IN AN INTENTIONAL APPROACH, ISAIAH HAS DEVELOPED RELATIONSHIPS WITH THE FINEST ARTISANS AND MATERIALS FROM AROUND THE GLOBE TO PRODUCE TIMELESS PIECES THAT FOCUS ON UPMOST DETAIL AND LONGEVITY, WHILE MAINTAINING A LOW ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT.


THE NAME

WHEN FORMING THE NAME, ISAIAH WANTED TO CREATE A WORD THAT ENCAPSULATED HIS PHILOSOPHY AND STORY. AUTEURENT REFERS TO THE FRENCH TRANSLATION OF AUTEUR, MEANING 'AUTHOR'.


COMPANY STRUCTURE

WITH NO OUTSIDE INVESTMENT, THE BRAND REMAINS INDEPENDENT AND PRIVATELY OWNED. THIS ALLOWS ISAIAH TO PRODUCE EXCEPTIONAL PIECES ALONG WITH ONGOING REFINEMENT AND ATTENTION TO ALL ASPECTS WITHIN THE BRAND. THIS MEANS PLACING SUSTAINABILITY, LONGEVITY AND QUALITY CRAFTSMANSHIP AT CORE OF EVERYTHING HE DOES.


PHILOSOPHY


TIMELESS ELEGANCE 

AUTEURENT, WHILE YOUNG, HAS DEMONSTRATED EXCEPTIONAL ABILITY TO PRODUCE GARMENTS THAT WILL STAND THE TEST OF TIME AND REMAIN RELEVANT. AN OFFERING FOR SOMEONE THAT WANTS SIMPLE DONE WELL. ALL GARMENTS ARE CREATED TO FIT SPECIFIC NEEDS WITHIN THE WARDROBE; WHETHER THAT BE WARMTH, FUNCTION, COMFORT OR EVENT ATTIRE. COUPLED WITH A MINIMALIST APPROACH AND FINISH, TIMELESS GARMENTS ARE DEVELOPED THAT WILL ALWAYS WEAR WELL.


QUALITY CONTROL 

WHETHER PRODUCED IN ITALY, JAPAN OR AUSTRALIA, ALL GARMENTS AND ACCESSORIES ARE THOROUGHLY CHECKED FOR EVEN THE SMALLEST IMPERFECTIONS BY OUR HIGHLY TRAINED IN HOUSE TEAM BASED IN MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA. BY MAINTAINING OUR COMMITMENT TO QUALITY, YOU CAN ENSURE THAT YOUR GARMENT OR ACCESSORY WILL LAST FOR YEARS TO COME. 


LIMITED PRODUCTION

IN THE INTEREST OF MAINTAINING OUR BRAND PHILOSOPHY, ALL PRODUCTION IS INTENTIONALLY RESTRICTED TO ENSURE ONLY THE HIGHEST QUALITY GARMENTS MAKE IT INTO YOUR HANDS. THIS ALSO REDUCES OUR STRAIN ON HUMAN AND NATURAL RESOURCES. THIS IS WHY YOU MAY FIND OUR ITEMS ARE SOLD OUT FOR LENGTHS OF TIME. YOU WILL ALSO FIND THAT MANY OF OUR ITEMS ARE MADE TO ORDER. THIS ENSURES WE CAN MAINTAIN THE HIGHEST STANDARDS THROUGHOUT THE CREATION OF ALL PRODUCTS AND ELIMINATE THE WASTE OF PRECIOUS NATURAL MATERIALS. THIS ALSO ALLOWS FOR A RELAXED AND HUMANISTIC ENVIRONMENT FOR OUR ARTISANS. 


LOCAL MANUFACTURING

AUTEURENT HAS MADE A COMMITMENT TO SUPPORT LOCAL CRAFTSPEOPLE WHERE POSSIBLE. IN DOING SO, WE CAN WORK CLOSELY WITH THEM, UTILISING THEIR EXPERTISE AND EXPERIENCE TO CREATE BEAUTIFUL GARMENTS AND ACCESSORIES. CURRENTLY, OUR GARMENTS AND ACCESSORIES ARE PRODUCED IN THE FOLLOWING COUNTRIES: AUSTRALIA, ITALY, JAPAN AND SOUTH KOREA. 


MATERIALS

DISCOVER NATURAL MATERIALS FROM AROUND THE GLOBE. WE USE ONLY THE MOST LUXURIOUS AND BEAUTIFUL MATERIALS AVAILABLE. WE DO NOT COMPROMISE FOR LOWER QUALITY OR SYNTHETIC ALTERNATIVES. THIS ENSURES THE LONGEVITY OF OUR GARMENTS, ALONG WITH MAINTAINING THE HIGHEST STANDARDS OF CRAFTSMANSHIP WHICH FLOWS DIRECTLY THROUGH TO OUR COMMITMENT TO PRODUCING SUSTAINABLE CLOTHES WITH MINIMAL EFFECT ON THE ENVIRONMENT.

SUstainability


A NEW LUXURY

AUTEURENT WELCOMES A NEW ERA OF TRANSPARENCY, HUMANISTIC PRINCIPLES AND AN AWARENESS OF THE WORLD WE LIVE IN. SUSTAINABILITY IS NOT A TREND SUBJECT, BUT RATHER A PHILOSOPHY THAT GUIDES OUR PATH TO BUILDING SUSTAINABLE PRACTICES INTO EVERY FACET OF AUTEURENT. WE LOOK FORWARD TO DEVELOPING OUR COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABILITY NOT ONLY THROUGH DAILY PRACTICES BUT LONG-TERM INITIATIVES. WE HOPE YOU ENJOY READING THROUGH OUR KEY INITIATIVES IN REGARDS TO SUSTAINABILITY AND PLEASE CHECK BACK AND SEE WHAT NEW PRACTICES WE HAVE ACTIONED IN THE NEAR FUTURE.


TRACEABILITY

WHERE POSSIBLE, WE STRIVE TO DELIVER EXACT INFORMATION ON WHERE WE SOURCE AND PRODUCE ITEMS. THIS CAN RANGE FROM THE COUNTRY OF MANUFACTURE TO THE ORIGIN OF MATERIALS AND OTHER STAGES OF OUR DEVELOPMENT. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN FINDING OUT MORE ABOUT AN EXACT ITEM, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT US DIRECTLY. CURRENTLY, THE ORIGIN OF JUST OVER 80% OF ALL OUR MATERIALS USE IS TRACEABLE. WE HOPE TO GROW THIS NUMBER TO 100% BEFORE 2022. 


MADE TO ORDER

MANY OF OUR ITEMS ARE MADE TO ORDER. THIS IS KEY TO OUR PHILOSOPHY OF LIMITED PRODUCTION DUE TO THE EXCLUSIVE NATURE OF THE MATERIALS WE USE. THIS PRINCIPLE ENSURES DEADLINES AND DEMAND DOES NOT JEOPARDISE THE QUALITY OF OUR GARMENTS OR ACCESSORIES. IT ALLOWS THE NECESSARY TIME TO BE TAKEN AND GUARANTEES THE HIGHEST STANDARDS ARE MET. HAVING ITEMS MADE TO ORDER ALSO ENSURES THE EXCLUSIVITY OF OUR GARMENTS AND ACCESSORIES, WHICH SUBSEQUENTLY REDUCES DEMAND FOR FINE MATERIALS AND NATURAL RESOURCES.

'COHERENT, ELEGANT AND UNCOMPROMISING DESIGN WILL LAST A LIFETIME.'
