What better way to make an ultimate fashion statement right now than with a vegan leather jacket?
As a vegan myself, I have invested in lots of vegan leather jackets, shoes and bags for some time now.
In time, I’ve learned who’s worth my attention and money and I am going to share those brands with you now.
Most jackets on my list are hand-made and designed to provide you with that classic and chic look while ensuring you remain animal friendly.
Without further ado, these are the best 16 designer vegan leather jackets out there, handpicked to help you make a bold statement.
1. Skin Free Skin Coat – Stella McCartney
I like Stella’s ‘Skin Free Skin’ coat for its stylish and sophisticated look.
With a keen ethical code, Stella McCartney has pledged to forego the use of animal leather in all collections.
Any Stella McCartney vegan leather jacket is a must-have vegan statement.
Yet, this one is by far one of my favs.
2. Vegan Leather Puffer Jacket – Nanushka
Sandra Sandor has made Nanushka, her designer label, a global fashion force with deep vegan values.
Nanushka’s creations of subtle femininity and flair are beautifully matched with eco-conscious and animal-friendly vibes.
One of the brand’s signature product is this vegan leather puffer jacket.
I like this puffer jacket as it ads further volume and dimension to my silhouette, whenever I need it.
Oh, the jacket has a superb feel to it; soft, lustrous, this vegan leather jacket can be styled in a myriad of ways.
3. Vegan Leather Military Jacket – Sarah Regensburger
Part of Sarah Regunsburger‘s AW 20 collection, this ‘Dark Queen’ vegan leather jacket is an absolute head-turner.
Worn by wild-at-heart dreamers and lovers of gender-fluid styles, this label helps you stay ahead of the curve.
Made out of Italian premium vegan leather, this superb jacket has a unique military shape and a beautiful opening at the front.
4. Long Vegan Leather Raincoat – Julia Allert
Julia Allert is a high-end designer label hailing from the beautiful country of Moldova.
Driven by a ‘break the rules’ motto, and with ‘slow fashion’ at heart, this label has some of the most amazing vegan leather jackets I’ve seen!
Take this ‘Long Vegan Leather’ raincoat’, according to the designers, a unique interpretation of the country’s tumultuous and fascinating past.
The coat can be worn on its own (like a dress) or unbuttoned and paired with a classy turtle neck.
One of my favourite vegan leather jackets, especially on rainy days.
