Streetwear designer, ardent collaborator and marketing intellect Darren Romanelli (also known as Dr. Romanelli to others) is not a man that rests on his laurels. Always bubbling with ideas across a myriad of identities, Romanelli employs his dexterity on an array of projects at any given time, collaborating with the likes of Head Porter, Looney Tunes and TI$A on bespoke iterations that often merge vintage sensibilities with contemporary trends. While his DRx line may pay tribute with retro aesthetics, the man’s affinity for up-to-date technology is evident to keep and stay organized. Hence, when we asked the doc for his Tech Essentials, we weren’t too surprised to be provided with a swathe of apps which keeps the everywhere-man grounded. Amidst the obligatory Instagram and WhatsApp, Romanelli also keeps an eBay app close to track purchases for DRx, while ESPN and NYTimes offer latest news updates and an ADT app connects the office camera to his phone for peace of mind. An avid fan of music, Romanelli is equipped with an Everyday Looper app to make tunes on-the-go, while the Breathe app is a simple reminder to take a few second in the day to keep at peace with the mind and body. All navigated via the dependable iPhone 4S, these are the tech-based necessities from one of the most respected customizers in the game.
