There are the models on Instagram who inspire you to think, “Yes, I could definitely pull off an updated shag haircut.” And then there’s Olivia Ferrer, who will make you want not only a ’70s shag but also some Argo-style aviators to go with it. Making people want to buy eyeglasses is actually Ferrer’s job, as a model and ambassador for Moscot glasses. But she’s also a musician, Jeff Buckley enthusiast (she has a tattoo of his lyrics), and aspiring art director. We spoke with her about Amsterdam, toe surgery, and Jeeps.
