War & Drobe

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, that’s why all fabrics used are already in existence and sourced from British suppliers. As a sustainable fashion label War & Drobe looks at the full life cycle of the garments and what impact they leave. Detailed such as bespoke metal buttons that are crafted in London and sewn onto immaculately finished garments make each piece an item to be treasured. War & Drobe launched in the summer of 2016 with the ready to wear collection becoming available on the online shop in Jan 2017. As the label grows, Nina explores new and inventive ways to create sustainable garments that stand the test of time both in style and quality.

Slip Dress

This is arguably one of the most versatile piece of clothing you can bring. A slip dress can be worn various ways. Throw it on and pair with comfy sandals for a day of sightseeing, with a sweater for a lovely dinner, or even over your swimsuit for some cover up for an evening stroll on the beach.

While the floral print trend has been in full bloom for as long as we can remember, it is still one of the best ways to freshen up your wardrobe and get ready for the summer season. Fabulous florals combined with simple, minimalist accessories, will never go out of style.

If you are looking for a more edgy look, try mixing florals with other prints and adding bold accessories such as statement jewellery or oversized sunglasses.
