Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen are the latest chic celebrity muses for Net-A-Porter’s The Edit magazine.
Some highlights from the interview:
On why they started The Row:
Ashley: “We saw a space in the market… we knew there wasn’t another brand offering basics in a luxurious and contemporary way. If I wear certain designer brands, or too much of something, I look crazy and i need something to break it up. If you are wearing a Chanel jacket and you need an anonymous piece that will show just how special the jacket is, I hope that is what The Row gives to you.”
On their love affair with fashion:
Ashley: “[On Full House] we would be in six-hour fittings three times a week, because we had to wear 12 different outfits.”
Mary-Kate: “We were designing clothes for ourselves as we were so petite… So I think that is when we became obsessed with fit, and now the obsession has become a profession.”
On life in the public eye
Ashley: ‘There is a threshold in New York, and once you pass that and are considered a New Yorker, they leave you alone… But we’re at the office every day, then home or out for dinner, so there aren’t the opportunities for them to take pictures. For the most part you try and avoid it… [I do], at least.”
