Being the Prima, with Nana

The Prima Collection was inspired by the movement of dance and the grace, style, and power of Prima ballerinas. Feel like a strong, confident woman whether you’re strutting across a stage or your kitchen floor — that’s being the Prima. We’ve tapped three women that embody that energy in everything that they do.

 

 

 

 

Meet Nana. Besides having impeccable style, Nana Yaa Asare-Boadu is a true artist in every form of the word.

From stoic to seductive postures, Nana navigates how audience and architecture inform the physics of the black female body. In everything she does — from work to personal life, this unstoppable force truly knows what it means to Be the Prima.
