ANNE VEST is a luxury women outerwear label, with the atelier situated in Copenhagen, Denmark, ANNE VEST made its artistic debut in 2009 – founded by the couple; designer Anne Vestesen and CEO Joern Vestesen.
Prior the couple resided and worked for years in Paris, and upon return to Copenhagen they brought with them the ambition to thoroughly explore the possibilities of the material close at heart: shearling.
The style has become a combination of the Nordic design simplicity and the Parisian chicness. It is rarely seen that a fashionbrand is so dedicated to one material only, but that is excactly what ANNE VEST is.
ANNE VEST is one of the new young leading brands in modern fur with shearling as the material close at heart. All ANNE VEST work springs from the leitmotif, that each garment is carefully crafted in impeccable sartorial quality, masterfully cut from handpicked highest quality materials.Through a powerful and experimental approach to fur design ANNE VEST constructs each collection to catch our zeitgeist and curiously look into the future. The style is consistently feminine in both the color palette and sculpturing. Voluminous shapes often developed from reinvented classics where the detail is never lost. ANNE VEST designs are items with no styles bound to seasons and all styles to be worn forever.
”I love the beautiful things in life and will always go that extra length in order to achieve perfection in my work. Aesthetics are what we let our selves be influenced by and my eye have always been drawn towards the simplicity in beauty, whether it being the clean symmetrical lines of the black balconies on the sandy-colored buildings in Paris, or how two contrasting colors will impact a look when blocked up against each other. Beauty can also be felt, and that is why I adore working with shearling, the sense of luxury when running your fingers over an immaculate shearling piece is nothing short of fantastic.”
The preferred material in all ANNE VEST collecti- ons is shearling – chosen for its nature-sustainability features, its incredible softness and its multiple possibilities.
