About Anne Vest
Sustainable Shearling Made With Care & a Minimalistic Nordic Approach
ANNE VEST is known for a Nordic and minimalistic approach with a passion for creating unique, chique outerwear. We use shearling as the main material, always trying to reinvent and re-design the conceptualisation of the classic cuts and usage, creating raw, unique designs.
“Sustainability is a huge part of the way I work. Both in regards to my favorite materials; shearling and leather, our production, packaging and all other aspects of the business. Creating timeless pieces, with a strong appeal and ethical approach is essential for our brand. I love the classic shapes, but I also love re-inventing them and creating something truly unique and modern that works as a statement piece, but also something that can be worn everyday. I do not put adjectives on my designs, I work from an instinctive approach. For me, my design has to make people feel good, and has to look exceptional. This is always the backbone in all of my works. I am inspired from my surroundings, when I see something, I sketch it, re-sketch it, and sketch again until my eccentric designs merge with reality”. ANNE VEST
Shearling is chosen for its nature-sustainability features, its incredible softness and its multiple possibilities. Shearling is a sheepskin or lambskin, that has been tanned and dressed with the wool left on. Real shearling breathes and is more flexible than synthetic shearling. All shearling used in ANNE VEST design are from farmed animals, and with sustainability being very important to ANNE VEST, we focus on ensuring that all shearling materials are being sourced with no animals taken from the wild, nor raised specifically for the shearling production. We believe that no animals used in our production should be raised for their skin, and we ensure all our suppliers use humane animal treatment, in order to prevent any animal abuse.
