I wore the tape out. Am I ashamed? Nope.) I played their video games, used their lip gloss, read their cheesy yet strangely addictive books, and even subscribed to their very short-lived magazine. In other words, I’ve pretty much always wanted to be an Olsen twin.

    Obviously that isn’t going to happen, but I figure if I can’t actually be an Olsen twin, then I can at least dress like one, right? That’s where The Row comes in. Although the Olsen twins have been designing under this label for over seven years now—and despite the fact that they are two of the most recognizable Hollywood starlets-turned-designers—I still feel as though The Row does not get the praise and attention it deserves. While everyone else is fawning over Marc Jacobs and Alexander Wang, I am sitting here in awe and quiet admiration of the stunning and utterly refined collection the Olsen twins put forth for the upcoming Fall/Winter 2014 season.

    The show opened with what I can only describe as the embodiment of all of my ultimate winter outfit goals: an enormous sweater-and-skirt combo in matching “fur cashmere” that would swallow my small frame—which is the whole point. This look alone meets all the criteria for a Perfect Winter Look: It’s comfortable, it’s stylish, and it is undoubtedly very, very warm. The chunky knits were followed by voluminous coats with no discernible fastenings; flowing, fringed scarves draped across the shoulders; elegantly flared skirts; and surprising nods to men’s tailoring, including gleaming oxfords paired with slouchy trouser socks, a pinstriped suit, and gorgeous crocodile handbags that will no doubt fly off the shelves.

    While the Olsen twins’ particular take on minimalism might not be for everyone, there is no denying the thoughtful attention put into the design of each piece in this carefully-curated collection. New York Fashion Week might not be over yet, but The Row’s Fall/Winter 2014 collection—for me, at least—is going to be pretty difficult to beat.
