mary-kate & ashley: the row.

BEHIND THE ROW with Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen.

"...it would not be surprising if the tiny Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen turned out to be two of the largest players in mid-twenty-first-century American fashion. “The thing about us,” Mary-Kate says, “is we think big. Huge.”"

“I’d go through my closet all the time, putting things together—it looked like a tornado hit it.” says Ashley. “Still does,” they chorus, then play-bicker over a CĂ©line sweater Mary-Kate had hijacked from Ashley. So there’s a demarcation line between their wardrobes? “Hmm,” says Smashley. “There’s hers, there’s mine. And a huge ‘maybe’ pile.”

"Then came the fall collection in New York, which left the most hard-core fashion skeptics in a slight state of shock over its subtle sense of inclusivity. Here was something for everyone to aspire to: considered, wearable pantsuits, great corduroy jackets with ostrich-patch elbows, incredible coats of every length, pretty but not cute slipdresses, crazily glamorous furs—not to mention the surprise garnish of glossily tactile crocodile and python bags. How could this collection, which started with a nicely made T-shirt and a few leather leggings, suddenly be looking suspiciously like a contender for the higher ranks of American luxury."
