The story of Collégien is that of a family, a village, and a priceless tradition passed down from generation to generation. From the small village of Briatexte in France’s southwest, the Guilles family have run their hosiery factory for over a century. It was in 1947 that they introduced the Collégien brand, and with it, the innovative rubber-soled slipper sock! In 2007, Olivier Guille, today’s CEO and the founder’s great-grandchild, decided to revive the brand by reinterpreting the company archives, and in particular, the popular slipper socks. Drawing on generations of technical know-how, today Collégien continues to create socks, tights, and slippers entirely in France, using the finest long-staple Egyptian cotton, cashmere, silk, and extra-soft lurex. And with a fabulous array of colours and patterns to choose from, keeping little feet warm has never been this easy!
