Romantic retro vibes with Alana Monteiro and Lorenzo Cromwell

This fashion story is inspired by fashion editorials featuring couples popular during the 2000s

Model Alana Monteiro and comedian Lorenzo Cromwell (better known as Renny), loving the concept of couple fashion stories from the 2000s, decided to try out this style in their new photoshoot. “We loved how the vintage outfits complemented each other.
