Today, J. Crew showed its wares for next season, so you know Amelia was stoked. We swooned, on the other hand, for the new collection from Assembly, which has a real understated cool to it. The Row’s collection of oversized, flowy garments seemed to really reflect the Olsen twins’ personal style. And Rachel Roy’s collection showcased her girly, feminine chic. Check out those collections, along with Badgley Mischka, Betsey Johnson and Sophie Theallet, after the jump!
Mary-Kate and Ashley are really into backpacks. The sisterly design duo couldn’t possibly find a way to top last year’s $39,000 alligator version (at left) (which, it’s worth noting, flew off the shelves), so they settled for incorporating this $16,900 fur rucksack into The Row’s pre-fall collection. Some might find the patchwork pattern unappealing, but fret not — the bag is Rachel Zoe-approved! Thank God! I was terrified for a second there that it might be ugly. [Us Weekly]
The Council of Fashion Designers of America bestows awards on new young talent each year and throws itself a major party. Last night was the big event, and designers and their fans turned out in droves to honor one another. And the winners are… Keep reading »
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are the tiniest, richiest moguls. And for that, they can do whatever they want, which is apparently design and market a $39,000 backpack for their high-end fashion line, The Row. Why does it cost $39,000? It’s made of crocodile, and presumably comes with one of the twins tucked inside. That’s our guess, anyway. Here they are with another bag from their collection, along with sis Elizabeth. Don’t they look ready to suck the marrow from your lifeless body? [Fashionista] Keep reading »

“[The Row] was something where we didn’t want our names on it. I even went as far as being, ‘OK, who can be the frontman?’ We can make the clothes and someone else can be the frontman’ … Instead, it was more about letting the product speak for itself and us being quiet. It’s five years in, and we’ve stuck to that model.”
— While most celebrity clothing lines are more like modeling jobs with a PR and design team doing all the work, Ashley Olsen tells USA Today that she and Mary-Kate wanted The Row to be non-Olsen-oriented. So modest and humble! [USA Today]

Olsen-designed luxury line The Row has released images from its Spring/Summer 2009 lookbook. Looks like Mary-Kate and Ashley went with a tribal theme to complement their collection of luxed-up basics. Is it just us, or do you find some of these photos kind of creepy? Some even seem to have religious references.
Unlike other celeb lines, The Row has maintained success and acclaim by distancing itself from the Olsen name. Yet, we have to wonder, wouldn’t it just be better if MK and Ash modeled this stuff themselves? Everyone wants their wardrobes anyhow, they’re pretty girls, and the product is good. So what’s with the artsy-fartsy stuff? Check out some more pics from The Row’s line after the jump. [Fashion Copious] Keep reading »
