Unfortunately, we have yet to master the ever-coveted Olsen hair, so in the mean time we’re getting our Mary-Kate and Ashley fix by poring over their new interview and spread for Net-a-Porter’s The Edit. Despite knowing full well that the duo will remain enigmatic until the end of time, we were hoping that MK would dish about her relationship with 44-year-old Olivier Sarkozy. Sadly, that was not the case. In fact, Mary-Kate barely spoke at all. Instead, we got Ashley talk a lot about “anonymity” — which makes perfect sense.
Ashley told The Edit:
“Anonymity is a word we talk about all the time — in life and in clothes. [On The Row] 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 that jacket is, I hope that is what The Row gives you.”
In related news, she reveals that the twins have been bedecked in designer wares since their Full House days:
“[On Full House] we’d be in six-hour fittings three times a week, because we had to wear 12 different outfits,” Ashley recalls. The majority of the wardrobe was made up of adult pieces, including Chanel and Marc Jacobs, cut to fit. “We were designing clothes for ourselves as we were so petite,” Mary-Kate adds. “So I think that is when we became obsessed with fit, and now the obsession has become a profession.”
