35-year-old fashion twins Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen just sat down for a rare interview with i-D Magazine, and said they were “out of practice” when it came to interviews!
They both turned 35 this past week on June 13, and spoke about not being the face of their pricy brand The Row. Mary-Kate revealed: “We were raised to be discreet people.” Ashley added: “We really didn’t want to be in front of it. We didn’t necessarily even want to let people know it was us, in a way. I mean, it was one of those things where it was really about the product, to the point where we’re like, ‘Who could we get to kind of front this so we don’t have to?’ I think, to this day, you’ll see we really put the product first.”
On starting The Row, Ashley revealed: “I don’t know how conscious we were of what we were doing at that time, to be really honest. We had just moved to New York. We were 18 years old and I think what we did know was that we wanted to take that time to take a break from what we were previously doing and to explore things that interested us, and explore what life has to offer…” Read their full interview here and let us know what you think.
