Last April, the Row designers Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen came to Seattle to plug their other line, Elizabeth James. While they were here, they visited the Nick Cave show at SAM, and inspiration hit.
You’re sharper than I am if you can see the influence in their spring 2012 collection, but then maybe I’m not picking up on it because we haven’t seen the almost all-white pieces in person. Here’s a chance to change that.
The collection will be at Mario’s on Thursday, October 27 from 10 to 5.
Hints: The designers told the press gathered for their September 9 show that the Seattle show made them want “everything to float and breathe, or make a sound even.” Style.com reporter Nicole Phelps noted that “In the stillness of the performance space, the shell buttons densely embellishing a long tank faintly jingled.”
The Olsens’ gorgeous and exclusive designs are worth seeing regardless, but the Seattle connection should make the trunk show all the more fun.
