We believe that beauty and integrity are one and the same. Advene is a New York City-based accessories brand with a new vision for responsible luxury. Our name comes from advenience — a term coined by philosopher Roland Barthes for “art that stirs something inside you.” We design elevated essentials to spark inspiration, every day.
Each handbag is the result of months of research and dozens of prototypes. We release just one style at a time, taking care to source 100% traceable raw materials and to innovate enduring silhouettes with little to no plastic. Progress is our promise.
