A few weeks ago on a particular sticky late afternoon, Roden Gray had its first model casting call. The fresh faces entered the store dewy with nerves and anticipation from the crowded unsteady streets. It was here that we found our lead couple for this editorial. Though strangers beforehand, these two found an instant connection on set that can’t be forced digitally. The cadence was playful and free, the rest you can see for yourself.
