Attractive Stranger is a retro wave inspired brand that infuses 80s synth-wave music. The twist that’s added from Attractive Stranger is intertwining authentic hip hop and the culture it breeds. It’s important to use real women who embrace their natural bodies as retro wave babes due to the genres tendency to favor imagery that’s reflective of women who are thin and blonde. Clearly, that’s not a diverse perspective and something the brand is working to change in the retro wave culture and society at large. What’s so offensive about boobs that don’t sit up and are mocha, chocolate, etc? We need to be more diligent about advocating on behalf of natural bodies as the norm. The retro wave aesthetic and culture has slowly, now steadily, infested popular culture and it is a brand goal to make sure real women are respected in this evolving genre of music, fashion and beauty. Summer is ours!
