Behind the brand
History of Anine Bing
In 2012, Danish model turned designer, Anine Bing launched the eponymous brand from her garage in LA in partnership with her husband Nicolai Nielsen. From the beginning, she worked hard at balancing motherhood and business, and in doing both successfully, she inspires women worldwide to dream big and go for it. Bing is a strong advocate for female empowerment and strives to dress the multifaceted modern woman. As a walking personification of the namesake label, she is deeply connected to what she wants women to feel in her clothes. And showcasing rebellious fabrics such as leather and denims (Bing’s personal favorites) her collections are both elegant and defiant—just like Bing herself.
As a globe-trotting model, Bing started a blog to share updates with friends and family back in Sweden—naturally, this highlighted her unique sense of style. Inspired by her Scandinavian upbringing, Bing’s style was rooted in simple yet cool essentials, whilst simultaneously epitomizing her LA lifestyle with an effortless bohemian-rock edge and topped off with vintage accessories. Unsurprisingly, her distinctive ensembles gained a cult-following of their own as readers became intrigued by her latest wardrobe edits.
The questions that pursued pertaining to her style, inspired Bing to start a line of her own. Bing launched in her garage with a small collection of carefully considered pieces. When she launched, Instagram was already booming but it wasn’t yet overpopulated with paid influencers and intrusive advertisements. And so she was able to leverage her loyal following and the platform itself to maintain authentic relationships with consumers by engaging with them personally. As a result Anine Bing became a favorite amongst celebrity stylish and everyday it-girls. And over the past decade it has grown into the powerhouse brand we know today.
Interesting facts about Anine Bing
Founder Anine Bing has always been a strong advocate for female empowerment. And so is the eponymous label. Anine Bing was born to dress independent and free women. Pieces such as studded leather jackets and drapey suits were designed to marry everyday dichotomies. Just like the contemporary women (and Bing herself), each collection proves that soft simplicity and strong exteriors can co-exist. While carefree edgy details complement delicately feminine silhouettes. From its launch, the bold brand has defied expectations of what a working woman should wear. And instead it sets out to reimagine ensembles that are comfortable and confident, sophisticated and stylish. A tall order, we know—but one we shouldn’t have to compromise on.
In 2020, Anine Bing partnered with Dress for Success. The global nonprofit organization empowers women to achieve economic independence. And since its launch in 1997, it has helped over 1.2 million women by providing a network of support, professional attire and the tools needed to thrive. The Anine Bing x Dress for Success collaboration is a collection of work-appropriate pieces that are confidence-inducing and effortlessly stylish. And for every #bossgirl blazer purchased, they’re donating one to the female-forward organization. Ladies, we’ll see you in the boardroom.
But first: let’s pull a few pieces together. Style aficionado Anine Bing may be a natural at flouting fashion norms. But for many of us, the thought of curating new everyday ensembles is just a case of overwhelming decision fatigue. Enter: the brand’s one on one styling initiative. Daring you to be bold, to diverge from what you know and to truly uncover your unique sense of style, Anine Bing’s virtual shopping and styling appointments can be booked by anyone at no extra cost.

Signature materials and craftsmanship
Anine Bing aims to elevate our wardrobes whilst minimizing our environmental impact. The responsible brand is transparent about the fact that they are not yet perfect. And they are committed to constantly evolving and seeking new ways to reduce their footprint even further.
By using only the highest quality materials and considered craftsmanship, every piece is made to last. Whilst neutral hues and classical fits maintain a timeless aesthetic. This means that Anine Bing apparel doesn’t conform to a fast-fashion mindset that sees garments sent to landfills after one or two wears. But rather, they are concerned with designing quality versatile items that live a new life in our wardrobes over and over again.
To ensure that their materials outlast multiple seasons of wear, Anine Bing adheres to a strict buying process. By testing fabrics and designs before they reorder, they guarantee product performance. And they reduce the risk of over-ordering materials that can’t be used. They further curtail excess waste by sharing fabrics with other affluent labels. This means that they use up deadstock before ordering new materials wherever possible.
Anine Bing only uses 100% organic cotton for their graphic tees. This is one of the most sustainable luxury materials as it is void of harmful fertilizers and pesticides and uses very little water in production. Additionally, the conscious label only dyes their vegan-leathers and sustainably-sourced leathers with non-harmful chemicals. And they ship ecommerce orders in recycled nylon mailers, preventing 246kg of green gas emissions and saving 34,500kW of total energy annually.
Clearly, they’re not just chic—they’re eco-chic.
Where is Anine Bing made?
Rooted in Scandinavian minimalism and inspired by an offbeat Cali lifestyle, every garment is designed in LA by Anine Bing herself. But not all pieces are manufactured in the same place. In order to obtain the highest quality materials, the brand determines where a piece is manufactured depending on individual requirements and sustainability practices. Leather, cotton and gold items are ethically produced in Turkey alongside other affluent labels. Whilst a few other pieces are produced around the U.S.
