When I grow up, I want to be just like Linda Rodin. I mean…seriously…she’s rocking a pair of leather pants (see below)…who else could do that as effortlessly as she can! For those of you that aren’t familiar with Ms Rodin, she is a stylist and former fashion editor for Harper’s Bazaar. Currently she runs her own skincare line, Olio Lusso, and she’s been showing up all over town in ads for J.Crew, Karen Walker and Coach.
For some reason I’ve been thinking about aging a lot lately. What I liked about living in Europe, especially Zurich, was the fact that the elder population still looked hip. In fact, in Zurich, the older the gentleman was, the cooler his glasses were. In Vienna, there was an eccentric old lady in her eighties that lived in my neighborhood and often I saw her sporting a beret, with a leather skirt and jacket. Oh, how she made me HAPPY! There have been times in my life where I have slipped out of fashion, (in the early years of motherhood), and I refuse to do that when I get older…I plan on using Ms Rodin as my role model!
The Coveteur was lucky enough to visit Ms Rodin’s Manhattan apartment and take some photos of her cool pad…she’s QUITE the collector!
