ary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's collection for Spring 2012 established an ideal image of the effortlessly elegant woman, by utilizing light fabrics, slender silhouettes, and a thoroughly cool, hushed, and pacific palette of primarily white, mint green, and the occasional off-white hue. Seemingly simple slips were juxtaposed and complemented with layered pants. These loose-fitting pants, as well as the flat sandals, are to be seen in many a fashion editor's armoire.

The collection, with its Tibetan influence and its color story, was like a "breath of fresh air": ethereal, minimalist, cool. It established a most refreshing, elegant Asian aesthetic, through the thoughtful utilization of billowing silhouettes, layered pants, intricate embroidery, and tassel embellishments.
