A 1966 photo by LeRoy Grannis, aka "the godfather of surfphotography," turned up on their Instagram feed this morning. But this being The Row we're talking about, what we saw was not a collection of tropical prints, board shorts, and bikinis. The surfing references were subtle: zip closures, zigzag stitching of the kind you find on wet suits, fabrics backed with scuba neoprene. Otherwise, it was very much in keeping with the sisters' previous work: American sportswear as pared back as it is luxurious—austere and graceful in equal measure."
