Wale is switching gears from music to fashion design with the recent debut of his independent accessory line, “Wrkng Title.”
The collection, which sells exclusively on the Wrkng Title website, is the rapper’s effort to mesh street and designer fashion into a trendy line of wearables.
Knit beanies are Wrkng Title’s Fall 2013 signature accessory and are inspired by styles in runway fashion, street footwear and professional sports.
“I saw something missing when I would shop for myself,” Wale told Hip Hop Wired. “I had ideas about a certain design, fit, material. I just want to provide a great look with great quality.”
Wale recently teamed up with Jourdan Dunn on her new cooking show Well Dunn With Jourdan Dunn, where the two stirred up some good food, cocktails and conversation while Dunn test drove a vibrant green beanie from Wale’s new collection.
The Grammy-nominated Wale takes on this new fashion endeavor as he awaits the release of his highly anticipated new album, The Gifted, which is set to release June 25th.
