Style Icon: Pharrell Williams

Posted by Drake General Store, 1 day, 8 hours ago

He gave us that infectious song, which we're assuming is still stuck in your head, + larger-than-life hat. At forty one years old Pharrell Williams looks as if he could blend right in at the Pier 62 Skatepark in New York City, making him a timeless (street) style icon.

Meet The Maker: Welcome Workshop

Posted by Drake General Store, 1 week, 6 days ago

Sometimes working in a room with a view can make all the difference in the world. Just ask Anny Oberlink + Maggie Prendergast, the duo behind Welcome Workshop, a design + silk screen studio located on a rooftop in New York City. With the aim to provide an alternative to large-scale anonymous production, the two native New Yorkers started the collective as a part-time endeavour, while simultaneously working their full-time jobs.

Style Icon: Grimes

Posted by Drake General Store, 4 weeks ago

She's our cool Canadian sweetheart. Claire Boucher, better known by her stage name Grimes, has not only rocketed to the mainstream radar with her music, but her personal style is stealing its own spotlight. Grimes is a chameleon, her look is always evolving and she makes a box of Crayolas look monochromatic.
