War & Drobe

War & Drobe took up The Crossing’s first ever pop-up residency back in 2018. Label owner and designer Nina Kovacevic came to London as a child in the early 90’s, fleeing the war in the 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 reconnecting women with the garments they wear and allowing them to feel fierce yet feminine in their day to day lives. “My mother worked as a pharmacist during the war. 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, she was a real head turner.” Nina has a passion for making gorgeous, timeless, wearable garments that are valued like an heirloom - a throwback to a time when women passed much-loved designer pieces down to future generations.
