It’s not very often we come across a vegan bag brand we adore. But we’ve fallen hard for So Long, Marianne!
The company was created with compassion at heart. They are first and foremost a vegan and sustainable luxury handbag brand. These are their benchmarks. The founders began their journey wanting to try and change the fashion industry from within. To help lead the way in putting an end to cruelty within the fashion world with luxury designs and manufacturing.
The founders understood there has long been a huge gap in the market for high end vegan fashion. Some of the biggest fashion houses have dipped their toes into sustainability, and even making non leather items, exploring various materials and fabrics to re-make some iconic bags.
However high-end luxury has historically never been sustainable in its essence. Seasonal means wasteful, by its very nature. Because if something is seasonal, it has a short life span until maybe it comes back around as vintage. But by that time, the vast majority of items are discarded. We also know that since some of the highest end brands need to clear stock without sales they have burned or landfilled huge amounts of stock rather than devaluing their brands with sales.
So Long, Marianne has made a pledge never to go on sale. They don’t have to because they are non-seasonal. They will always make classic styles and bags that last the test of time both in terms of their design and the materials and workmanship. They may run limited edition colours, but in very small quantities to ensure no wastage. Their quality controls within the factories they work with are meticulous and strict, meaning that they try to ensure there is minimal wastage in the production process.
The name of the brand is inspired by a song from the 1960s by the famous late Leonard Cohen. Cohen was known for his romantic poetic lyrics in his songs. The brand really wanted to make that a big part of So Long, Marianne. They want to put the femininity back into feminism, to advocate for class and beauty and for women to feel strong and sexy while being comfortable showing their fairer and softer side.
For their individual collections, they have also been inspired by Europe’s most beautiful and romantic destinations. The elegance of Italy, the beauty of France, the story of a woman from Greece. The bags are designed in the cosmopolitan city of London.
This brand bears the essence of historical femininity, inspired by romantic destinations and classic style with a contemporary twist. Wearing So Long Marianne is a statement of beauty, grace and elegance. The brand has heart and soul; this really is fashion with compassion at its finest.
So Long, Marianne would like to offer one lucky winner the chance to experience the beauty of their vegan bags, worth over $500!
