The best part of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's The Row Spring/Summer 2010 collection is their choice of model. James Ransone is a really talented actor who starred in the critically acclaimed HBO show The Wire. He also played an obnoxious, smart ass yet loveable soldier in HBO's amazingly awesome mini series Generation Kill. If this is your first introduction to James "PJ" Ransone...well you're welcome.

Back to the clothes! Another interesting element of this collection is its normality. The Row is supposed to be the luxery line for MK and Ashley. Elizabeth and James is their more wearable collection. Yet in their first foray into menswear, the twins kept things simple with leather jackets, blazers, black slacks and plain tees. However, a 90's inspired vision can be seen in the wash and cut of the denim.

This collection had me at James Ransone.
