Vaute Couture – stylish, warm + vegan
You don’t have to be vegan to enjoy the styles that Leanne Mai-ly Hilgart creates for her vegan coat company Vaute Couture; it’s the icing on the cake. Hilgart spent many winters in the ‘windy city’ [Chicago] searching for a vegan coat that would maintain her vegan values and keep her warm. Exasperated with the search – she created her own. What makes Vaute Couture so great is that every detail is considered. The recyclable fleece outer; so soft and yet durable for many seasons and nary an animal harmed in it’s making. The wind-resistant lining is the pièce de résistance; recalling those Chicagoan winters, Hilgart has ensured that this coat will keep you warm.
Plus, Vaute Couture checks these boxes too: eco-conscious, constructed locally in NYC. Recyclable fabric made in the USA, a 100% Vegan Shell lined with Recycled Satin Ripstop, and buttons are engraved Tagua Nut.
Women have be raving and flocking to her pop-ups and trunk shows around the country, and finally she has launched a men’s line. The Joaquin men’s overcoat is a classic single breasted dress coat that features European slim men’s fit and dimensional details like back vent.
The pea coat is slim, warmer than wool, and effortless, with sophisticated fit & topstitching details to elevate even your most casual look.
While not cheap, Vaute Couture coats are meant to last, and are often found (especially pre-season) on sale at deep discounts. Ships everywhere.
