New Recruits | Suzanne Rae

The first of our AW16 New Recruits, we delighted to introduce Suzanne Rae. Available exclusively at Couverture in the UK.

Suzanne Rae is a progressive womenswear label coming out of Brooklyn, New York. Creating bold yet understated pieces, Suzanne adds subtle eccentricities to staple shapes, choosing between versatile neutral tones and colourful prints created in collaboration with local artists.

Reflective in her collections, Suzanne is a strong proponent of quality over quantity and selecting garments to become a cherished part of your wardrobe rather than a disposable quick fix. Thus each season’s collection offers clothing with innovative minimalism, both beautiful in design and functional in their composition.

Since launching in 2008 Suzanne Rae has risen to fame in part for the strong ethical, environmental and social values expressed through her business. Alongside the label’s involvement with several women’s advocacy and social awareness groups around New York City, Suzanne is conscious of the impact of textile production on the environment, aiming for her business to reduce waste and utilise sustainable and eco-friendly materials.

The garments themselves are manufactured in NY or Italy where most of their fabrics are sourced. Producing locally not only supports jobs and trade within the local community but allows for closer attention to the welfare of workers and the quality of her product. The choice to develop and manufacture in Italy being a conscious decision to reduce their carbon footprint, stay local and reap the benefits of age-old Italian quality production techniques.

With her last collection created under the mantra “I’m not your seductress”, Suzanne Rae wants her clothes to be worn for the wearer, and not for the gaze of others.
