‘Primarily Retro’ is the Fashion Inspiration You Need to Push Through the Wintertime Blues
Mark Clennon

When young Black creatives come together to tell a story, there are no limits — this notion was evident with vibrant, eye-popping fashion editorial ‘Primarily Retro’.

The brainchild of visual director Amanda Moore-Karim and photographer Mark Clennon, the series honors the funk era using primary colors and an aesthetic that delivers retro vibes with a modern flair.

Beautiful Congolese model Pesi Therese brings to life the work of emerging designers including Colorant, Brooklyn Archives, Alicia Reina, Undra Celeste, Intentionally Blank, ZouXou shoes and SiammPatra.

Featuring bright, colorful imagery, ‘Primary Colors’ is definitely all the inspiration we need to add a splash of color to our weary winter wardrobes.

The mission of creative director Amanda Moore-Karim’s brand is to address racial politics through fashion. ‘Primarily Retro’ is the newest addition to a collection of afro-centric fashion editorials that showcase the beauty of Black models and style.
