Meilily Style Pick & Photos: Vaute Couture’s Stylish, Vegan & Eco-Friendly Coats!

When Leanne Mai-ly Hilgart graduated from business school and founded her own company, we all got pretty lucky, because the company she started was Vaute Couture, bringing us drool-worthy vegan coats made from eco-friendly recycled materials. Vaute Couture is now starting to push the concept of vegan clothing to the forefront of fashion consciousness.

Vaute Couture first caught my attention last Fall when I saw their stylish weather-resistant coats online during a pre-sale.  When I found out that I could help finance their new production of Fall coats just by purchasing one in advance at the discounted pre-sale price, I was sold!

*Right now you can get 25% off new Vaute Couture coats with code LOVEYOU2 in celebration of their being named Company of the Year in the 2010 Veggie Awards.

The Vaute Couture Audrey coat is a feminine 3/4 length A-line coat with a little swing and a lot of style.  The front neckline is accented by an asymmetrical yet elegant collar, and the coat is nicely tailored at the waist and arms.  Additional touches include angled cuffs at the wrists as well as covered buttons.

The Vaute Couture label says “lovely inside then out.”

Note: Colors in the last two photos are the most true to life, but the coat does look lighter in sunlight.

Now, Vaute Couture coats aren’t cheap by any means, but they are made in NYC following a conscientious clothing philosophy, and they’re sure to get you tons of compliments!   The Audrey coat retails for $565, while other Vaute Couture coats like the tulip-shaped Vaute and classic Belden will cost you about $130 less.

I couldn’t be more pleased with my Vaute Couture coat, and hope to be a repeat customer and supporter.  I’ve definitely started thinking more about ethical fashion and what goes into my clothing!
