With a name like War+Drobe, this might not be what you expect.
Either way, it’s still dope. Yesterday, I got the chance to preview a new lifestyle brand called War+Drobe, and while the name may imply a focus on kicks and clothing, it’s actually aimed towards skaters. The innovative brand offers consumers the opportunity to personalize their skateboards with a collection of interchangeable faceplates.
All artistically colorful and vibrant, the plates come in a variety of designs and can be fitted over War+Drobe skateboards, which range in color from blue, to pink, and even a sleek, limited-edition all-black.
The man with the vision – War+Drobe’s founder Cornell Miller – spoke with me about the motivation behind the brand:
“Just thinking of making it easier and being more innovative. I was thinking, ‘OK well, why can’t these things interchange like cell phone covers?’ And that’s been my inspiration,” he said.
When discussing what these stars can bring to War+Drobe, Cornell continued:
“Hopefully, they just bring them. Whatever they love, whatever they think is creative and beautiful, they’ll bring it to the table.”
War+Drobe is also looking to expand its line to include hats, backpacks, and more. Keep your eyes peeled for what’s to come.
