War & Drobe
Nina Kovacevic is the conscious creative and founder behind War & Drobe, a London based sustainable womenswear brand with a vintage feel. War & Drobe was named as a symbol of empowerment for the everyday lives of women everywhere. After arriving in London as a child from war torn Yugoslavia during the early 90’s Nina was taught the power of fashion and how to draw strength through the clothes she wore. What Nina learnt from her mother as a child has stayed with her over the years and today she firmly believes that no matter what women face, their wardrobes can serve as armour allowing them to feel feminine and fierce.
“I grew up with my mother telling me stories about her experiences during the war. She worked as a pharmacist and although there were daily shootings and bombing she would still go to work every day. She’d tell me how she made an extra effort to dress well during this time because it was her way of showing resilience and maintaining a sense of pride and dignity. I often remember seeing her wearing her red Dior lipstick and vintage furs, she was a real head turner”
Each garment at War & Drobe is handmade by Nina in her London studio, there are no mass produced garments so every War & Drobe customer can wear her threads with pride knowing each piece is a limited edition and has been handcrafted with precision and care. By slowing down the pace of creating clothing, War & Drobe is able to preserve traditional artisanal sewing techniques. Quality fabrics are sourced from designer surplus which helps to minimise environmental impact.
Collections are vintage inspired but adapted for the modern day woman who enjoys owning unique garments that will compliment their existing wardrobes. With War & Drobe women are able to enjoy wearing quality and stylish garments that will stand the test of time.
