A Label with Heritage
War & Drobe garments are proudly handmade in London by founder and creator of the label Nina Kovacevic. As a child Nina came to London fleeing the war from former Yugoslavia. It was during this time that her mother taught her the power of fashion and the strength it can bring. The label was named and born out of a love for empowering women through fashion and allowing them to feel fierce and feminine in their day to day lives.
Having studied Fine Art at Central Saint Martins, Nina went on to develop her skills training under a tailor, couturier and working in a lingerie studio. She collates her past experiences, technical knowledge and creative background to bring to life collections with a purpose. By slowing down the making process and never mass producing clothing, War & Drobe celebrates and preserves traditional artisanal sewing techniques. Crafting clothing consciously is at the heart of the label, starting with a simple sketch that’s brought to life in the London based studio.
The designs are inspired by classic styles in mind while the cut is adapted to suit the modern woman. Fabrics are selected for their low impact on the environment such as organic cottons and those that are already in existence. They are sourced from British suppliers in order to support small as well as long standing businesses. As a sustainable fashion label War & Drobe looks at the full life cycle of the garments and what impact they leave. Details such as bespoke buttons that are crafted in London and sewn onto immaculately finished garments make each piece an item to be treasured. Find your perfect match in a collection that’s designed with you in mind and enjoy wearing a timeless garment that you will cherish for years to come.
