The Row F/W 2018

Art / Architecture / Design / Fashion

The Row has always found solace in blurring the lines between art and fashion, showing highly curated collections designed with the modern yet timeless woman in mind. For fall/winter 2018, the brand’s sisterly design duo collaborated with Dakin Hart, senior curator of the Isamu Nogochi museum in Long Island City, to create a “surreal, serene, somewhat apocalyptic landscape,” within the third floor of their West Village showroom.


Posted February 11th, 2019 By Colby Mugrabi

As the presentation commenced, models mingled amongst works scattered around the downtown New York City studio, crafted by artist Isamu Nogochi, one of the most innovative and experimental sculptors of the twentieth century.

Citing uniforms as a central source of inspiration, the collection had the coherence and congruity one would expect from the brand, this season, with added sophistication and self-effacing cool. There were oversized wrap coats, some with exaggerated draped collars, and relaxed suiting, as well as elevated, sculptural silhouettes that played off the show’s surroundings; hips were nipped in soft, hourglass curves, while drop-waist skirts voluminously protruded at the pelvis. Trousers were sharp, paired with point toed, over the knee boots – the season’s featured footwear – while model’s clutched an array of handbag styles, namely the brand’s ‘Margaux,’ The Row’s answer to an everyday tote.

Straightforward fabrics and muted colors stayed true to the collection’s overall feeling of uniformity – basic blacks, shades of grey and cool neutrals were offset by pops of hounds-tooth as well as mossy and military greens – while the unpretentious palette allowed for unique fabrication techniques to speak volumes. A fringed, unfinished hem was an exciting addition to a classic black knit maxi dress, while two standout evening looks exuded velvety façades with a delicately slashed surface treatment to reveal a layer of barely noticeable mint green hidden beneath. Such thoughtful garments were a paradigm for the collection as a whole, encapsulated by The Row’s unwavering commitment to withstanding trends and unique tendency towards restrained elegance.
