What is your Random Act of Creativity?

Traditional, timeless, tailored jackets. SANOË is the eponymous love child of Sabrina Burda and Noelle Pallais, life-long friends and dynamic duo behind RAC Lifestyle. Inspired by a shared passion for rummaging through their grandmothers’ closets in pursuit of vintage treasures, each SANOË jacket is itself a timeless heirloom, designed to be passed down and cherished for generations to come.

As NYC-based creatives with deep roots in their native cultures of Bavaria and Peru, respectively, Sabrina and Noelle have taken the inspiration of the ‘trachten jacken’––a traditional jacket to symbolize a connection to the earth and land––and reimagined it for the modern, urban-dwelling set.

What is your creative Mission?

SANOË jackets are built to stand the test of time and are produced in small batches by a family-owned factory in Portugal using natural, ethically sourced fabrics from renowned European mills. Through this quality over quantity approach to production, we hope to reduce sheer waste by transcending fast fashion and trend-driven consumption. As an ode to mother earth––and to our mountain-dwelling ancestors before us––we plant a tree for every one of our special jackets purchased. 

Each jacket is a limited edition, and for every piece sold, 1 tree is planted.
