Well-known Singer and Fashion Innovator SZA recently dropped her new album titled “Ctrl,” inspiring several NOLA creatives to channel the SZA aesthetic.
Local Photographers LifeofRayno & LanesLense collaborated with Creative Director Tyrian Reed and Model Deandra in honor of SZA’s unique style and music.
“She gives off such a carefree vibe and it is inspiring to Black girls everywhere. She is naturally herself and we wanted to portray the natural fashion for others to do the same” Reed said.
The four creatives captured the essence of SZA’s laid back, nonchalant style with a New Orleans twist. Local locations such as Gene’s Po-Boys and Bywater homes were used to promote color and fun.
The inspiration for the shoot stems from research of SZA’s fashion on social media and popular song lyrics. The creatives plan to release the photos on their social medias to gain the attention of the pop star and promote each song on the album by captioning each photo with a different song title.
