Trendsetting doesn’t even begin to explain the Olsen twins’ power. Their unique style leaves a wake of inspiration behind them, and we’re all just riding the wave. Although the actresses pop up on the silver screen now and again, their main focus is their fashion label The Row, which recently opened its first retail location (which sells furniture!). Like all great designers, the Olsens look to the past, as well as other cultures, for inspiration. The result is a collection that is not only modern, but also withstands the test of time and passing trends.
The designers embrace a similar modernity in their personal style. Stark lines, dramatic silhouettes, and quality materials are requisites in their wardrobe, as well as great inspiration for the way we should all decorate our homes, and perhaps the way Mary-Kate (and fiancé Olivier Sarkozy) will decorate their new New York townhouse. Give your space that Olsen identity with quality pieces with bold, yet simple designs; shop our top picks below.
