Introducing the ALIGNE collection x BEEN London


We joined forces with ALIGNE to create the London-based fashion brand's first ever accessories collection.


The limited edition ALIGNE x BEEN London collection consists of three recycled leather accessories - a directional sling bag with an elongated strap detail, a graphic clutch with a wrist strap and a statement crossbody phone bag. The collaboration features earthy nature-based colours, contrasted with the more monochrome black and off-white tones.

The BEEN London and ALIGNE teams worked in collaboration to design the collection, fusing our shared values and ethos through timeless modern design.


Every year, we throw away a staggering 2.12 bn tonnes of waste. At the same time, we keep making new things by extracting virgin materials - the biggest driver of climate change.

The ALIGNE x BEEN London collection challenges the status quo. Every piece is handmade from materials that would otherwise end up in landfills.

By using only recycled materials - taking what is already in circulation - to create this collection, we are not only showing the potential value of recycling and utilising waste as a resource, but we are also able to significantly reduce the CO2 emissions compared to manufacturing using virgin materials.


The graphic origami-inspired Falkirk clutch bag was handcrafted in East London using smooth grain recycled leather, made from tannery offcuts that would otherwise have been discarded by the fashion industry. Featuring a decorative stud detail and a non-adjustable wrist strap, Falkirk has been designed to be worn as a handheld clutch or a stylish wristlet. Featuring a hidden interior card pocket for maximum functionality.


Handcrafted in East London from buttery-soft smooth grain recycled leather, the Wellesley sling can be worn high or slung low thanks to its adjustable shoulder strap with double stud closure. Boasting a soft roomy interior to fit all your daily essentials, as well as a hidden inside pocket for your cards.


The Willow crossbody phone bag has been designed to be worn ergonomically like a sling, with an adjustable strap to fit over layers. Handcrafted in the UK in smooth grain recycled leather, Willow is available in three colour ways. Both beautiful and functional, Willow features a useful and discrete card pocket at the back.


Luxe in approach, high-end in feel and brilliantly accessible, ALIGNE is powered by a small, passionate, London-based team that’s united by a love of style, obsessed by the cut of a sharp suit or ease of a denim dress with a firm commitment to break boundaries and make better choices for the planet. This is British style without compromise. 

“BEEN has been an inspiration to me for many years. Genia and I have been discussing ways to partner together for many seasons, so we are thrilled to be able to bring BEEN and ALIGNE together on a special project. Our two design teams have worked seamlessly together to curate three bags that represent the ALIGNE aesthetic with BEEN’s innovation of materials.”
