In the same week that they won the CFDA Award for women's wear, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen delivered an endlessly elegant Resort 2013 collection for The Row. The offering features a strong assortment of outerwear, from a wool coat in lavender to fur-lined parkas and blue vinyl-treated trenches. But there's no shortage of pieces ripe for warmer, sunnier climes, like a gauzy cropped tank tops, sheer shirts, and skirts of varying hem heights. The designers said they looked at pictures of fisherman when they were designing the collection, but other than a cozy turtleneck paired with an elaborately embroidered cream coat — creating the effect of an oversized fisherman's sweater — the nautical influence wasn't translated too literally. Instead, the fluidity of the sea is captured in easy fabrics and pared-down tailoring.
