SINCE 1967, THE HOUSE OF ZINS HAS CONTINUED TO SHARPEN ITS KNOW-HOW AND ITS UNIQUE VISION OF DESIGN WITH THE SAME PASSION.
Maison Zins' history begins in the 1950s, when its founder, Bernard Zins, returns from a trip to the US under the Marshall Plan. There, the Arts & Craft engineer, a graduate of the École Supérieure du Vêtement de Paris, discovers innovative confection techniques. Ten years of hard work and a patent later, he forever transforms pants manufacturing by achieving what no Frenchman has ever managed to do before: industrializing tailor quality.
Behind this prowess lies the desire to lend prestige to a garment too often neglected. Just like a designer, combining a sharp eye with a technical point of view, he wants to offer the best possible version, and make it available to a larger number of people. His mastery seduces the most prestigious names in Parisian luxury, such as Pierre Cardin, Saint Laurent, Lanvin, Céline, Hermès, Chanel and Arnys.
OF EXCEPTIONAL QUALITY, ITS PANTS ARE DESIGNED TO ACCOMPANY EVERY MOMENT OF LIFE WITH ELEGANCE AND NATURALNESS.
In the 80s, the House comes into the limelight with its eponymous label. With comfort as its golden rule, the brand devotes itself to creating elegant and functional pants, adapted to every situation. The chino chic and the French pleat soon becomes its signatures. Zins is also appreciated for its travel range, where its sense of innovation is used to design techwear pieces with unsuspected performance. A technicality always at the service of a good fit, for an elegance and ease that remain invariable.
Concerned about ethics and respect for the environment, the family-owned company carefully chooses its partners in France and its neighboring countries. A commitment to responsible fashion that it pursues internally, with a focus on eco-design, French supply chain and long-lasting quality in its processes and sourcing.
Combining heritage and modernity, the House far prefers style to trends. Gifted with an extra touch of soul, they reflect a refined yet discreet art of living, like a secret that is passed on between insiders.
Each piece praises elegance and comfort. Noble fabrics, discreet fantasies and precise cuts then become the characteristic elements of a wardrobe composed of essentials, designed to underline the natural presence of the wearer.
