Innovation, fabric selection, cutting precision and manufacturing quality are the 4 essential values of Bernard Zins.

After an Engineer degree from the renown Arts et Métiers national school, Bernard Zins specialized in Apparel at the Ecole Supérieure du Vêtement de Paris with Courrèges as a classmate. Within the context of the Marshall Plan, he is selected to be part of the first research trip for Apparel productivity and flies to the United States for the first time in 1950. This trip will be key for his vision of the future of this sector and the instrumental role it will give to the modernity and quality of its industrial aspects.

In 1959, Bernard Zins develops a new manufacturing technique for industrialized pants, with adjustable waistband, and protects it by a patent. In 1967, he founds the Manufacture Bernard Zins in Lens, specialized in Men’s high end pants, and in 1970 sets the showroom on Rue de Birague, in the Marais; a now famous Parisian district.

His vision becomes concrete: industrial power and precision is at the service of quality and know-how.

In 1972, the Manufacture uses the audacious computer assisted technology developed by Lectra Systèmes, demonstrating once more Bernard Zins’ dedication to innovation, as well as allowing the company to extend its expertise to Women’s pants.

His vision becomes concrete: industrial power and precision is at the service of quality and know-how.

Bernard Zins creates multiple innovative techniques for lining, flies, pockets, pleats, invisible seams, etc. that will be future standards in Pants making. As a new industrial benchmark, Bernard Zins is mandated to manufacture the diffusion lines for many of the most prestigious brands at that time, such as Pierre Cardin, Yves Saint Laurent, Yohji Yamamoto or Sonia Rykiel.

In 1999, the Printemps Department Store on Haussmann boulevard dedicates one of its biggest events to the “30 ans du Pantalon”, praising Bernard Zins’s know-how and showing its most recognized editions, while the Maison is now a trusted partner for many Luxury brands like Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Hermès, Lanvin, Old England, Arnys.


Bernard Zins has been the developing its eponymous brand via a new line mixing tradition and modernity, launched in 2006 in Japan.

More recently, the brand has revitalized its creation via a new and audacious artistic direction that plays with the codes and style signatures of the collections, more than ever in line with the founding values of Bernard Zins, “Ingénieur Pantalonnier”.
