Crediting this collection’s inspiration to older men and women working in the garden, the Olsen’s choice of models might not be of too much surprise. “I think I just really fit the bill for them,” Rodin said. “They’re so revolutionary, and I felt that they just really understand what they want as far as their fashion—and they wanted it on older women. It’s a flattering thing coming from them because they are so stylish and ahead of the curve. I felt honored to do it.”
In the newly released lookbook, The Row’s classic aesthetics transcends itself and reaches a higher plane of artistic expression. “It was great for me. I liked the fact that I looked exactly like myself,” Rodin said of the photos. “It’s good because if people see you in all of these pictures and they’ve been retouched, and then they bump into you at the supermarket they go (gasps) ‘Oh my god! That’s what she really looks like?’”
