Have you been dying to dress like your childhood idols Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen? Well, your prayers may be answered. The two are selling their fashion archive via their luxury fashion label, The Row.


The brand was established in 2006 by the Olsen sisters “focusing on exceptional fabrics, impeccable details, and precise tailoring” (The Row). The quality of their items is why the brand is known for their higher prices, but worth it when shopping for luxury items.


Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have been collecting vintage pieces and have combined them into a collection on The Row under Galerie. Known for their chic style and basic pieces, they have a large assortment of styles and designers for this collection.


One piece I have my eye on, though I could never afford, is a Chanel Haute Couture navy skirt suit with red piping from the 1970’s.

It is simple and stunning, much like most pieces in the Olsen twins’ wardrobe.

This black release tuck cape by Pierre Cardin is very unique but does it give anyone else Professor Snape vibes? I can totally see Snape wearing this while walking the halls of Hogwarts at night.

This coat gives me New York City vibes and is perfect as a trendy everyday coat. Compared to some of the other pieces in this vintage collection which would probably grant you a few strange looks on your day out in the city.

Although this kimono is definitely not meant for everyday wear, the drapery makes it luxurious and I can picture Rihanna wearing it on a red carpet.


Other featured pieces in this vintage collection include styles from designers such as Comme des Garçons, Yohji Yamamoto, John Galliano, Pierre Cardin, and Issey Miyake.


They are all ‘price upon request,’ aka if you have to ask for the price you probably can’t afford it. Essentially, crushing my dreams of ever owning that Chanel skirt suit.

Many of the vintage pieces are coats or long dresses, with one Comme des Garçons skirt thrown into the mix.

This Skirt With Pin Fastening is from the mid 1990’s and screams luxury. The drapery and detail put forth by the pin fastening is gorgeous.


Most of the pieces are very minimal, an extension of what the Olsen’s are known for wearing out. Specifically, the trench coats in this vintage collection make it obvious that they were previously owned by none other than Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.

Have I ever worn or thought about wearing a trench coat? No, but after seeing this Galliano piece, I wouldn’t mind saying yes to the trench.


The pieces are all unique and do I wish I had loads and loads of money to spend on some of them? Maybe. Ok, I definitely wish I did but that's besides the point. At least I can admire these pieces on their free gallery on The Row’s website and dream of the red carpets and fancy galas I would wear these haute pieces to.


If you love vintage pieces and high fashion then you should consider taking a look at this incredible collection. Although, I do not recommend browsing if you have a hard time saying no when it comes to shopping online.
