Gentlemen’s Corner: Wale on his Beanie Brand ‘Wrking Title’
Since the 1990s’ success of Phat Farm and Rocawear, Hip-Hop’s passion for fashion has evolved into a full-blown love affair! Today, just about every artist is looking to make the perfect sartorial match – and Wale is no exception.
His accessories line, WRKING TITLE, drops this fall with a unique collection of beanies. They’ve already been spotted on some of the hottest heads around (J. Cole, Rick Ross and supermodel stunner Jourdan Dunn), so we’re pretty sure he’s got a hit on his hands – or, rather, his head?
“I wanted to fill a void for an item I was having trouble finding: the perfect knit beanie,” Wale told VIBE Vixen. “I want to fully execute the many possibilities in accessories with WRKNG TITLE. That’s my priority in fashion at the moment,” he said.
The trendy rapper took a hands-on approach to the design process, and many of his ideas were incorporated into the final product.
“I came up with most of the designs, with great help from my “big sis” Jana, who has an extensive background in luxury and contemporary fashion,” Wale explained.
