The inspiration for the Olsen twin’s collection was this 1966 photo taken by Leroy Grannis as well as other surf references from the 1960’s and 70’s. The way they translated it into the clothes was done in a very subtle and graceful way. Fabric is backed in neoprene, zip closures are utilized, and the stitching you would find on a wet suit is incorporated. I absolutely love the nude colors choices, with pops of color here and there.
I feel this monochromatic nude look in loose silhouettes is very “in the now.” What do you think of this collection?
