EXCLUSIVE EVENT: THE ROW FOUNDERS AND ANTONIA TOAST TO THE NEW SEASON
A TIMELESS ALLURE
The Row and Antonia celebrated their longstanding relationship of 10 years, and the arrival of the Spring 2018 collection, with an intimate cocktail hosted by the luxury label’s founders, Ashley Olsen and Mary-Kate Olsen, and Antonia Giacinti, owner of the high-end boutique.
The Row was established in 2006 with the aim to create the perfect T-shirt. From the very beginning, Antonia recognized the unique quality and exceptional fit of this luxury essential at a time when the market lacked this kind of offering.
In a relaxed and elegant atmosphere, with trays of finger food and champagne floating around, the sisters entertained clients and aficionados, who indulged with the label’s latest arrivals.
The new season is shaped around simplicity and lightness. Sinuous lines define the waist with sculpted virtuosity while drapes fall into soft flares. Evergreen closet staples such as the trench coat, the duster and the opera coat in foamy cashmere, double-face silk, poplin and paper leather are pared down and essential. With their ability to reinvent the classics, silk ribbed tank tops, low-slung khakis and linen chinos evoke a timeless and timely ease.
Besides their signature palette of neutrals, the designers infused gentle tones of lavender, limestone, seafoam and dusty rose, countered by accents of ochre, aubergine and fuchsia.
As evening descends, the spotlight shines on dreamy floor-grazing gowns in layers of washed silk charmeuse, cut in apron, column and camisole shapes. Exclusive details include a silk chord that fastens a halter neck and hand-beaded mesh.
